Dinner at Flyboys Deli in Oakwood – A Review

Dinner at Flyboys Deli in Oakwood – A Review


I am all about finding new locations and local spots especially those that cater to vegetarians. I have been begging my husband to hit Flyboys for some time but he isn’t a huge fan of “deli’s” so he has been dragging his feet – until today!

The location is a hip “urban” style deli with a cool dining area, a 2nd story that serves as a rental dining/banquet/event area and a rooftop dining area. There is a small bar with a flat screen which was calling my husband’s name and a little lounge area with some Kettering History.

OVERALL, it was a GREAT VISIT! There was an appetizer, drinks, 2 sandwiches & an extra bagel for under $40. The service was top notch and even though it isn’t a full service restaurant – they acted like it was! They brought the food to us, checked on us, and even left our tap open while we ate so we could add drinks. YOU CAN EVEN GRAB SOME AWESOME COFFEE at the end of your meal! It’s a one stop shop for the night! The food was excellent. Served quickly and the staff was so nice…

Happy Customers

Just wanted to share this review of us from Trip Advisor
5 of 5 starsReviewed July 25, 2014

Here’s a very happy place.

Start with a concept that ties in to Dayton’s proudest historical achievement, the Wrigtht brothers’ invention of controlled flights, and thus connects with the extensive local air industry and major Air Force base that is the area’s largest employer. Site that facility in the upscale Oakwood shopping district. Select tasteful decor celebrating aviation. Put together a deli menu that’s solid, and provide a good level of quality.

Yes, that’s the formula for Flyboys. It’s counter-service here; order and pay, then find a seat and the staff will deliver your order to you when it’s ready (and it won’t take long). The staff is friendly and numerous–if anything, they may be over-staffed, which is a great thing for patrons–at times they seem slightly disorganized, but they always get the job done.

Seating options include indoor areas both down and upstairs, and a second-story balcony overlooking Far Hills avenue that can be quite pleasant on a nice day when there’s not too much heavy equipment operating nearby.

As for the fare, it’s solid. The coffee is good, the latte is better. Qaulity beers and wines are offered. There’s a good selection of deli sandwiches, but I was more impressed by their three-bean chili, which had an ideal balance of beef, tomato, and beans, not too spicy (tho’ there’s hot sauce on request if that’s your palate). It was available as part of the soup-n-salad lunch, and I had the “Orville” salad, a good chopped salad generous with greens, red onion, cuke, tomato, egg, bacon, and white cheese; the counter-man recommended the lime vinaigrette dressing and it was superb.

On another visit I had their cheesecake. –RAVE– The graham-cracker crust was a little dry but I don’t like that part anyway, the filling was high-quality cream cheese that left an absolutely scrumptious sweet dairy taste on the tongue, and an ideal mouth feel that was fatty but not cloying. Oh, bravissimo, Flyboys! The counter man said something about how this cheesecake was his grandma’s recipe; maybe that’s not entirely truthful but anyway it was fun.

I’ve been to delis in Manhattan, the mecca of the form. This spot is at their level.”

Dayton Local Article written about Flyboy’s

Flyboy’s Bring A Little Taste of New York Cuisine to Dayton

The new deli specializes in soups, salads and sandwiches, so I had to sample what they offer. The classic deli favorite, the Reuben sandwich, apparently tops the menu in popularity and I had to give “The Liberty” Reuben a try. It’s spectacular. The corned beef is texturally perfect, it’s tender and piled high.
