Worth a quick visit and burgers at the Sidetrack are worth the trip alone! This tavern is famous! The sweet potato fries are thick cut and awesome. When done eating, walk both sides of the street.

We always enjoy the Sidetrack and go about once a month. Their salads, sweet potato fries and hamburgers are terrific. Fun to watch the train whiz by also. Friendly staff, pleasurable place to relax and visit with friends.

Depot Town itself is a nice place with Frog Island nearby. Restaurant review: I would choose Aubree's over Sidetrack only because the "best onion rings" rating is a joke. When we ordered them and complained over the greasy mess that was served all we got was a blank look from the server and no offer of removing from the bill.... More

WONDERFUL antique shops, boutiques and restaurants. A quiet little place with lots of charm. I recommend the Sidetracked restaurant - and get the burger!!!! One of the... More

First of all, there are 2 very good places to eat! Aubrey's and Sidetrack/Frenchy's. They are across the street from each other on Cross st. next to the railroad tracks. The Sidetrack has highly rated food, especially the burgers. There are a few antique and oddity shops, and an Ice Cream Shop on Cross St. and a great natural food... More
