“We want Bombshells to be the ultimate experience for casual dining, sports viewing, music, and fun in Stafford,” said David Simmons, Director of Restaurant Operations. “Everything about Bombshells is big, proud, and community-friendly, with a great respect for our military, past and present.”
Bombshells are known for their red, white and blue branding; aircraft hangar like structures; military memorabilia; and uniformed Bombshells Girls, who bring to life timeless pinup models from World War II aircraft “nose art.” Locations are open 11 AM to 2 AM for lunch, happy hour, dinner, and a late night party scene with live DJs. Guests are encouraged to stay and hang out.
Bombshells offer a scratch kitchen, full bar (featuring an aircraft wing overhead), premium brands of spirits, and a selection of 20 draft beers (flowing through a unique “missile tap”). The extensive menu includes popular items such as Renegade Pasta (penne tossed in Cajun-spiced Alfredo sauce); Double D's Burger (2x the beef, cheese, and fries); Ike's 14-ounce rib eye steak; the Pin Up Girl Salad; and giant desserts, such as Fried Cheesecake and Bombshells Brownie.
The Bombshells concept was originated by Travis Reese, EVP of parent RCI, whose grandfather piloted more than 100 missions in the Berlin Airlift following WW II. Veterans and active service members of the U.S. Armed Forces receive a 20% discount on meals and soft drinks. Bombshells is community friendly and involved, often supporting local children's sports teams.
