Here at Veterans Victory we're hungry to create a place for community, service, and connection. And, sometimes we're just, well, HUNGRY!
The great news is we don't have to stray too far from our lovely site to experience the best of the best!
We’ve got you covered whether you've got a hankering for Tex Mex, greasy spoon, or something that pairs well with a Pina Colada!
Here's the hidden gems in our neck of the woods here in Colorado Springs.
The Airplane Restaurant: Okay, first and foremost, we must highlight The Airplane Restaurant. So close to VVSBC, and unlike any other dining experience!
“The Airplane Restaurant centerpiece is a fully intact Boeing KC-97 tanker. Built in 1953, this magnificent airplane refueled aircraft throughout the world. Then, in May 2002, it began its second mission~ to be the preeminent aviation restaurant in the United States. Forty-two passengers can actually eat in the plane of the 275-seat restaurant. Rich in aviation history, displaying 100's of pictures, memorabilia and rare artifacts, Solo's offers much more than great food, it offers a flight through aviation history. Treat yourself to first class and celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Flight and fly onto Solo's!”
From chicken strips, to Caesar salad, steaks, and burgers - this place has something for everyone and the kids LOVE it!
O’sae’s Restaurant: O’sae’s Japanese restaurant beats anything in the area. Noodles... sushi... poke... and fresh, fresh, fresh!
“O’sae Restaurant offers authentic and delicious tasting Japanese cuisine in Colorado Springs. Our restaurant is known for its variety in taste and choice of meals. Customers can state their personal taste preferences upon arrival and then take delight in the individualized maki, sushi, salad, and ramen creations.

Meat the Greek: Are you a true gyro connoisseur? Well, then meet me at Meat the Greek!
A family-owned business with one-of-a-kind recipes since the 1930s, these gourmet meals take you back to the beautiful country of Greece, where the Mayropoulos family started a company of olive oil and cheese. Now, we continue to share our traditional foods and culture. Everything, starting with our special sauce ingredients, are imported from Greece. Our recipes have been passed down from generations to grandmothers to daughters, sons, and grandchildren over the last 70 years.
‘Greek specialties are created for the people, as if they are coming into our home. Our family feels privileged to fulfill the taste of happiness to customers, and we will continue to share our heritage with authentic meals down the road.’”
HOT SPOT Review: “I was craving a healthy and delicious Greek salad with lemon rice, lamb/beef gyro meat, and of course fresh salad ingredients. This salad hit the spot and I will be a repeat customer.” - Gina
Charley’s: Just a little bit pub-ish – and just a little bit Mexican, Charley’s will please your palate!
“Join the party and get the Fiesta before it’s gone! Try our bold Fiesta Cheesesteak, featuring Tex-Mex seasoned steak, melty Pepper Jack cheese, jalapeños, and sautéed onions and green peppers, all on our signature toasted roll. It’s been a summer to remember.”
Whether you choose a cheesesteak sammy or a milkshake to blow your mind, your tastebuds will be wanting for more at Charley’s!
