We took our grandson to All Aboard Diner based on a recommendation, and we were nicely surprised. While it wasn't a beautiful place to me, it was the "Best Restaurant Ever" according to our Grandson. Just the way you want to see kids react. He was mesmerized by the trains and of course when the train delivered the food, well... More

My niece and I took her son to the restaurant just expecting so so food and service due to the railroad theme. Not only was our server Wendy great the food was excellent. We had wings, turkey burgers and a hamburger for my nephew and it was all good. The atmosphere is great for kids with a train track they're... More

Took my son here and he loved it! He liked how the food was brought out on a train from the kitchen. As far as the food goes, it was perfect. Their burgers were top notch.

We have taken all of our Grandchildren (always one at a time on a special day to spend with them individually) to the diner for years now and they always enjoy this unique restaurant. The food has improved to appeal to both children and adults and they also serve beer and wine for the adults. The diner has a special... More

We have eaten here many times and we enjoy it every time. It is obviously a place that is really entertaining to children and I don't ever recall seeing adults there alone so if you have kids that like trains then they will enjoy this place. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. They also have a handfull of... More

This is a smaller diner atmosphere geared to children and their parents/grandparents. A party room is also available for birthday parties. There is a model train at the front of the restaurant and the display is very nice. There is a stool for children to stand on for viewing. As you leave the restaurant a train whistle can be pulled.... More

From the moment you walk in the door, the kids are wide eyed & happy! Lots to keep them interested. From the train going around near the ceiling to the TV playing Thomas the Train. The food comes fast & the menu for kids is great. Something for everyone including fruit, which is nice to see on the menu. The... More

This place is fun for the kids but the food is low quality and expensive. They don't have good seating for kids

Went for impromptu 4-year old birthday party and it was perfect for young children and adults. Staff was very friendly and made it a memorable occasion. Corned beef sandwich, club sandwich with turkey, fried pickles, and chicken fries were tasty! We will go back when shopping at 75th and Lemont just for the food. A lady near us said her... More

We took my son for his seventh birthday. Our 3 year old appreciated it a lot more. They have child centric menus and decor. Nice for 1 visit.
