We went to this diner for the first time as part of our anniversary celebration. At first, the waitress seated us inside the diner. It was loud, and not much of an atmosphere. So, we asked to change tables, to one on the patio, where we could watch the planes land and take off. They were a bit reluctant at first, but they chose to accommodate us and give us a table on the patio. It was MUCH better! The waitress we had was very polite and always checked up on us. The food was served in a timely manner. It was very good, too! Watching planes land and take off + great food + great company = a great experience! We hope to be back soon.

We had the grandkids with us while visiting Washington on the Brazon and other Texas landmarks. I thought the kids might enjoy a step back in time., so we lunched at the Southern Flyer Diner. The insdie was decorated in a cute 50's style, but desite it being a rather warm day, we elected to dine outside. We were seated at a table with an umbrella, and had a good time watching the planes come and go. The kids woofed down their burgers and my husband liked his sandwich. I ordered the vegetable plate , which was pretty good. I was happy to discover there was more on the menu than malts, burgers, and fries. It was crowded on the Saturday we visited, but the experience was worth the fifteen minute wait.

Great food, fun atmosphere and good service. Awesome all-American hamburger and only 25 cents for 5 plays on the jukebox!

Want to go back to the 50's? See poodle skirts and penny loafers again.
The atmosphere was fun, restaurant very clean, wait staff were super friendly, the food was typical of a 1950's restaurant. Worth the drive to this peaceful setting.

Cute 50's style dinner, & the waitresses wear poodle skirts. Yummy burgers & sandwiches! We like the sit out on the porch & watch the planes take off and land. Just know that outside seating is very popular on beautiful, weekends days
