Great old fashioned hamburgers and onion rings in a 60s themed diner

My sister-in-law and I planned a trip to Brenham, and I researched the area. I found the listing for the diner, and it looked like fun. I'm glad I had looked it up, because there is nothing to tell you it is there. You head into their little airport and to the left is a a big building - but... read more

Located inside the local municipal airport, this is a tiny diner who's high school waitstaff wear poodle skirts and saddle shoes, and patrons can put their quarters in the jukebox. Great food, but be prepared to wait upwards of an hour for a table. Planes fly in from all over the country with 2 or more people onboard, plus tourists... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the beautiful setting on a porch overlooking the bluebonnets and buttercups with a breeze blowing. Service was EXCELLENT, so don't believe anything else you read about this restaurant. Those girls can move! Food was hot, but catfish was a bit overcooked (maybe cooked twice???). All and all, it was interesting, but not the... More

My husband and I arrived around 1pm on a Saturday. The wait was an hour which wasn't a problem. After all, it was one of our first beautiful Spring weekends and there were a lot of people out enjoying the bluebonnets. We opted to eat inside since it was around 65 degrees outside and I'm a Texas girl who doesn't... More

Been a regular at the Southern Flyer since it opened. Was there to see the Texas Raiders B-17 on the grand opening. Just the best $100 hamburger stop for pilots and lucky passengers from all around this part of the state. Get there early before they run out of Apple pies and peach cobbler that are locally made. The Bluebell... More

The food was great and the wait staff wear poodle skirts. I had the ceasar salad because we were headed to The Blue Bell Factory. The salad was delicious. The atmosphere was great. We did not see a plane fly in but the weather was cold so we did not sit outside to long after our meal. Everyone was very... More

A friend of mine recommended this place. We drove from Houston to Brennum for the day. We already knew where we'd eat. The Southern Flyer Diner was so easy to get too. The exciting thing about this is that airport is right next to the diner. We walked in to the diner and were greeted by a friendly staff. The... More

Will visit again. Good experience also for pilots and locals. Services worked well even with crowd and waiting for table.

We just had the pleasure of dining at this cute little restaurant. The service was exceptional. The smiles were genuine. And the food was really good. From the moment we walked in the door we did not stop smiling until we were miles away after leaving. It's a step back in time. A must visit when passing through Brenham.

We had a nice lunch here. The food was good. It is a fifties type atmosphere. The burger was very large and very good.
