This place was recommended to us by the folks who run the local used book store, and we are very glad we went! It is a funky little place decorated with train stuff and has a very nice covered patio seating area. The menu is varied, so there should be something for everyone. I had the hot chicken pesto sandwich... More

I have frequented this restaurant for a long time and the food is always consistently delicious. Several friends make the 25 miles drive from Ukiah (south) just to eat here. What can I say, but be sure to stop in if you can. You'll be glad you did.

We just happened on the place and found it absolutely delightful. Very homey atmosphere, creative menu choices, and excellent service. We split the spicey chicken basil sub and it was plenty tasty and filling. We will definitely dine here again!

Found on Trip Advisor. Traveling through on our way to the Redwoods. AMAZING soup----mushroom and artichoke. I would have never put those two ingredients together but it was a perfect combination. Everyone liked there meal and good value for the quality of the food. Be warned---- they only take cash.

We have been to the Loose Caboose several times and their French dip sandwich is definitely worth the 20 mile trip from Ukiah. Other food has been very well prepared also and everything has been very good, including the chocolate shake. Besides serving wonderful food the prices are very reasonable. ( I cannot believe someone from Frisco complaining about spending... More

Saw this restaurant because we were down the street shopping. Decided to swing in. Very cute inside. Has indoor and outdoor seating. Wait staff was sweet and attentive. I didn't find the menu terribly exciting. It's large but it's largely sandwiches. They do have about 4 or 5 salad options and a few pizzas. They have about 3 options for... More

When you are in an unfamiliar place and don't want chain restaurant fast food, you take your chances. Fortunately, we chose an ok place. The salad was fresh but bland - his sandwich was filling. Nothing great or outstanding but nothing awful, either.

To sum up this restaurant, the food was very overpriced for what we got. A lunch for four cost $40, and you could probably find better values elsewhere.

I live near Willits, so I go to Loose Caboose regularly. The service is always great, food delicious and wonderful ambiance. When one of my daughters went away to college, she came back wanting most of all to go to Loose Caboose--she says she can't get sandwiches as good anywhere else. It's a good idea to get reservations if you... More
