Beautiful airport and surrounding area view. New terminal a block away. Perfect SLO weather. Experimental Aircraft Association had a Ford Tri-Motor fly in. Place was pretty packed. Food terrific. Service, good considering. Moving up to level four as aTripadvisor Reviewer. Maybe I'll get epaulets.

So often we think of "airport " food as something inferior, designed for the traveler in a rush without regards to quality or repeat business. However, Spirit of San Luis was excellent! I had an early am flight home, decided to make a test drive to see the airport/car rental return area the night before, and did some research as... More

Having been in several small airports, I anticipated our breakfast option as pre-made bacon and powdered eggs... or a burrito... or if lunch was available, pre-made sandwiches or packaged sandwiches are the norm. After checking our luggage, we walked to the Spirit of San Luis Restaurant and had one of the best meals in a long time! My husband had... More

We had a great lunch there today. Daughter ordered the chicken strips and fries and it was a HUGE portion. Very tasty.

Well How nice to have this restaurant just outside the terminal at the San Luis Obispo Airport. I have eaten here many times over the years, Today was special - I had lunch and dinner here today. Really! I went in for my noon flight and ended up leaving a 7 PM instead, rather than drag anyone through the details... More

Seeing a family member off to Florida via the SLO airport we stopped here for dinner. First if you can, get the outside if the weather is nice. You get to watch helicopters and single engine planes land and take off without it being too loud. Started with chicken wings. There was a cooked on seasoning but not a sloppy... More

The restaurant is adjacent to the airfield, and there is a great opportunity to sit outside and watch the aircraft landing and departing. Service is super friendly and it's a wonderful and relaxing place to spend some time. Pets are even allowed outside on the patio !

This airport restaurant has been consistently good for over a decade. (It was sold a few years ago, but the menu and quality are unchanged.) The sandwiches are the main draw, although the "lite fare" quesadilla appetizer is a meal in itself (and one of the cheapest things on the menu...) The sandwiches come with french fries or other sides--try... More

The restaurant is located a short walk from the main terminal. The main parking lot is in between. The restaurant gives parking vouchers for this area. The view from any table is awesome, and they have a outdoor patio that overlooks an aeea of the tarmac between the tower and the restaurant. You are facing south, and you can watch... More

We flew in on a friends plane for lunch and were very happily surprised to find all the food was rather tasty. A very good burger.
