Very Busy, Plan to wait for 45- 60 minutes. Good food. Servers are always running and need to take more time with their guests!

So many things on the menu that I wanted to try. I tried the ribs, they were great. My son got the chicken finger platter, best chicken fingers, we've ever had! Our server was great, even though she was very busy. We will go back!

From Our Editors

Planes zoom down the runway just steps away from Pilot Pete's Restaurant & Bar, located inside the terminal at Schaumburg Regional Airport. When the mood is right, diners might almost imagine that Pete is in the cockpit himself, zipping off on an early-morning flight to an exotic locale. The eatery's tropical-themed walls and decor give a taste of his worldly travels: propellers, wooden parrots, and palm trees from his private collection of memorabilia showcase airborne voyages to more than 25 countries. A glance up to the corrugated-tin ceiling reveals a life-size, two-seater aircraft that looks like something that the Wright Brothers might have flown?or that the Marx Brothers might have crashed.

The cocktail list and menu transport diners to both domestic and international destinations. Chefs plate Caribbean-inspired dishes, such as a chopped cobb salad with jamaican jerk chicken, and American classics. The restaurant has been a popular spot with professional and amateur flight aficionados for more than a decade. Children can pretend to navigate in roomy, blue-velvet airliner seats, watch the runway, and respond to plane-engine sounds by reflexively opening their mouths for spoons. Pilot pete's has been honored by the "100.00 Hamburger club", named after pilots who would fly great distances to eat at their favorite local airport restaurants.
