We went to eat lunch there. Very interesting place as it is at the airport. It is set up like a 50's dinner. Waitress in poodle skirts. Food is okay for basic food. Burgers, fries. A bit on the expensive side but a fun place to eat.

The food is good for casual fare. It is an experience rather than just a meal. The airport is fun. The waitresses and the decor is great. You can watch the planes come in and take off.

Back to days when poodle skirts and fries & shakes kept us content. Comfy food, large selection of options, flavorful fare. Spend a pleasant afternoon watching aircraft come in and take off. Large area to walk about, sit and enjoy good conversation.

Solid food offerings. Diner offerings burgers chicken fried steak meat loaf. Malts and float are a great add-on . Located in small airport so kids of all ages will be entertained

Poodle skirts, Bobby socks, saddle Oxfords and great food. This little place is at the Brenham Municipal Airport of all place which is several miles from downtown Brenham.

We had a fairytale afternoon at the Southern Flyer Diner! We will surely be back! We loved our sweet waitress who was dressed in an adorable poodle skirt. Our food was delicious and came in a timely manner. Our grandparents had as much fun as the kids!!! Absolutely Worth the drive from Houston!!!

Excellent Food, fast and friendly service, with a 1950's flair. What's not to like? Best Burgers in town! big and juicy, fresh made. Delicious!! no trip to Brenham is complete without a stop at the Airport Cafe the "Southern Flyer". Best Milk Shakes too!
