The portions here are generous. The milkshakes are a family favorite. The burgers are big and yummy.

The signature ultimate breakfast is the best thing on the menu. We love going to jax on the tracks the aptmospher is really unique because it is a rail car....the old fashion diner. We go up to Truckee about 2-3 times a year for golf and wouldn't miss a visit at Jax on the Tracks. Highly recommend it!!!

Having had two less than satisfying dining experiences, I was a little reluctant to take my brother and sister there for dinner, but I thought that this time we might have a Diners, Drive Ins and Dives quality meal.

Usually not a fan of touristy locals. This is a DIners,drive/ins find. It's great. Comfort food at it's finest. Go for the meatloaf. It is their most popular and you'll know why. Very laid back and just good good food. Enjoy it.

This place was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and the food wasn't bad. We had a nice breakfast -- not any better than other places but not any worse either. It was worth the stop.

My wife and I ate lunch here on a recommendation from a friend. The server was friendly and polite, I have no problem with that. What I had problem with is, it took almost 45 minutes for our food to arrive. I was about ready to get up and leave when my wife asked the server what the hold up... More
