...by far my most favourite place in the world! Ideal stopping place for a break, leg stretch and meal for that loooooong journey to Las Vegas or California. McDonalds is my favourite place because of their clever idea to use old train carriages as a seating area, pure genus idea for an old train station. I want to live in... More

Stopped here to grab a quick meal at the McDonalds. The place was hot, loud, and weird. We couldn't wait to get out. The McDonalds was one of the worst we have ever eaten at (and probably the last). We paid way too much for a cheep, nasty food we ate in a tin can!

Boy howdy, what CAN'T you get in here? Food from any of several types, souvenirs of all types, ALWAYS busy.. a great place to be as long as you don't mind crowds. VERY hot in the summer months though..the area, that is. Don't let that stop you though.. there are plenty of cold drinks to be had

We ate at TOms, "food was great". Had a Chili burger with fries and a drink, greasy delicious and my friend had the Chili Cheese Fries that looked to die for. There is so many places to choose and pick from to eat , Panda Express, Subways, McDonalds, Starbucks, Toms, and much more. This place is amazing for the kids... More

An interesting collection of memorabilia. Well laid out. Welcoming volunteer staff. Worth a visit. The building and trains outside are interesting as well.

We stopped by for dinner and bought food at Panda Express. The place has always been crowded, but this time crowds were small, they have no seating! All of the train cars were closed. The limited seating at the end near Subway was filled and a weird man (transient?) made comments to my young daughter. We ended up eating in... More

We have been passing through here since around the mid-seventies and I never get tired of it. It is an interesting building made out of railroad cars and part standard structure. It houses numerous souvenir and collectible shops as well as a store and McDonalds. It is the perfect pit stop for all necessities before journeying across the sea of... More
