Most communities you would not think the airport would be the a great local spot, but in SLO it is one of the best. It is relaxing here, covered outdoor seating available, view is great, variety of food all good and great owners. Also two hour free parking.

Airport restaurants, in general, do not have great reputations for good food or service. The Spirit of San Luis is a glaring exception to this rule. Patrons from all over the county visit the airport just to eat at this restaurant, as do aviators from throughout the state. The food is not fancy, just fresh and tasty. The service is... More

They have a very varied menu and nice seating next to the SLO airport runway. Service is fast and friendly. they even give you a parking pass so you don't have to pay for parking. Of course, we didn't know this until we went inside the restaurant. So get your parking pass first and then enjoy your meal. Not too... More

Food good, service always friendly as it is run by terrific owners. Try the onion rings and the burgers. Great stop over whether flying in or driving by.

A highlight of flying into SLO is this restaurant. Indoor or outdoor seating, we always go outdoors. Lots of small aircraft and helicopter traffic to watch as you are eating. The wait staff is well trained and seems to enjoy being there. Food quality is very good and consistent. A full bar is available and they will give you a... More

Good food, free 2 hour parking, same couple owners for years and a great view of the landings and beyond. This is the place as a local you go to meet just out of town (which is only 5 minutes away) where everything will slow down and you can relax with friends or conduct business. Never had a bad meal...

I love this restaurant. Every time I am in the area I make sure to go here. The staff are so nice and accommodating. I have small kids and they love to see the airplanes taking off and landing. They do it right in front of you! This is not your typical airport restaurant. This is a true restaurant where... More

I always have time to spare before my flight but not enough to look for a restaurant etc. I fell upon the Spirit of San Luis and now am a regular. I love their grilled fish sandwich. It is hearty but does not make you uncomfortable on your flight ahead. The view of the runway is as close as you... More

My wife and I were greeted by my daughter, son-in-law and grand kids. It was lunch time and not much choice without a drive. They had tried Spirit many times before and had not been let down. It was another home run for us. The food was great and the view of the runway was entertaining for young and old.... More

Flying out of SLO, I found myself with time to spare and decided to go to this little restaurant that was steps away from the terminal. What an amazing find! The restaurant is very cute and clean and the staff were amazing! One of the waitresses recommended a local wine that was produced by her father at his vineyard. Fantastic!... More
