Did the $100 hamburger at FAKD last weekend. Very quiet, but a nice outing.

More needs to be done to identify visiting pilots, maybe a visitors book or something?

When we left I asked myself, "would I be back soon?", and did not have a compulsive reason to say "yes". Just needs something more, the X factor that lures pilots back.

The restaurant was open last time I was there in September. It was quite pleasant.
