Not the best local diner. Small, usually crowded and the seating is uncomfortable. Aviation themed, but nothing really special about it.

Met a colleague for a breakfast meeting there and it was great. It's a treat to see planes take off and land while enjoying good food. I had corned beef hash w/my eggs and it was yummy!

We stopped at the Tin Goose Diner because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. Cute diner with aviation traveling theme. We had Chili- two way and three way. It was a very good lunch.

Very cool diner! Built in 1950. We had good food. They offer a lot of different meat options for breakfast, so if you like meat..... they had sirloin, corned beef hash, biscuits and gravy, etc. Plus your standard egg dishes and French toast.

We were impressed with the speed of service and quality of food. Hurry and get in line. It's a small place so a line forms fast to get in.
