"Flyboys Cafe" (Mansfield Lahm Regional Airport):
I was just at the terminal yesterday and there was a handwritten sign on the door saying that they hoped to be open by July 30th.
It opened on 3 August 2007. They have a nice clean place, with great views of the airport. They also have good food. They have what they call a Flyboy Burger, it's great. They also have local made bratwurst, home backed buns, and fresh cut fries. They just received their liquor license about a week ago also. This place is if I may say "pretty cool", as there is all types of aviation action from military (C-130 and KC-135), corporate jets in and out, lots of general aviation, and I even saw a couple of cargo jet's in there (USA Jet, DC-9).
I was agree! I was at Mansfield for a business meeting, and stopped in waiting for my plane. THe bratwurst they have is absolutely the best I have ever had. They also have a good selection of seasonal beers, which the Spiced Wheat was my favorite. I also got to see two C-130's perform an airdrop mission on the airport. I must agree with another post and say it's "pretty cool".
We flew in for Flyboys Oktoberfest last Saturday (October 13th). It was great. They had their local bratwurst, german potato salad, pickled beets, and to top it off, they had Black Forrest cake. It was one great meal, and along with that, they had some great beers, that you normally wouldnt' find in the chain restaurants. They were quite busy, as it was guard drill weekend, but the staff kept up with the crowd. I must add, I had a couple of conversations with some of the Air National guard men and women, and let me tell you, it makes us sleep better at night to know how proud these men and women are of their unit, and their country. So, stop in, and show your apprciation to the men and women in uniform, and buy them a beer, and say thanks. We did and will do it again!
