The Cleveland staple, Airport Grocery got its start during the Great Depression when Italian immigrant Joseph Rocconi opened Rocconi and Sons and sold cheap food to nearby families, friends, neighbors, and plantation workers. As business grew, Rocconi moved his small grocery store near the airport and the name Airport Grocery stuck. The family had a long history of serving delicious but affordable food and did so for many decades. Today, Airport Grocery continues many of the traditions started by the Rocconi’s including the down-home feel! Even though they have moved on from the farm lunches previously served in this building, their barbecue, hamburgers, steak, seafood and more bring in hungry guests from all over the delta. The delicious food and fun atmosphere will have families visiting regularly for years to come!
