Fun place to bring young children. Eat at the counter. Good brought to you by train. Fun atmosphere. Not a lot of seating. Worth waiting for

This is by far this best restaurant I've been in with regard to accommodating people with food allergies. Always have had good and friendly service. The train delivering food when you sit at the counter is fun for the kids. Many menu choices in a diner like atmosphere.

All Aboard Diner is a wonderful place to have a bite to eat with your kids or grandkids. It is choo-choo train themed diner. The food is quite good considering the diner is geared to entertain children. On the evening we were there, the specials included Siracha wings and French dip nachos – hardly children’s fare. I had the beer... More

You get to see a bunch of happy kids and adults here. Would I go without a child? Probably not, but the food is fine for hamburger, hot dogs, and salads. The service is done with a smile and usually some chitchat. Counter service is the vip seating, so that your food is delivered by train. Yes, there are games... More

This is a small, family run diner, and each of the workers were not only polite, but worked their butts off! They literally never stopped moving! They do a great job of getting customers in and out in a very respectable way. There are 2 places you can sit, at a table/booth or at the main counter where a train... More

Favorite place for children - especially younger ones. Train theme restaurant. Large TV showed Thomas the Train shows. Have your quarters ready for games & mechanical rides. Children fascinated by toy train set up as you enter restaurant. Food is good - burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches and salads. Fun part is counter seats have that delivers food. Counter seats are...

The concept is great for kids but the food is terrible for adults. Anyone with taste buds can tell they are opening a bunch of frozen food bags and frying/preparing it. Just not worth the money or time.

We were visiting family and friends, and this was the highlight of our grandsons' trip. The "Choo choo restaurant ", as the three and one year olds called it, has great food, friendly service, and made our little ones literally squeal with excitement when the Choo choo trains came "from everywhere" around. I would support a chain, if this family... More

My wife and I brought out 6 and 3 year old to All Aboard on Memorial Day. We just wanted to get out of the house and thought this was a cool idea. The kids really enjoyed it. The food is brought out hooked up to an electric train that covers the entire diner counter. The diner also had a... More

Great food for kids and adults and great staff. Train delivery of food keeps the kids busy. At time, especially lunch the place does get busy.
