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.

My five year old is a train fanatic, so when we were in the area, we planned lunch at All Aboard. I enjoyed a taco salad and a standard issue hotdog for my son. The train delivering the food combined with train decorations, trains moving on tracks, Thomas on the multiple big screens and arcade attractions, he was beyond distracted.... More

A friend suggested this diner as a meeting point for our families while we were visiting from downstate. If your little one loved trains, they will love this restaurant. One piece if advice: waiting for a counter seat is totally worth it. Trains deliver your food to you if you sit at the counter. I had the BLT salad. It... More

It's a great place to take the kids for a special lunch, how can you beat having your meal delivered by a train? They can also watch the other trains travel around the walls... Varied menu, but I thought the food was just average. Go there for the kids sake, not for the food.

This is a really neat restaurant. It is in train motif with Thomas the Engine videos playing for the kids. They have a train that goes around the bar area and overhead. Good times for the little ones. But what surprised me was how good the food is. Their soups are great and sandwiches really good and flavorful. Owners on... More
