Barnstormer's Grill at the Peachstate Aerodrome, Williamson, GA. About 30 mi. south of ATL. The old Peachstate Gliderport is being developed as an airpark for antique airplanes, complete with a restoration shop, plans for a museum, and the resturant. Nice place to see some really old airplanes.

Hijackers Restaurant at KXFL (formerly X47) Flagler County Airport, Florida between Daytona and St Augustine is probably the liveliest airport restaurant I've ever been to. On two different occassions, I've spent a week at KXFL for upgrade training and have eaten at Hijackers every day and sometimes twice/day. Good food (cold beer when you're done flying) and nice island-style atmosphere.

If the rest of the airport was on par, it would be a great stop. It's an excellent airport but is run by the county and it shows in the employees' bad attitude at the FBO. Plus fuel prices are higher than KOMN - Ormond Beach Municipal Airport (11 nm SE).

Stop at Flagler for lunch or dinner and fill up at KOMN. That's what the locals do. No need to feel any obligation to fill up at Flagler, they don't act like they even want your business, IM(not so)HO.

Stanton BBQ Bennettsville, SC

This place is a pilots dream. You won't find it on a sectional but once your in the area ask the controller for vectors to the place and they'll get you there. 2900 private grass strip, land, walk across the street and prepare yourself for some of the best pulled pork bbq you'll find (IMHO). Cheap too I want to say I had two bbq sandwhiches fries and unlimited sweet tea for less than $10. They're only open thurs, fri, sat, sun and they have some weird hours. You can find info on the net about them and they used to have a website but it's been down for some time now. Really this place is a great place I rented a plane and took three co workers down there from FAY. We split the plane came out to a total of around $65 per including lunch.

They do have a myspace page with they're menu and some pics of the place

If you like good old southern hospitality and great pulled pork bbq this is the place guys. They are also a fish camp but I haven't tried their fish yet.
Respectfully,
Mark

From The Tampa Tribune:


PAPPY'S GRILL

Winter Haven Municipal Airport at Gilbert Field

2703 W. Highway 92, Winter Haven

(863) 268-8240

Hours: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily

Spacious and bright with lots of windows to see planes on the Tarmac, Pappy's is like a hangar where you can park your taste buds.

The restaurant, which opened just within the last few months inside the Aspen ski lodge-looking Winter Haven Municipal Airport, offers a quirky menu with lots of belly-filling dishes.

Consider the "Bomber" breakfast: three eggs, a slab of country ham, three strips of bacon, three sausage patties, two house-made fresh biscuits and a bowl of sausage bacon gravy for $8.85. (A word of warning: You may need to be airlifted if you finish it all.)

Not enough food? Peruse the six-item "Bucket List," dishes that actually are served in buckets. We'd describe The Slop Bucket, but it would only make you hungry.

Aviation-themed food: The Crop Duster hamburger with bacon, fried jalapenos, onions and Florida BBQ Co. sauce ($5.75). And the ominously named Hindenburg 12-inch hot dog served in a hoagie roll. ($4.75)


EARHART'S RUNWAY GRILL

Lakeland Linder Regional Airport

3900 Emerson Drive, Lakeland

(863) 937-8900

Hours: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday and Tuesday; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday to Friday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday

http://www.earhartsrunwaygrill.com

Owners David and Romina Layman's restaurant, perched not far from the main runway, is themed around pioneering female aviator Amelia Earhart.

The story goes that David's great grandfather, David T., was the one who recruited Earhart for the first female transatlantic flight. The aviatrix then became a family friend. Framed handwritten notes from Earhart are displayed on restaurant walls.

History drips from the place. A marker in the parking lot tells of the deployment to the former Drane Field of the 320th Bombardment Group flying B-26 medium-range bombers during World War II. A replica World War I biplane dangles over the terminal's atrium.

And if that isn't enough for propeller geeks, each booth along the expansive window inside Earhart's has headphones for listening to the airport's control tower.

Aviation-themed food: Earhart's Chef Salad, ($10.95); Flyin' Solo Burger ($7.95); The Tower Burger ($9.95); Amelia's Chicken Sandwich ($8.95)


RUNWAY 9/27 AIR BASE BISTRO

Bartow Municipal Airport

5001 Highway 17 N., Bartow

(863)∙288-8418

Hours: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday to Wednesday; 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday to Saturday

http://www.runway927.net

Walking through the airport's lobby is like a stroll through an aviation history museum with sweeping murals, airplane models and a plethora of memorabilia from Bartow Municipal Airport's early days as Bartow Army Air Field. Of particular pride is that pilots Karol J. Bobko, Edward H. White and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin all went on to become astronauts after their service there.

Runway 9/27 bistro is exactly what the name implies, a cozy eatery featuring "southern comfort food" on the edge of the main runway. It's a common occurrence to be dining as one or more small planes taxi and park next to the restaurant's windows.

For the thrill-seekers at your table, try the Ed White sandwich: Ham, turkey, Swiss and American cheeses between three pieces of bread, rolled in egg wash, dipped in crumbs and fried until golden brown, then topped with powdered sugar and served with raspberry sauce and fries ($10.50).

Aviation-themed food: The Full-Throttles Salads ($3.99 to $7.95); Flightline Favorites are specials that change daily; Piper Cubs (kids' menu dishes)


THE HANGAR RESTAURANT & FLIGHT LOUNGE

540 First St. S.E., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

(727) 823-7767

http://thehangarstpete.com/

Hours: Open Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. for breakfast; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for lunch; 4 to 10 p.m. for dinner. Sunday breakfast service lasts until noon and closes at 8 p.m.

St. Petersburg's waterfront downtown is full of dining options. How to stand out?

Putting a restaurant at Albert Whitted Airport is one way. Building it with a birds-eye view of the runway and within walking distance of the Dali Museum is another.

Opened two years ago, The Hangar is downtown restaurateur Steve Westphal's most ambitious effort when you consider its distance away from the hungry foot traffic of Beach Drive.

But this one has what the others do not: Great views of Albert Whitted's busy air field and the U.S. Coast Guard Station's rescue helicopters. For full effect, sit on the porch during lunch. It won't take long for conversations to drown in the noise of propellers. You may even get a makeshift air show as pilots fly close to the deck at high speed.

Aviation-themed food: Luggage Belt Sandwich, applewood smoked bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato on seven grain bread ($6); "The Hangar Hamburger" with caramelized onion, bacon jam and melted brie ($10); Aviator chicken wings ($8).
