Second time in a month that we couldn't get served. First time walked out without getting food, thought I would give them a second try. No better than first. Took 45 minutes for food while other people that came in later got food first. When we checked out the female at the register didn't care about bad service. Will not... More

First time to eat here and we were very impressed. Great breakfast is what we had but we've heard they have great burgers as well. Our waitress Jane was very friendly and did a great job. It's also a nice place to sit and watch small planes come and go. We will return for sure.

After oversleeping and missing church, my husband and I opted to go to the Runway Café at Wiley Post Airport. We had heard from a number of our friends that it was the place to go for breakfast, especially in the weekend. We have eaten there before, and had very satisfying experiences, but not for breakfast. First, the coffee is... More

Best, most entertaining breakfast in town. Get a runway-side seat and watch the planes come and go as folks fly in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Service is good ol' cafe style with friendly owner and friendly waitresses, attentive enough without being a bother.

Runway cafe offers a hardy breakfast and burgers. Watching the small planes take off and land outside the windows makes it a unique place to share a meal.

Runway is a great, local spot to catch a nice meal. With the feel of a diner, prices are reasonable, and the food is good. Nothing can compare, however, to the floor to ceiling windows looking directly out onto the airstrip of Wiley Post Airport, among the busiest airports in the nation for private fbo and business travel. Great spot!

Runway Cafe offers a great view of the runway at Wiley Post Airport. It's in the terminal, where you're surrounded by aviation history, but offers plenty of space. There's even a separate area for private meetings or family get-togethers. The food is great! My favorite meal is brunch. Service is friendly and excellent.

We had brunch at the Runway Cafe (located at Wiley Post Airport) after church. The are well known for their omelettes which are baked in the oven which makes them a bit different - but tasty. They have a wide selection of omelettes to chose from and of course all the regular breakfast dishes. They also offer Oreo pancakes which... More
