    This place was amazing! The atmosphere does not disappoint! You can actually sit in the plane and eat after you've sat in the cockpit. The food was good but most importantly the fries were worth coming back for! The service was great! Our server was very courteous and pleasant!

    Eat inside of a retired Cold War Air Force plane. How can you not love this place? The Airplane Restaurant has both a traditional restaurant area filled with Air Force memorabilia and a retired Boeing Stratotanker - you can choose to dine in either. Guests can climb into the cockpit, sit in the pilot and co-pilot chair, and fidget with throttles and switches while they wait for their food. The service was great. The staff were attentive, quick and friendly. The only downside to this restaurant is the food - which is good but not great. For example, the burgers only come well-done instead of offering guests a choice of cooking temperatures. Some of the dishes we ordered were closer to room temperature than freshly cooked hot. But, all the food tasted good. Dining inside a retired military plane is such a unique experience it compensates for the food. Management could really make this place a hot spot if they concentrated on improving the food quality, choice and serving temperature. While those need a bit of work, they still do an acceptable job and the Airplane Restaurant is well worth a visit.

    I love this place. I am planning on going many times here with my Christian brothers, family, friends, and anyone I know. Family friendly, portion size is just the right amount, and the history and airplane culture is amazing. From the corny parts to history, this is a place for anyone, especially for plane enthusiasts! I love airplanes and you have to dine in the plane! Popular spot for veterans and even on duty service men and women! The respect that they have for our men and women who have and are fighting for their lives for our country is awesome! This restaurant is definitely what I would say, a true American restaurant! The owner was a very nice guy, his name is Steve. Ask to talk to him for any questions you have! You have to try their Bison Burger it was sooooo juicy and tasted really good! If you are just VISITING or PASSING THROUGH Colorado, you have to go here for tourist reasons! Bring a birthday party to this spot, and all the kids will have a blast!

    What a cool place to eat. So many awesome pics and interesting things on the walls. Our waitress was the best. She was fun and did a great job. The hamburgers come well done, so be aware. The cole slaw is the creamy style and tastes good. We ate in the plane and it was very cool. The cockpit is open for pictures and checking out, which makes this place even more cool.

    Very cool spot to eat! Love it. Went her with the car club and we enjoyed it and friendly staff and cook came out and talked to us and he was from New Mexico which was awesome. So took some pics and chill and don’t mind coming back soon!
