Brian and I got to celebrate with Cory and his family on Saturday night at Hangar One. It was Brian’s first time there and only my second. I had gone to lunch there with my boss and coworkers a few years ago. We had to wait a while for our food, but understandably so since we had a pretty large group. As for the food, it was just okay. If the food would have lived up to the awesome flight-themed decor, the restaurant would have received higher marks.
At least we had great company. We had a great time celebrating Cory’s birthday. Brian and I sat across the table from Christy and her kids. The boys were hilarious on Saturday night. Ella was pretty quiet and well-behaved.
Marshall and his zingers were quite amusing. We were talking about the cockpit on the wall next to our table and how it’s supposed to be Amelia Earhart‘s plane. Marshall informed us that it was a replica and not the actual plane itself. It couldn’t possibly be the real plane because they never found it. He said that if they would have found her plane then they would have found her body. Therefore, he concluded that the plane cockpit at the restaurant was only a replica.
Evan was pretty funny that night also. When our server brought out a slice of cake for the birthday celebrant and some extra forks Evan was like, “Alright! Let’s get this party started!” His enthusiasm for dessert was cute. LOL.

Brian and I weren’t very hungry so we just split some chicken fingers and steak bites. The chicken fingers and fries didn’t have much flavor. The steak bites, on the other hand, had too much flavor. It was covered with sauce that was very overpowering. Had I known this ahead of time, I would have asked for the sauce on the side.
The steak bites tasted about as good as they looked. LOL.
This is Jay’s burger. I kind of wish I would have gotten one of these instead. It looked much more appetizing than the dishes we ordered.
This is a picture of the dessert tray that got Evan really pumped. LOL.
Overall Brian wasn’t a fan of the restaurant. The place is kind of neat. I liked the cozy ambience and the decorations. I also loved that the restaurant pays homage to Wichita’s past. However, the food was a kind of a let down. Still, we were both really grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Cory’s birthday. Happy belated birthday, Cory!
