Unfortunately, if you want to chow down on the famous coach's burgers, you'll have to have a ticket, since the restaurant is located past the TSA screening passenger point.

The good news? If you find yourself flying on Southwest, Alaska, Allegiant, Frontier, Silver, United, Virgin America, or WestJet at Concourse C of FLL's Terminal 1, you can enjoy a juicy burger like the classic Shula Burger topped with

American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles; or the Don, a burger/hot dog combo served with pickle, onion sauce, American cheese, ketchup, yellow mustard on a brioche style bun.

Shula Burger at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is the sixth Shula Burger to open since 2012. Coach Shula also owns five Shula's Steak Houses and operates the Don Shula Foundation, which recently donated $1.5 million to the Moffit Cancer Center.
