When you're flying out of Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport or just connecting through, it's not a bad spot to be, according to travel website, The Points Guy, who named it as the best airport in the America.

The site evaluated 30 airports on flight delays, security wait times, access to public transportation, drive time to and from the airport, parking and Wi-Fi fees, and the number of restaurants and lounges, to determine its rankings.

While Phoenix did not take the top spot in a specific category, the site noted the PHX Sky Train, which connects passengers from the light rail to the airport, "excellent flight delay and flight cancellation scores," and the number of restaurants as the airport's highlights.

Stuck overnight? Here are the seven eateries open 27/4 in Terminals 2, 3 and 4.

Sky Harbor does have some quality local restaurants, including Joe's Real BBQ, Wildflower Bread Company, Chelsea's Kitchen, Barrio Cafe, La Grande Orange, Matt's Big Breakfast, and NYPD Pizza.

The one suggestion the site noted? More lounges.
