Such a nice surprise when arriving after an 8-hour trip on Amtrak to be introduced to Union Station. The selection of places to shop and eat is unlimited and the shop-owners and restaurants owners and personnel were very helpful and friendly.

There is a food court located inside Union Station. There are about 10 different options ranging from burgers to salads to gyros. It's like any other food court. It was very busy but the service was quick.
