“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

My first time here was for lunch about a year ago. I ordered one of their salads which was quite tasty. THe service was a bit slow but that was OK as I needed a break from driving. the second time here was for dinner. I ordered the BBQ Brisket and my friend ordered the ribs. Both were cooked well enough but the sauce was way too sweet for both of our tastes. A bucket of different sauces was given to us. We tried each one with disappointment. SO, if you need a break from driving go ahead and stop. But if you are looking for a better than average meal, drive on.

“Pay Cash! Or Move On!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We use to frequent this place every time we came to town. Which was about 3-4 times a year. Paid with debit card and had nearly $1500 charged on card with in hours. This was the one place I used my debit card all weekend and that's what happens. Decent food friendly service but I'd stick to cash or go somewhere else.

“Fun and tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We went here for the "train" experience of having the little trains deliver your food. All 10 of us fit in one huge booth and enjoyed a fun lunch. Prices weren't bad for the Dell's but not a "cheap" lunch. Sunday buffet was good with a nice variety. Homemade root beer was very good as well. LOTS of food for the money. Good family atmosphere. We waited 25 minutes to get a table with "train service." The place is HUGE and connected to an arcade/adventure type kids area. We went on line ahead of time and found a 10% off coupon. I would go here again. It was fun, friendly, decent food and good service.

“Wonderful Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Stopped in for dinner later in the evening. There were few people there at that time of the night. Our waitress,Jenny, was very sweet and very attentive. She made the overall experience very nice. We ordered the tri tip sandwich on sour dough bread. (can't remember the name the called it) It was served with a large amount tasty fries. The sandwich was good although we felt they were somewhat shy with the tri tip and the onions and peppers could have been a little more tender. The resturant was decorated nicely and the train theme was cute for people with children. The only complaint I have is that the music was way too loud making conversation difficult. I suppose if the place is busy, one would notice.

“Really very good overall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I'm not sure why some people would pan this place, because it is a straight-forward, no pretenses family restaurant. Every time we've been there, the food has been tasty and served in an efficient manner and in great quantities. Great for the kids and grandkids, the trains are a hoot (pun intended) and the arcade in the back is a plus.
