Nice visit

Never even knew it existed! Right beside the train tracks down from the coffee house on other side of the tracks. Large portion sizes so come hungry! Flavorful pastas, excellent steak-spicy cause it was the Mexican ribeye special. Pleasant, quick service. Nice atmosphere. Would come again :-)

This was my first visit to the Trackside Grill. In my assessment it is a small-town college grill with a sports orientation, average-quality food and ample portions. The men's bathroom reeked of urine so much that if I went before ordering I might not have stayed to eat. The service was attentive for what appeared to be part-time college jobs.... More

Here for dinner with family. It was second visit for dinner. The pulled pork sandwich was really good--had a nice smoky flavor to it with crispy bits of pork. I had the pasta salad I had along with was not great though; I would have passed on this. We had nachos as an app, and there was a generous serving.... More

Visited with the family in the area. We had lunch and the food was excellent. The restaurant was crowed but seating was easily available. Service was very prompt given the number of people present. We parked across the street (and train tracks). There are pedestrian crossing points in the middle of the block for crossing the tracks. Be careful to... More

We visited Trackside with another couple and their grown daughter. The service was good and the food was decent. Parking would be a challenge if I didn't grow up nearby. The biggest complaint was the noise level was a tad high but not unbearable by any means. We would eat at Trackside again if in Ashland at dinner time. I... More

I have eaten here 3 times. The first time, there was more grizzle in the corned beef than beef. The second time, the fried shrimp were taking a swim in the juice from the green beans. The third I got the burger sliders, and those were very good.

If you are a fan of trains come here. The Amtrak runs by quite often. We had asked for some veggies that were not on the menu and they came through. Parking is next door. This was our second time here. Will return

Neat little place right on the railroad tracks in Ashland, Va. Interesting fact is the name does not come from the railroad it comes from the love of horse racing, according to the little bio on the menu. This is supported by the multitude of horse racing items hanging on the walls. This is not a fancy place but it... More
