If you are traveling near the Colorado Springs Airport, this is a GREAT place to eat. It also is worth the drive and easy to get to, for the food and experience. You can dine in a real airplane, a 1953 fully intact Boeing KC-97 tanker, or on the "ground floor." It doesn't matter if you have kids, or older adults, everyone will have a great time. The food is excellent, the service is top notch, and the atmosphere is absolutely great. We had a family get-together, so a variety of menu items were ordered, and everything was excellent. The "Airplane Restaurant" is very easy to get to, and is also close, (walking distance), to numerous hotels in the area. If you are looking for a unique place to dine, or are just hungry, this restaurant is definitely worth visiting.

My family eats here every year for my daughter's birthday. Every time our food is good, hot and flavorful. Every time the service is excellent. Not just our waitress but other staff would come by to see if everything was fine. We really should make a trip more often. My husband had the Neptune salmon, and he loved it. I had the shrimp and I was stuffed. They have a nice, simple selection. A good kid selection also.

I was with a group of 60 and we had reservations here after our visit to the National Museum of World War II Aviation only 8 minutes away. This was a perfect end to our day of Planes and history. You can even eat in the plane. The food was good and the service was great. I would recommend this place for a big group or small. They were very accomidating. Would go back.
Thanks

We sat inside of the plane and loved it! The tables are done like naval maps, and you can go and explore the cockpit in the plane while waiting for your food. The food is delicious, especially the sandwiches. Classic American fare. The servers greet you with a smile and a "thanks for flying with us today!" Great for any naval-aviation enthusiast, or anyone in the mood for some good food!

This place is absolutely unique! You can either sit and eat inside the airplane and visit the cockpit, take pictures, or eat in the building connected to it. They offer many food choices. We both got the Mushroom and Swiss Hamburgers which were homemade, big, and very delicious! The restaurant staff are dressed and speak as a flight crew. This is the second time we have been here and love it!
