Good family restaurant

We are regulars at trackside. The food is good. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere fun. Kids love it because they can see the train go by! Overall a good restaurant!

off the beaten path, parallel to Rt 5, along the railroad tracks, Trackside is a converted subway/train car. Has miminal seating inside, no frills but unique. Kids love it when the train comes by. Brick oven pizza is great! A fun experience for the family

My husband eat there now and then the pasta and meatballs are pretty good but if your doing take out like we usually do they always forget your salad and the Young girls that are at the register are totally oblivious to what goes with what and tend to over charge so make sure you pay attention.

Came a few times and haven't had any problems yet. Food isn't 5 star but good for the price. It is very hard to find broccoli rabe and sausage at restaurants and they make it great here. Grinders are good and french fries are very good. I have yet to try the pizza but others in my group have and... More

We were passing through the area and stopped here based on previous reviews. The atmosphere is really fun, and the pizza was delicious, thin and tasty, with a slight smokey flavor from the brick oven. The prices were very affordable and very reasonable for the size of the pizzas, which is a always big plus. They only serve bottled soda,... More

The place is a railcar that sits beside the tracks, lot of history. The food is great, not just the pizza. Wine and beer are available and the owners are warm and friendly. This is a fun experience and well worth the stop.

This place is not easy to find but still worth finding it. I had the meatball grinder and it was freshly cooked which was a big plus and the meatballs were homemade. The sauce is very good. And so were the French fries. If your over 5'9" or over 200lbs good luck fitting in this place as it is very... More

I've been there 3-4 times now, and each time, the pizza has been excellent. Perfectly cooked, thin crust, excellent flavor and great service. Hidden gem for sure.

Stopped in to grab a pizza based on a recommendation. I stopped in right at closing time, and the staff did not say a word- they were friendly and willing to make a pizza. I had a plain personal pizza (they don't sell slices), and it was excellent. It had the right mix of sauce/cheese, and the crust was really... More
