It was our first visit to this restaurant and did not expect the quaint interior to look like it did. It has a warm feel to it. The menu is small, which is good but I do have to warn you, it is a little pricier than your regular restaurant. I was not sure if I wanted to pay the... More

Opening up under new management (sometime in 2014?) Utility upgrading and renovations required by City of Norcross (lessor). Controversial change of hands. Original lessee lost contract with City. "New" restaurant to be managed by owners of nearby Cuban-American restaurant, which has been a proven success. TripAdvisor requires entries for each factor in a review. I am selecting "average" or an... More

I have eaten here many of times and have never been disappointed. The fried green tomatoes, chicken fingers, and fried chicken are my favorite! Great food, staff, and atmosphere. You can also get in and out in under an hour if you go on your lunch break.

As its name suggests, Norcross Station Cafe is located right next to railroad tracks. It's been a fixture in Norcross for decades and it's a fun place to have a bite.

We found ourselves in Norcroas for a convention. The convention was a bust and we still had another day in Norcross. We didn't want to drive into Atlanta on the weekend if we didn't have to so I got on trip advisor and found this resturant. We took a chance and it was amazing. The weather had just started to...

This is a historic Norcross landmark train station that was converted to a restaurant serving a wide variety of Americana food. The servings are plentiful and perfectly acceptable from a taste standpoint. Unfortunately, the scoop is that this landmark is going away soon, having been bought out by the Cuban place across the street, so enjoy it while you can.

I was invited to this restaurant for a bridal luncheon in early October. The bride, her bridesmaids, her mother, the mother of the groom, and I were seated in a “private” room so we could enjoy a very nice lunch together. The restaurant used to be the train station in the city of Norcross, and it has been converted into... More

You'll be fortunate to dine at this lovely restored railroad station before it changes hands from one restaurateur to another - probably at the end of 2013. For now, the fare is pretty typical "American Homestyle" with something for everyone and is nicely prepared. Others have commented on the cost of the meals, but I found it only a tad... More

I met with a friend here for lunch. Food was decent. Not the best I have had but also not the worst. Normal roadhouse food. We had a late lunch so the pace was relaxed which was perfect for the occasion as we had time to talk..

It's not bad and surely it is well-patronized. One could argue that its main attraction is that it IS a reconditioned railroad station and freight trains and the occasional Amtrack go zipping by and vibrate the dishes. The inside lighting is atrocious. So, assuming that the heat and humidity is tolerable, a table on the downtown-facing deck/porch, assisted by some... More
