Fun place to take kids

Went with family while visiting KC recently. The line was extremely long but it moved quickly. The food was ok, not great but ok. But you go here for the train theme, not the food. I highly doubt I would ever go with just adults but it's a fun place to take kids for lunch.

There is no question kids LOVE this place. Be prepared for a loud restaurant. The food is ok, nothing amazing but good enough, but it is over priced. You clearly pay extra for the atmosphere. Still, it is a unique experience. I can't imagine regretting the experience if just to see the look on your kid's face when the food... More

The food is great! And if you have children, they will love the way the food is delivered by a train on tracks above your head. Very fun for the kids.

I have been here many many times over the last 10 years. My teenage son still loves coming here and getting his food delivered by train. Food is good, reasonably priced, and a tradition in Kansas City

Daughter had gone here on school field trip when her class was visiting KC, so during our Easter visit in town she wanted Mom and Dad to experience it. Crown Center was packed, so there was quite a line to get in. We visited a few places and came back an hour later and the line was more manageable. My... More

My kids (boys ages 7 and 8) had fun watching the train cars go around and figuring out how the trays would come down and deliver the food. The service was very good from the servers who brought out our drinks, etc. The food was mediocre. I had a cheeseburger. It was dry. The fries were only so-so. I think... More

This is a throwback from a bygone era - a person seats you at a table, then you call in your order from your table (speak loudly and don't mind the static!). A waitress will bring your drinks, but your food will be delivered via toy train. Although the food is just so-so, and the service can be good or... More

Without the insanity of a arcade/pizza place, Fritz's is more for the fun and creating memories for children. The food is average burger and hotdog fare. The overhead model trains that run and the food delivery system that circulates around WILL keep children entertained. My grandson often asks to eat at the "Trains".

Highly recommend for families with children. The kids are always amazed with the trains and the delivery of the food. Food is ok but the delivery of the food and trains going around are great!

This is a fun place for kids especially. A good sized model train runs along a track overhead and delivers your meal. Food not too bad.
