Featured Fun Place to FLY! AQ Chicken House, Springdale, AR
"The best fried chicken in the state! Choice of Pan Fried, Over-the-Coals my favorite, or BBQ. They also serve some of the best ribs, catfish, and chicken fried steak around. Never had anything on their menu that wasn't great. Portions should satisfy anyone's hunger. I always leave with a to-go box. AQ Chicken is located only about 2.5 miles from KASG Springfield Muni, so if you can't get the shuttle, there's always a taxi. Go to the AQ Chicken House website and check out their menu. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed." - Submitted by David Monroe.

Featured Fun Place to FLY! The City of Allegan, Allegan, MI
"We decided to visit Allegan, Michigan after watching a TV episode titled Steak Paradise on the Travel Channel. Among the several restaurants featured was the Grill House which has a grill room where you can pick your steak right from the meat cooler and grill it yourself. It looked like it would be a fun place and we put a visit on our to-do list. Built in 1836, the steakhouse was then a lumber company headquarters and bunk house. Today folks come from all over to visit the now famous restaurant and for good reason. We had a wonderful time and an awesome meal that included grilled filet mignon cooked to perfection by the staff. Fly-in guests are always welcome and owner Marcia's son-in-law loves to talk about flying. I would recommend giving them a day or two notice so they can make arrangements to meet you at the airport or your inn. Now because I am a fan of craft beers, and the Grill House serves New Holland Brewing products oatmeal stout...yum we knew we needed a place to stay. The DeLano Mansion Inn answered our inquiry for a room with an email letting us know that, although they had been full, a no-show had created a vacancy and assured us an airport pick-up would be no problem. Innkeepers/owners Marcia and Kent Neigebauer were fabulous hosts with Kent meeting us at the airport holding a small sign with our names and DeLano Inn. Chuckling he told us I always wanted to do that. The inn, like the restaurant, was built in the mid 1800's. Stepping through the door you are stepping into a time warp where Lincoln is still the president. Immaculately furnished in period decor, if not for the electric lights and air conditioning you may believe you have actually time traveled. Set out at our arrival was a homemade shrimp dip, crackers and lemonade that was very tasty and welcome after our flight. Breakfast the following morning featured a delicious Amish Breakfast Bake along with maple sausage, fruit, coffee, juices, and a baked peach that was just wonderful. Hats off to both establishments and their staffs. We were made to feel welcome and were accommodated in every way. Visit the web sites http://www.delanoinn.com/ and http://grillhouse.net/ for more information." - Submitted by George.
