This absolutely beautiful Airport Diner is again a "one of a kind"
creation built after considerable research into the Diners of old. Lots of stainless,
terrazzo floors, black granite counters and booth tops, all provide comfortable
relaxing dining on old time diner favorites.
The Airport Diner is a classic 1940's 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
airplanes and other aircraft come and go while enjoying great sandwiches,
breakfast all day, and the daily Chef's 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.
after the railcar diners of old in the northeastern states, the Airport Diner
features a curved ceiling of birch trimmed in mahogany. Bright stainless
abounds on the walls, as wells as the equipment and fixtures. The floors
are done in the lost art of terrazzo, which consists of the grinding and
polishing of granite particles. All counter-tops are black granite with
soda fountain stools and booth seating are done in matching comfortable mahogany
colored fabric. Original aviation art by Lance Von Prum, decorates
the walls. Large windows allow ample viewing of the aircraft parked
adjacent to the diner or to arriving and departing aircraft on the main runway.
great staff is available to serve you. The staff is either young students
working their way through college or a young parent raising young
children. Return guests look forward to visiting with the staff to see
what adventures have occurred in their lives since their last stop. These
bright young servers will have fun with you, if you don't watch out.
Breakfast and lunch hours can be very busy, but they will usually wear big
smiles such as these.
The Diner serves homemade biscuits, sausage gravy, eggs, pancakes, Belgium
waffles, home fried potatoes, sausage, bacon and ham all day long. In
addition, salads, BLT, club, chicken, hot roast beef or turkey sandwiches are
served. Bomber Burgers are also favorites. A fine selection of healthy
salads are also available for your choosing. A full line of delicious ice
cream and desserts are featured. These include malts/shakes in stainless
containers, along with floats, sundaes, banana splits, peach cobblers, brownies,
etc. And don't forget the hand-battered Diner Onion Rings. Kid's menu selections include, Rosie the Riveter Grilled
Cheese Sandwich with Chips, Kamikaze Dogs with Chips, Patton's P B & J Sandwich
with Chips, Nimitz Chicken Nuggets with
French Fries. Ask your server about daily Blue Plate Specials.
