Yes - there are a lot of restaurants on the public side, and for those who fly a lot, they can use their club memberships to access lounges that serve even more food once past immigration.

Quite a lot of surveys out there. Here's an interesting one :

Travellers vote Lima airport lounge world's best
12 March 2010
Reuters

Airport lounges can ease some of the pain of travelling, and the SUMAQ VIP lounge of Lima's international airport has been voted the world's best for 2010 by independent airport lounge programme Priority Pass.

Priority Pass, the world's biggest membership programme that gives frequent travellers access to airport lounges regardless of their class of travel or which airline they've flown, asked more than 30,000 passengers from all over the world to pick their favourite lounge from among a 600-strong list.

The lounge at Peru's Jorge Chavez International Airport came up tops, reclaiming its 2009 position, with travellers praising its business facilities and relaxation rooms that have blankets, pillows and showers.

"The awards reflect truly exemplary service standards from the SUMAQ VIP Lounge and our other award winners," Jonathan French, head of brand at Priority Pass, said in a statement.

By region, Continental Presidents Club, Terminal E, Houston, Texas, was voted the best lounge in North America and Zurich's Panorama Lounge the best in Europe.

In the Asia Pacific, KAL Lounge, Concourse A, in Seoul's Incheon Airport was in first place while Bahrain's Dilmun Lounge was the top in the Middle East and Africa.

That's why it's important to read about the survey's methodology, understand its limitations, and analyze the results before jumping to simple conclusions that such and such got 10, 20, 100 awards this year. I wouldn't want to count a questionable survey as 1 in an equivalent way as a much more scientific industry survey.

Portland is best airport, LaGuardia worst - survey

NEW YORK, Nov 30 (Reuters) - Portland, Oregon's international airport topped the list as America's best airport while New York's LaGuardia was ranked the worst, according to a Zagat survey of 30 U.S. airports released on Tuesday.

It was the fourth consecutive last-place finish for LaGuardia, a congested airport in the borough of Queens which is plagued by delays but hopes to burnish its image with new high-profile restaurants.

The airport, which managed only a 6.2 rating on a 30-point scale, scored far lower in the survey released this week than even reviled flying hubs such as Los Angeles International, Chicago's O'Hare and Miami International.

LaGuardia was down two points from its last-place 2007 finish, and far below Miami's lowly 7.8.

Portland, already lauded for low crime, a burgeoning food scene and tolerant citizenry, added another quality-of-life crown as the more-than 8,000 frequent flyers surveyed by Zagat rated its airport 22.5. This was nearly two points higher than second-place Tampa International.

The ratings appeared to skew geographically, with airports in the northeast or Mid-Atlantic states occupying six of the eight lowest positions.

Airports in the West including Denver, Salt Lake City and Phoenix also got relatively high marks. Houston's George Bush and Sky Harbor in Phoenix scored significantly higher than last year, bucking the national trend of lower ratings each year for most airports.

The survey, which was based on some 139,000 actual flights, also rated airlines with JetBlue tops for its economy service, Continental leading for premium, or non-coach service, and Singapore Airlines number-one for both classes of service among international carriers.

Southwest Airlines got high marks for its Web site, on-time service, check-in procedures, luggage policy and overall value, while JetBlue was tops for in-flght entertainment.

Notably absent from most all the higher rankings were major carriers US Airways and United Airlines.
