We ate here today after visiting the Air Force Academy. The food was very good. The portions were perfect for lunch and the service was quick. If you are an aviation enthusiast, this restaurant is perfect for you.

Our kids said their food was the best ever here. My husband and I agreed. The waitresses wear pilot garb. The ambiance is awesome. I was amazed at the eye candy of the main restaurant. The plane room was unique, too.

We were looking to eat somewhere different and you can't get more different than a converted air refueller! Normal, standard American food but the location is obviously unique. You can even sit in the cockpit and play! Great for kids (and big kids!)

First time visitor to this establishment. If you're an aviation buff, you cannot miss having a meal or two here. Show me another restaurant that you can eat dinner in the fuselage of a KC-97 if you so choose! Or have dinner under the wing...More
