Fun for the Kids

This is a great place to take the kids. Even the older children were entertained. If you are looking for the best hamburger in KC, you might go somewhere else. But if you are looking for a fun time with the family , give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

We love this place. I've always taken my kids there since they were little. Now my oldest and his cousin are 14 and still have fun. Trains bring the food to the tables! Two things: we don't go for the food. #2: the line to get in is long but it goes fast.

Not fancy at all. Quite novel, order by phone get your meal delivered by a train. Food was good. Not a dieters place, and grab a napkin.

What a cute concept! When you're ready to order, you pick up the phone receiver at your table and call in your order. When the food is ready, the train that travels the track by the ceiling is what delivers it! We had a ton of fun watching the train go by and guessing whether or not it was going... More

I hadn't researched this place at all. The surprise of the train bringing our food was absolutely awesome. Good burgers, average service, and most memorable atmosphere.

Like most reviewers have commented, the food is pretty average but that isn't why everyone goes anyway. It's good enough and inexpensive enough to make it worth the trip. There was a pretty long line to be seated but it seemed to move quickly. If you have a large group you will have to be seated separately as all they... More

You are definitely going for the atmosphere because the food is very average. Took kids (5&9) and they loved watching the trains go around the restaurant. Fun for the cart of good to be dropped at your table by the train. Cute place to take pictures while you wait in line. Lines can get very long and the restaurant is... More

The food is average fried food, nothing special. But the delivery method is so much fun - even for a college kid. I come to Fritz's once, if not more, a year because I love the train.

The coolest part is how your food is delivered to you by little trains overhead. Unfortunately, the customer service we received when placing our order was not so great. The people serving tables were friendly though.

Cute little diner where you order by phone and an overhead train delivers your meal. Everyone liked the atmosphere but everyone disliked the food. My kids had the chicken and they each only ate two because they didn't like them. My older child had the chicken sandwich and was not fond of it. I had the cheeseburger and it was... More
