Route 56 Grill

Looking for a new dining experience on base besides your usual haunts? Why not try the newly remodeled Route 56 Grill at Thunderbolt Lanes. You can order anything from the “Big Lebowski” (double-sized breakfast burrito) to the half-pound grilled Texas beef melt for under $6. Route 56 Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

At Route 56 Grill, you can build an omelette, burger or pizza with an array of toppings to choose from to satisfy the craving for the day. Bacon chicken ranch and meat-lovers pizzas are two of the specialty pizzas that can be ordered.

The few times we have been to the grill we have not been disappointed. Whether you are eating in or taking out, the service has been quick, easy and affordable. So if you are looking for a quick, tasty bite to eat, try Route 56 Grill.

Advise Airmen of rights before asking questions

Every day supervisors are faced with challenging scenarios and situations that require them to engage in efforts to help their Airmen. When this engagement is due to a negative act such as theft, damage to property or other possible legal violations, we must resist the instinct to question them directly.

Fly Over: ‘Angry Crab’ and Macronutrients: A way of eating healthy

‘Angry Crab’ Every now and then I get a craving for real seafood. I’m not talking about the type of seafood served filleted, breaded and drenched in fancy French nouveau-style sauce. I’m talking about unadultera...
 
 

Innovative followership, leadership

Innovate, innovate, innovate. We hear this all the time in today’s leaner military. It’s a rather catchy word and sounds very impressive. However, innovation has to begin somewhere. Can followers innovate? Can leaders innovate? I submit the answer to both questions is a resounding “yes.” Unfortunately, one thing that keeps us from challenging the status...
