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... read 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.

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.
