“Varied menu”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The diner is a relaxing place for a leisurely informal meal. Staff is friendly, the place is very clean.
The hamburger was generous. Unfortunately the onion rings were a big disappointment -- thin and burnt.

“Fun place at the airport”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We landed with our planes. It is a fun place to eat. Nice patio fun atmosphere.

This is a 50's style diner located at the airport in Brenham. All the waitresses are dressed in poodle skirts and there are a lot of them.

“good food and service at the airport!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is a 50's style diner located at the airport in Brenham. All the waitresses are dressed in poodle skirts and there are a lot of them. The food was good. They have burgers, and southern comfort food. Our waitress seemed miffed that we wanted to wait until after dinner to order dessert. Service was outstanding with a team of waitresses working each table.

“$100 Dollar Hamburger”
Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

In the aviation world people talk about the $100 dollar hamburger, this is not the actual cost of the burger, but what it costs to fly the plane to the airport to eat. This place is right on the airport, thus the perfect place for a $100 hamburger. But, this place is so much more! It is a diner right out of the 50's, down to the Poodle Dresses on the waitress. Great chicken fried steak, burgers, BLT's, sodas and shakes, etc. Service is very friendly. Worth the drive if you don't have an airplane. It takes about 15 minutes to get from 290 if you are driving between Houston and Austin.

“Best little burger in Texas”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Nice place, friendly waitresses, good music, beautiful airplanes.
We loved the way the waitresses dressed, good 50's,60s music, it was like a flash back to the 50s. Our waitress was Sarah and she is really a sweet girl.

We ordered cheeseburger, steak sandwich, onion rings, fries and chocolate malts, all excellent. The cheeseburger was huge as was the steak sandwich and delicious, not greasy, just great. Good onion rings, really good fries, and some of the best chocolate malts in many years. Prices are fair to this day and age. We highly recommend this place!
