BRENHAM MUNICIPAL AIRPORT (11R) Dreamliner Diner “I ended up going to the Dreamliner for lunch today. Walked in and sat down at 1215. Ordered about three minutes later. By 1230 I was on my second bite of a great cheeseburger. Fries were flavorful and hot. There appears to be at least four waitresses and three working in the kitchen. Adele was expediting. By 1300, I’m done and just chillin. The inside is about 80% full and the patio is about half. Things are running great. Milkshakes are being served.” ~K. Thompson

Thanks for the update!
In March 2019, The “50’s Cafe” in Cameron (T35) appears closed for good again.

Thanks for the update, Lenny!
You can remove Carls BBQ inasmuch as Weiser is now closed (your entry is: “CYPRESS (KEYQ) Carls BBQ”)
Thanks for the update.
Rockdale KRCK has Becky’s Sandwiches just a short walk from parking. GREAT sandwiches M-F. How can I get them added?
I would add Waco and then go to downtown to the Magnolia Market, Silos Baking Company, Dr. Pepper Museum. There is also the Mammoth park but I have never been there. They have courtesy cars but Uber is also available.
Great suggestion, thanks!
KJSO Jacksonville / Cherokee County – very friendly FBO staff, cheap fuel. Get a courtesy car and enjoy Cousina Mexicana for some authentic south of the border flavor or JW’s BBQ. Either will leave you with a smile on your face.
THANKS! Will add it to the list.
