Great food, fun experience

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

Just had dinner there.....had pizza with sausage, hot ham and cheese and a hot dog platter (varying tastes in my family). The hots dogs were over done and the fries cold. Hot ham and cheese mediocre at best, but the most disappointing was the pizza...I had to look to make sure there was actually a brick oven because the pizza... More

After my favorite local pizza restaurant closed, I had almost given up hope of finding a true old-style pizza place in Wallingford. Then my cousins told me about Trackside. It is not impressive from the outside (a converted railroad car right next to the train tracks), but the pizza was outstanding. It reminded me of the best pizzas I had... More

Lets start by saying everything is made fresh. They make their own bread, rolls and pizza dough. They grate their cheese instead of buying prepackaged. I had their manicotti which was prepared fresh then baked in a brick oven it was wonderful. I will be back!!! Highly recommend.
