Ohare terminal 1 to terminal 5

We have an approx 3 hour layover at O'Hare landing at terminal 1 and leaving out of terminal 5. Is this enough time to get a bite to eat in terminal 1 and get to terminal 5? how do we get to terminal 5, is there a shuttle?

The train is very fast and efficient. As noted, do make sure you get something airside before you go outside security. There's nothing outside security and really nothing that I recall in T5. Lots of choices in Terminal 1, or you can even walk to other terminals for other food choices if you wish.

Good luck.

T5 used to be god awful with not a single restaurant. But they are part way into a renovation. The airport hired a new concession company. Have not been yet but some places are open now for the summer travel season. When complete, it should not be such a problem anymore.

Hello d n

Yes with 3 full hours you will have plenty of time

As stated above make sure to eat before exiting security in terminal #1 unfortunately the improvements in terminal #5 are still not what I would call fully up to par yet. Additionally many more dining options to choose from in #1 i.e. (cuisine, price point, etc.)

To get to terminal #5 Yes take the shuttle train it is very efficient fast and easily navigable
