Night Out on the Town

One of the older and most well-known establishments in downtown Iowa City, The Airliner is one of the more popular places for co-eds and alums to visit.

Although the Airliner has changed hands over the years, it is still known for one thing, its pizza. Deep dish and thin crust, it doesn't matter, the pizza has been a staple of the Airliner since its inception, and its good. We should know, they are quick to deliver to Iowa Football on a Friday afternoon.

Stories abound about the popularity of the downtown restaurant. One of the better is that of Tom Brokaw hanging out there while attending Iowa. Brokaw didn't graduate from this University, but as the story goes, treated it as a second home with many of his friends he met at school.
