This is the 'Airplane' restaurant, same place. They have an old Teaxas ANG refueling plane, and my daughter loves to pretend fly it. The food is great as well, and has never disappointed in our 20+ times here. The sweet potato fries with honey are excellent!

We came in on a later flight, and were delighted with the staff and food in the bar. Popcorn kept us munching until our evening snack came. I had the strips and fries with gravy (yum), and my partner had the veggie burger (also yum). We will be back, even if we aren't flying.

My 6 year old son had been asking to go to this restaurant since we had driven passed it a month earlier. We were going to be visiting Colorado Springs over Labor Day weekend and made plans to surprise him. He could not have been more thrilled and we could not have been more thrilled with the overall experience. The... More

We enjoyed our trip to The Airplane Restaurant. The airplane itself was the highlight for my 5 year old son. He had so much fun playing in the cockpit. The food was very good. It is a fun family friendly restaurant. The service is impeccable, our server was attentive, friendly and excellent. I would agree with other reviewers that the... More

Food was overpriced and tasted very average. Nothing special at all. Only thing that makes this place unique is that it's an actual airplane.

We are a family of six with kids ranging from 3 to 16. This was an excellent experience all the way around. Very interesting decor for the teens, coloring for the little ones (they even hang their pictures while they are there and send them back to them if you give them an address). Kids had fun flying in the... More

Although the inside of the restaurant is pretty run down and needs an upgrade the food is excellent. I ate there twice on my recent trip and highly recommend the rueben sandwich and the Ahi Tuna plate. The rueben was one of the best ruebens I have ever eaten and the Ahi Tuna was cooked to perfection and very tasty.... More

We had read bad reviews and put off going to Solos for years. We went today and had a fantastic time. Food is typical--similar to somewhere like Chilli's or Applebees in price and menu, but with some surprises, like Ahi Tuna. The best part was eating in the plane--well worth the wait for my elementary age kids. They were able... More

We have eaten here twice before and had a great time but not been impressed by the food. This time was different. Everything we had, baby back ribs, salmon pasta, a piper club, and a guacamole burger. All were just perfect. As expected, the service and atmosphere were tops. There isn't a better place to take kids.
