Fun for the kids - one time only needed

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... read 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.

Ok this place has a lot of hype. Little trains that travel on a track above you bringing your food to the table in a box. The menu is burgers, fries onion rings. So here is my suggestion. Poke your head in and show the kids the neat little engines that bring the food the leave. By doing so you... More

this was a great restaurant! We were nervous when we first arrived at the line for a table, but it moved fairly quickly (I think we only waited 15 minutes). My husband loved that you ordered with a phone at the booth! My kids loved that the food was delivered by train! (they want all food delivered that way now!)... More

Took a group of kids and adults to Fritz's Railroad Restaurant to celebrate my son's birthday. While the food is not very good, the excitement of watching the kids and adults guess who is going to get their food is a fun experience. I think if I were to return, I would possibly skip the greasy hamburgers, yucky fries (change... More

Kids enjoyed watching the trains go around and cheering as people got their food. The food was average for diner food. What was nice was the combinations on their specialty burgers: ie the Gen-Dare with hash browns, grilled onions, cheese, pickles, mustard.

Fun and interactive place for kids, good food and friendly staff. If your kids like trains, this should be on your itinerary.
