Beautiful airport and surrounding area view. New terminal a block away. Perfect SLO weather. Experimental Aircraft Association had a Ford Tri-Motor fly in. Place was pretty packed. Food terrific. Service, good considering. Moving up to level four as aTripadvisor Reviewer. Maybe I'll get epaulets.

This airport restaurant has been consistently good for over a decade. (It was sold a few years ago, but the menu and quality are unchanged.) The sandwiches are the main draw, although the "lite fare" quesadilla appetizer is a meal in itself (and one of...More
