Good breakfast

Breakfast before visiting the museum. Food was good. Service was very slow tough to get coffee. Maybe we was there during slow times.

As a kid, my grandma was a cook at a small-town diner and this place took me right back to some of the best comfort food I've had. My son had the Reuben and I had a Turkey Burger. We received big portions of very tasty food. Cooked just right and served up with a giant beverage. They had a... More

Very good casual place for a sandwich or salad for lunch, lots of choices and platters available. Famous for their Reuben sandwich. Pleasant casual dining , quick service adjacent to flight museum, enormous glasses of ice tea and nice portions. Seems popular with locals, open for dinner again with many choices. Spotless and very nice. Worth a trip out a... More

We visited the Historic Aviation Memorial Museum in Tyler, TX, and stayed for lunch at the Skyline Cafe. We ordered Reuben and tuna sandwiches. Both sandwiches were very tasty. It was a quaint Americana experience. The service and food were good - we would return for the food.

Great Food at a reasonable price! Visit and tour the air museum and top it off with a great lunch. The cakes are delicious and homemade.

My family and I love eating here. The are a lot of options and I've eaten everything from salads to burgers and wraps. I've never been disappointed with the food. It is all freshly made and the cakes are out of this world!!!! My only complaint is it can be a little expensive!

If you like fresh, not packaged or frozen, this is a good place to go. It's clean, offering quite good basic food. I had good quantity of meats, crispy lettuce and tomato on my club sandwich and very good chips. Drinks are large. Others with us had other items and were equally pleased. Severs were quite good when we were... More

First of all the food is average, Nothing to write home about. My family visited last Sunday and we were sadly disappointed. The wait is ridiculous. would have rather had a drive thru meal and had gotten to enjoy my Sunday with family, not waiting for an hour on mediocre food. The decor is miserable. Do they really think that... More

The wait staff were super friendly and the coffee was hot and delicious. The service is excellent & the restaurant is really clean but I gave this place a 3.5 because the food lacked flavor and it was really just an average place. I really wanted to like this little diner and my hubby and I may go back for... More

For those that are not pilots calm down. The breakfast is very reasonable. The hundred dollar hamburger is a reference to the amount of gas that is burned to fly to a favorite eating spot for good food and was coined as a phrase decades ago. Although with inflation the reality is whether hamburger or breakfast the food is around... More
