“Disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Charged per item you select from a cafeteria style service. Didn't think the food was that good, either. A bit difficult to locate. Was nice to see a train had broken down and the commuters had to disembark. Some came to the restaurant to eat; others took a taxi to the train station.

“A gem of a resturant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Stopped by to take railroad pictures of Irondale Yard and sheriff deputy told me I should try the cafe out across from the caboose viewing site.
I had to wait 45 minutes until they opened at 11 am but it was really worth it. Food was cafeteria style but the selections were great and the food was delicious. Met some rail fans there and had a great social with the locals. Great place . And young lady really kept tea glass full and was very informative about the cafe and the movie.

“Right by the Railroad tracks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Good Southern home cooking. Fried Okra could have been better, but the rest of our food was great. Service was very good. The young lady refilling our Sweet Tea never let us go dry.
