“Great food & Great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

This little hidden gem is on the backside of the airport. The first time I went there was before they closed for the day. The menu had breakfast, burgers, sandwiches, and salads. Even though it was closing down for the day, they were readily accommodating and service was stupendous. The food was hot fresh and plentiful. I have since had breakfast there, and was filling with many choices of omelet additions. Coffee is hot and tea is served in a Txas sized glass. While waiting you can view various aircraft landing on the runway and maybe you will get a treat of military aircraft landing also. You will NOT be disappointed in the food, service, or views. Just be aware it is a small place and it can get very crowded, but so worth the wait.

“Friendly and Good Service, Watch the Airplanes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Located at the Amarillo Airport this is also a good place to watch airplanes land and take off. We went here for a Sunday Brunch with a total of 12 people. The restaurant was busy but made a good effort to seat us by rearranging tables. We were fully seated after about 15 minutes. They have a good selection of breakfast items with a variety of three egg omelets. Our food was prepared as requested and all enjoyed their food. Plenty of free parking is available.

“Amazing Breakfast Menu!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Had the Amarillo omelette plate. It was amazing. Dang, I should have taken a picture to post. It was beautiful. If you're looking for a good, big, old fashioned breakfast, this is the place! Wonderful coffee and service! Atmosphere looking out over the private jets and planes that have landed is very unique. Occasional sound, vibration and sight of a tilt rotor may also be experienced. Highly recommend for a group or for an individual looking for some solitude.

“Brilliant food, staff and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

We went to the Texas Air and Space Museum by the airport and they recommended this place. It's hidden away near the airport but is signposted so not too difficult to find. The food is basic but lovely, I had a cheese sandwich which was really nice. Hubby had a BLT which he was really impressed with. The staff were really friendly, but what makes this place great is the massive windows and eating out area right by the airfield. A must place for any plane enthusiast.

“Good food great location ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Food here is very good. Great breakfast and very good Mexican food. Love the Amarillo omelet and the ABC skillet. Best part is the location. Right next to the airstrip. Always able to watch commercial. Often able to watch military touch and go. Even saw the space shuttle once.
