Best/favorite FBO you've been to

Did you lock the doors?

Favorite is any FBO that has a beautiful women (or man) hand me an ice cream sandwich when I walk in.
Worst is Signature in PDK. Slow, can't seem to fill a request and unrepentant after screwing something up. Last time I was in, wasn't met by a ramper, again, so I nosed up to the front door and let them sort it out later.
So which FBO has the best crew cars? Anybody been to RDU and get the dodge with a hemi? It kills.

Signature at RST is pretty nice, as is TAC Air at SLC.

Any FBO that "lets" me park the plane myself only to have them complain at me that I parked in a bad place. "Ok sailor, brakes are off and prop is tied, you know what to do."

Beaver Lake Aviation at ROG
just because it's funny to watch your airplane get a top off from a truck that says Walmart on the side
Conoco Philips in BVO, because they just gave us a crew car/Philips fleet vehicle Taurus for the entire 3 week stay for free

I miss the podunk FBOs we'd hit flight instructing in the Texas/Louisiana/Arkansas area. You know, where if it wasn't self-serve with 1200 or the CTAF as the code to get into the building, it was run by some old coot in overalls with more chins than teeth and a mangy dog that couldn't be assed to do more than roll an eye at you in the swampy southern heat.

I always looked forward to the pretzels at Atlantic FBO at PHL. Many times it was a quick turn and they were my lunch.

There is a tiny hut FBO at Ardmore, OK. The hut is air conditioned, there's a comfy couch, clean shower and restroom, fridge with snacks and drinks, microwave and a shelf with a selection of engine oils, computer with internet connection and the fuel is substantially cheaper than the other FBO.
It is due to the other FBO, I was told, this place has the name that it does

Thats awesome. Can't wait to pull up and buy 4500lbs of fuel! Hope I don't have to leave the money in the coffee can though.
