Extremely clean and entertaining for a 5, 7, 9 year old

After an all day trip to the Museum of Science and Industry we enjoyed stopping for dinner here on a Wednesday evening. We were a little concerned the 7 and 9 year olds might feel "too old" for this with Thomas the train playing on the televisions but they still enjoyed having their/our food arrive... read more

What munchkin wouldn't want their food served to them on a running model train? We went here with my niece and nephew figuring it would be a great place for kids....well, it definitely was! But surprisingly, the food was actually really good too! I didn't expect much since so much was clearly geared towards kids, but the menu was shockingly... More

I took my two grandsons here today and had a delightful time. Trains rule here and the food is very good. It is in a strip mall and may take a little looking to find but if you have a train enthusiast in your family it is a don't miss spot. They have a big U shaper lunch counter. A... More

Took my train enthusiast husband for a treat. Great burgers, but lots more great looking items on the menu and we saw them come around on the train. All looked super and tasted very fresh and well prepared. Perhaps the fun part is seeing the train run around and deliver your food and extensive items of train memorabilia to browse... More

You should definitely check it out. The kids have so much fun seeing their food delivered by a train. I thought the food was good not outstanding but you're definitely there for the experience! In the experience did not come up short handed.

Choo-choo !!! For toy trains fans and kids at heart this place could mean more than a dining experience.For those focused on food mostly the choice to eat here could mean grand fiasco! We returned here because we previously had seen the attractive window setting with choo-choo train maquette. The place was packed at about 5:30-ish.We had to sign up... More

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.

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.
