Flyboys Restaurant

I would like to leave some comments on Flyboys restaurant at Mansfield Lahm (KMFD). I have always stopped in to KMFD on my travels to take a break, and I really enjoy the airport there. The Flyboys restaurant is without a doubt my favorite place to stop and eat. Heck I made a special trip one night and got weathered in. The employees in this place work really hard, and provide a great meal and great service. It is a family owned place and the owners and their children also help out. They are a riot and I always leave them a small tip as well. They are extremely friendly and whenever we walk in always ask "Where did you fly in from". It's kind of like the "Cheers" of flying. Anyway, I am sure, like other businesses, this place is also feeling the effects of our crappy economy, so I am asking all of you to help these guys out and fly in and have a great meal and conversation. I was there a week ago and heard that Flyboys is for sale. The owner is a military member from across the street at the guard base and his new position requires him to travel quite frequently, and is due to be deployed soon. It's very difficult to run a business from a distance, and I am sure even more difficult to run while still serving in the military. So, if anyone is interested in an already established business with the benefits of being on an airport, contact the manager Vickie or Kay at Flyboys and they can put you in contact with the owner. Thanks for your time. Be safe.

We took the family on a flight to eat at Flyboys Cafe. This is a great find. We arrived about 5:30 p.m., and the staff was eager to serve us. The place is very clean, and the staff is very friendly. Our server, Kay, provided exceptional service to us. The food was great. Their as they say, "soon to be famous" Flyboy Burger is the best meal I have had in a long time. By the way, you have to try their dessert called Bananas Foster. It is tops. Great place, and we all highly recommend it to all!

We flew in there for breakfast on Saturday, the 17th of November. We got the pleasure to see a US Navy F-18 take off. It came into the guard base the night before. Also, the staff at Flyboys was ready for the Ohio State V.S. Michigan game. These guys really good breakfasts. Well worth the trip.

We flew in for Flyboys Oktoberfest last Saturday (October 13th). It was great. They had their local bratwurst, german potato salad, pickled beets, and to top it off, they had Black Forrest cake. It was one great meal, and along with that, they had some great beers, that you normally wouldnt' find in the chain restaurants. They were quite busy, as it was guard drill weekend, but the staff kept up with the crowd. I must add, I had a couple of conversations with some of the Air National guard men and women, and let me tell you, it makes us sleep better at night to know how proud these men and women are of their unit, and their country. So, stop in, and show your apprciation to the men and women in uniform, and buy them a beer, and say thanks. We did and will do it again!

re: Flyboys Cafe

I was agree! I was at Mansfield for a business meeting, and stopped in waiting for my plane. THe bratwurst they have is absolutely the best I have ever had. They also have a good selection of seasonal beers, which the Spiced Wheat was my favorite. I also got to see two C-130's perform an airdrop mission on the airport. I must agree with another post and say it's "pretty cool".

It opened on 3 August 2007. They have a nice clean place, with great views of the airport. They also have good food. They have what they call a Flyboy Burger, it's great. They also have local made bratwurst, home backed buns, and fresh cut fries. They just received their liquor license about a week ago also. This place is if I may say "pretty cool", as there is all types of aviation action from military (C-130 and KC-135), corporate jets in and out, lots of general aviation, and I even saw a couple of cargo jet's in there (USA Jet, DC-9).

I was just at the terminal yesterday and there was a handwritten sign on the door saying that they hoped to be open by July 30th.

Flying Turtle

The Flying Turtle closed, alas. There were plans to open a new restaurant in the same spot (named "Flyboys Care") but I don't know if it has opened yet. End of July was what I'd heard, so it might be open now.

I flew into Mansfield in January or February specifically to have lunch and the restaurant had closed its doors the day before! I had a Twix from the FBO vending machine.

Flying Turtle Restaurant on-field.

One of my favorite $100 hamburger trips. Good restaurant (popular with locals,) and home to an ANG base. You can usually see some big KC-130s and occasionally something a bit faster out on the tarmac.
