“Don't Miss This Diner!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Jack and Janet met us at the door. Best hamburger, fries, onion rings, and strawberry shake ever! We sat out on the screened in patio with evaporator coolers overlooking a small lake. Macy brought our water out before the strawberry shakes but due to the July weather the ice melted in our water, she brought out more ice. Don’t miss this diner when in Brenham, a real relaxing atmosphere, while watching the small planes take off.

“Great Food and a fun stop”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We visited with 2 six-year olds. They loved seeing the small airplanes on the ground and seeing them take off and land. The food was really good (try the catfish sandwich). Even the kids commented later about how much they enjoyed the food. Our granddaughter was singing along with the music on the juke box (3 songs for a quarter), much to our surprise, as it was all 50s songs. Turns out that is what they use for tap and ballet classes these days.

The waitresses in poodle skirts could not have been more helpful or attentive, and the food came really quickly.

Not to be missed if you visit Brenham.

“Cool place to eat”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

You pull into a small plane airport and you walk inside to a 50's cafe. Great burgers...yummy salads and blue bell shacks

“Cool place to fly for lunch.”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

A 50's style diner. Its pretty cool in there and the food is excellent. I had the hamburger and fries with tea but also tried the root beer float. The place was hopping and we when walked outside there were people waiting to get inside. I think we went on a Sunday, so the church crowd made their way there after church. I highly recommend the place. I will definately be back.
