We love going here when we get the chance. Always a friendly atmosphere! And it's fun seeing the planes right outside the window. Food is excellent and very fair prices. Highly recommend a visit to anyone

I visit here regularly and almost always have breakfast; eggs, toast, hash browns, bacon and coffee. Can’t beat it for the price and service. I do like the interior decorations with the aviation theme. Get to watch planes fly too.

We found this restaurant by accident and were very happy we did, as the food is great, plentiful and the atmosphere is very educational. All kinds of military memorabilia on the walls around the restaurant and it is at an active airport.

Best breakfast place in town. You may have to wait a little bit depending on what time you get there but it will be worth it!

I have flown into Sanford airport three times in order to eat at this restaurant. Pilots call this the "100 dollar hamburger" but it is very popular here and at other airport restaurants. During the week, the restaurant is supposed to be open until 2:00...More
