Airport Restaurants in Texas

TxDOT Wingtips Newsletter listing of Texas Restaurants

Brenham (11R) - The Southern Flyer Diner - A fifties diner at the Brenham airport. Burgers, chicken fried steak, catfish, etc. They claim everything made from scratch except french fries and Blue Bell ice cream. Great shakes!
Southern Flyer Diner
Airnav.com link for 11R

Llano (AQO) - Fly to LLano and take one of the retired police cruisers provided by the city to Coopers BBQ. Great pit BBQ. Coopers has become such a flying destination that I heard the city tried to acquire "BBQ" as the airport's identifier, but was not successful.

Stephenville (SEP) - Fly to Stephenville and take one of the three golf carts at the airport provided by the Hard Eight for a short cart ride down to the Hard Eight. Great pit BBQ - especially if you like a sweet BBQ sauce. If you take one of the carts, park it at the designated parking area on the airport side of the highway (don't cross the main highway) as Texas DPS will ticket!

Woodville (O9R) - Call ahead and the folks from the Pickett House will pick you up from the airport. Great home cooking served family style.

Port Aransas (KRAS). The free trolley makes hourly runs and gets to the airport about 15 minutes before the hour and there is a taxi too. More good restaurants than you can count and the beach is a very short walk. There is also a new management restaurant a couple of hundred yards away in the Marina next to the airport.
