Description: The Airport Diner is a classic 1940s diner, located next door to the Hangar Hotel and immediately adjacent to the Gillespie County Airport aircraft parking ramp. From the booths, you can watch aircraft come and go while enjoying great sandwiches, breakfast, and daily Blue Plate Specials. The Diner is not just a place to grab some food, but rather a unique atmosphere to relax and enjoy a good meal while reliving the past. And you never know what you might see land just outside the window.

“Lunchtime at the airport”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

A unique experience. It was fun to watch people land their planes/helicopters, come inside and eat lunch. The décor was very classic 50's diner. The service was excellent and the food was tasty. My kids had the chicken fried chicken, my wife the chicken salad sandwich and I had the local sausage sandwich. All good stuff!

“Very Unusual”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The décor was interesting. Being able to sit at a window and watch planes land and take off was a plus. The food was fresh and tasty.

“Awesome breakfast and great airplane view”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

They were hopping but the service was good and the breakfast was a great start to our day. I especially like the theme and the place is usually full of pilots.
