FORT RUCKER, Ala. -- After undergoing about 10 months of renovations, the Fort Rucker Directorate of Family, and Morale, Welfare and Recreation put The Landing Zone back on the menu of its dining establishments on post during the facility's re-opening ceremony Jan. 14.

With its newly renovated kitchen area, the facility started 2019 off with more than 300 people ready to try out the new menu, or enjoy some of the old favorites, said Janice Erdlitz, DFMWR director of marketing.

"The kitchen renovation really allowed us to improve our workflow, thus improving our efficiency to get a great quality product out to our customers quicker," she added. "We also took a lot of time to relook at the menu options. You'll be happy to see some healthier options along with some of the LZ favorites. We also worked on keeping our pricing as an affordable dining option. We have our daily Rapid Fire Lunch Special, so if you are short on time, this is a great option to order for expedited service, it's also only $10."

Erdlitz described The Landing Zone as a family-friendly restaurant with table service and a full bar.

"We have an amazing staff providing a quality product, a great atmosphere and a very convenient to-go service. Choosing The Landing Zone is a great option for a great meal," she said. "If you didn't get a chance to stop by for lunch during the grand opening, we hope you work The Landing Zone back into your normal routine as a favorite lunch and dinner spot. We are also happy to have the Coffee Zone relocated back in the Landing Zone. If you are running late, and want to phone in a to-go order, we also have curbside parking available for your convenience."

The newly re-opened The Landing Zone joins DFMWR's other dining outlets, to please the Fort Rucker community's palate, Erdlitz added.

"Rucker Lanes offers an extensive grill menu, perfect for lunch or dinner," she said. "Divots at the golf course has great views, of the course, along with fast, friendly service and amazing food, and Mother Rucker's Sports Bar is a favorite for great burgers, sandwiches and more."
