Loved the way it was decorated, but the food left a lot to be desired. Service was good. My husband had the cheeseburger and it was average and disappointing. My sandwich was okay. The sweet potato fries were good. Left there feeling unimpressed.More

What a fun restaurant for breakfast! This 1940s retro dinner on the flight line of the county airport is a great solo, couples or family offers a relaxed atmosphere.The food is fresh, plentiful and arrives hot and quickly.

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.
