I've visited many times and have never been disappointed. The service is great and the atmosphere superb. Try the buffalo burger...it really hits the spot.

Went there today to have lunch. Usually very good food but chicken was hard, buns weren't very soft. Last two times was very good with no problems. Maybe a bad day. You must visit and see the restaurant esp if you love aviation.. a must see in Colorado Springs near the airport.

I was spending the night in Colorado Springs so I took the opportunity to have dinner at The Airplane. The Airplane is a former KC-97L Air Force air refueling tanker. Seating is available both in the aircraft fuselage and in the restaurant floor. I had a fuselage table. I had the Salmon Neptune, one of their signature dishes. You can... More

Friendly staff and good food. The environment is an old airplane with lots of vintage photographs and staff dressed in flight attire. Food and drink was served quickly since it was later in the evening for most folks (about 9 pm).

Not far from COS Airport. Fun for kids of all ages Staff are dressed in flight attendant attire. We saw two families celebrating birthdays. You can leave your table and check out the cockpit. The restaurant has attached regular dining as well with lots of airplane memorabilia. Great fun

If you need something in a hurry during lunch, chances are that you're going to be disappointed. I've been here quite a few times with friends, as I work close by. They have a short menu, just a couple of pages. I've never left this place ready to tell my coworkers to visit. The servers are usually cordial, but the... More

We had been hiking on a very cold day , and loved coming into this cozy , warm airplane to eat! The chili was the best thing on a day like this. It reminded me of an old diner from decades ago yet it isn't really that old. Just a fun, unique place to eat with really pretty good food!

This place has average food at best. But the servers are amazing. I take my grandson and they treat him like a king! He always wants to go back. Suzanne in particular is fantastic.

After visiting Manitou Springs we were looking for someplace to eat that was unique, we found The Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs, which is a converted KC-97 we had a choice to eat in the aircraft or the restaurant area attached to it. Of course we ate in the aircraft. This one was originally used for refueling, the tail section.... More
