Last October, the 57th Fighter Group restaurant opened its doors again at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in Atlanta.
The restaurant, designed to look like a European farmhouse damaged during World War II bombing, is located on the southern end of the airport’s runway
and offers patrons a clear view of activity on the runway from the dining room, lounge or patio. Diners can listen to tower communications using headsets available inside the restaurant. Pat Epps, president of FBO Epps Aviation, took on the challenge of reopening the restaurant.
The FBO also will shuttle customers to the restaurant, and those who don’t have time for a sit-down meal can order 57th Fighter Group catering, including the signature beer cheese soup. “The return of the 57th Fighter Group restaurant
will bring a much-needed entertainment component to DeKalb-Peachtree Airport,” Epps said.
