Cute local theme restaurant

Good stop for lunch on route 101. Seems to be popular with the locals. Nice little patio with funky railroad decor. Good food at a good price. We ate the French dip and a salad. Pleasant staff.

My wife and I ate here for lunch on a road trip up north. I had a delicious meatball sandwich and her chicken pesto sandwich was also very good. It was lucky we got there a little before noon (Wednesday) because there weren't many seats available by 12:15. Great little busy lunch spot.

Good menu and nice people. Good, friendly service. There are specials but menu does not change a lot. The Loose Caboose is popular with locals.

Best Sandwiches in the WORLD!!!! You may want to get it to go because the restaurant is pretty small, although the outside patio is very cozy.

Great dedication to a train theme without overdoing it. Loved the mural at the front and the train station style booths. The food was good, came relatively soon considering nearly everything is made to order. My one gripe is that they only accept cash or check, yet have an ATM awkwardly in front of the register.

My fault for ordering a Chicago dog in Willits, Ca. Hot dog itself was soft and they made salsa out of the toppings. Didn't eat it. Friends au jus was good though. Will try someplace else next time I'm in town
