Established in 1994 On Feb. 5, 1994, The Art City Trolley Restaurant officially opened its doors. After locating the 1931 Brill Bullet Trolley car in an almost abandoned state some six months earlier, Jeff and Kelly Decker along with numerous family members and friends restored the Trolley Car and converted it into a small roadside diner that boasted seating for 26 people. Thanks to a supportive community, (and some great food), 2 years later the small diner grew to a seating capacity of 115 with the addition of the "Trolley Station" that stands today. The original menu has evolved from favorites like the Baby Back Ribs that won "Zagat's Dinning Guide" for "Best BBQ in the State", to the legendary Art City Special Salad. In January 2009 we reached another milestone by becoming one of "Utah Valley's Best Choice" for Salads. As always we use the freshest ingredients and original recipes concocted from scratch here in the restaurant.

Nancy, I see that you're from Logan. Did you drive all that way to come to the restaurant?! We're so happy you've found items on the menu that you love returning to! I can't convince you to get the Chocolate Cake, but we have had people 'try' it out as an appetizer... and well... they gobble it all up! Thanks... More

I grew up in nearby Mapleton and have frequented almost all of the restaurants in the Springville/Mapleton area, and The Trolley is by far the best restaurant in the area.

My husband and I live in Provo and have attempted multiple times to "branch out" our restaurant repertoire, but always end up back at Art City Trolley. (The servers are even beginning to recognize us...) The food and atmosphere are just downright great. We recommend the Sweet Sensation Salad, Hawaiian Burger, Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla, Trolley Wings, or Spicy Chicken Salad.... More

This small restaurant serves excellent salads and sandwiches, with really delicious desserts. (The fries are especially yummy and plentiful--one plate will serve several people.) The atmosphere is interesting, with motorcycles, license plates, and other interesting relics, the tales are truly retro. Only complaint: limited servers, so sometimes you have to wait a bit.

I love this place. The Blue Bacon Burger with fresh cut fries is what I usually get. My wife loves the Wing Burger (With Honey BBQ sauce). If you want a salad, they are very good and are huge. I really need to try some of the other food but I just can't seem to break away from my favorite... More

So this place looks like a plain average restaurant from outside. But once inside this old street cart, you feel like you're in a brand new place. Decor, service and cleanliness were all great and the menu is extensive with plenty of options. Great original style shakes too. It's a must try place.
