It was okay. Fun for kids

My family loved the idea of the restaurant. It is cool that you call on a little phone that is in your booth to order and than your food gets delivered by a train. It really was an awesome idea. The food was okay. It was pretty much like any other fast food restaurant. It really did take a long... read more

I took my family to fritz restaurant at crown center, Kansas City. When we arrived there was a line outside the door waiting to get in. In my experience when it takes you 45 minutes to get a table for LUNCH the food is usually good. The atmosphere is awesome from start to finish. The trains bring your food from... More

This fun restaurant is the perfect place to go if you are a family with kids! The food is delivered by trains that run along the walls and there are miniature electric trains running through the walls that are visible through the glass. The staff was friendly and little kids all around the restaurant were captivated by the trains. The... More

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
