We wanted to get away from the crowds of downtown Fredericksburg so thought we would try the Airport Diner. Good choice! The diner is immaculate. Clean and shiny, very well appointed booths and counters. Service was maybe a tad slow, but maybe that is just "their way". The food was good and served in an attractive way. Highly recommend it.

What a fun place to just drop into for an unplanned Mother's Day lunch. Good service, good malts, and a great view.

The Airport Diner is modeled like an old-fashioned diner with booths along the windows and counter stools. Service was good, food prices reasonable, and good quality dishes.

We have enjoyed breakfast and lunch at this venue on two separate occasions. The diner looks out over the busy Fredericksburg Airfield, which is most entertaining with planes landing and departing every few minutes keeping diners enthralled. The food and service are both excellent. Although this venue is "off the tourist path", it is well worth the drive.

Tried this after reading all the good reviews. Really cute place but food was not good. Biscuits and potatoes were cold. Eggs "cooked to order" were certainly not what was ordered. Omelet was ok. Toast was cold.

My husband and I loved having lunch at the diner. It was right at the airport and we got to see a few small planes come and go while we were eating. There was even a bi-plane there that was giving rides. The staff at the dinner were pleasant and attentive. Food was great.

Recently headed to Fredericksburg to check out the Hangar Hotel which was featured on a local TX travel show. The hotel is at a small airstrip and very unique and quaint. Next door is the diner style establishment of the Airport Diner. Done up like a Northeast old style diner (I know, I'm originally a CT native). The food was... More

Motif fits right into the Hangar Inn and the food is very good. Really enjoyed eating and watching the planes take off and land.

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.
