Casual food in a unique atmostphere

Unique, relaxed experience eating in a train car. Great hot dogs, good chili fries. Would like to try a burger next time. Friendly service. Alcohol served. Open all day. Plenty of space.

Nicer burger and lovely sweet potato fries. This is in a great location and we regularly used it as a meeting point. It is a little small inside but has plenty of outside seating. its worth a visit if your down sunset.

No matter what time you go, there will most likely be a line. However long the line, it moves quickly and the wait is worth it. Good standard food, burgers, hot dogs and the like, with a few nice healthy alternatives available too. All the food is fresh and tasty; I particularly like the Red Hot, split and grilled with...

Food was very basic with various fast food choices although sitting in an old railway carriage was fun.

Ate here twice during our week stay. Had the chilli cheese hotdog the first time which was good. The second time I had the chilli burger which was excellent! An added bonus, ate lunch next to David Beckham!!!!!!

We didn't expect too much, but based on the recommendations were hoping for better. Cold, untidy place with zero atmosphere, unless you like trash cans, that is. Went for a chile cheese burger.

Our 12 year old daughter loved it, the photos on the wall are fantastic and you can just sit back and watch the Sunset strip world pass you by through the window...... plus the fries aren't bad either.
