Great Food

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

We were looking for a local eatery and read Trip Advisor about Southern Flyer and the great burgers. The restaurant IA actually at the airport. We stopped at noon were promptly seated and our order taken. I had the patty melt, it was great. Great atmosphere.

A friend invited me over to Brenham and she knew I enjoyed being around airplanes. She has a friend who lives very close to the airport. He is a pilot, so that gave him and me an opportunity to talk about aviation. Our mutual friend was amazed to walk up and down the apron listening to a couple of pilots.... More

50's retro diner, poodle skirts and all! Plus it's adjacent to a little airport. The food was good with adequate portions. I got the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich with fries and cheese sticks as an appetizer. My girlfriend got the chicken wings which are not typical "Hot wings" they were fried but very good she said. Nice screened patio out back... More

We enjoy going there for lunch. The food is to die for. We have a cousin that has a plane. When they fly in from Austin the family gathers at the airport. We enjoy watching the planes landing and taking off. The menu has a variety of choices.The atmosphere is nostalgic. The waitresses where poodle skirts and saddle shoes. It... More

Been wanting to try this place for awhile. It did not dissapoint! It was a beautiful day so I sat outside. I had the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich with a side of onion rings and it was delicious! An added bonus is watching the small aircraft come and go.

What a great little place! Tucked away in a building next to the runway at Brenham's municipal airport is this 1950s-themed lunch spot. Great atmosphere, nice waitresses, and solid diner-style chow. We arrived (by car!) on a Saturday morning a little after opening time (11am). We were immediately seated at one of the chrome-edged tables (the place did get crowded... More

Fantastic service, very good homecooked food, cute decor and clean. The waitresses wear these adorable poodle skirts and saddle shoes...it is like stepping back in time. Definitely a MUST to visit in the area.

Waitresses, atmosphere, service and food phenomenal! It was as if I stepped back to my teenage years in the 1950's with the large jukebox playing, waitresses wearing poodle skirts with multiple crinolines, white blouses with neckerchiefs, saddle shoes and socks, cinch belts and pony tails. I had the same pink poodle skirt outfit back in 1955 and upon hearing that,... More
