Fantastic philly! We had the Super Chief steak philly with onions, green pepper, mushrooms and cheese, but others are available. The BEST horseradish ever, and I don't even really care for horseradish! Fun for the family - look up toward the ceiling so as not to miss the train making it's rounds. This is an order-at-the-counter and find a seat... More

Went on a Monday evening. Bragged to my 11 year old son about what a great philly he would have. First thing we noticed was how dirty the place was. Second no train. Third, very salty, barely eatable philly. I will admit to not going here often, but in the past the place was excellent, what happened. New owner?? lack... More

Definitely the best Philly in KC. The cheesy bacon fries were incredible. They even have mini funnel cakes! The sweet potato fries are great also. And Kids meals are only .99 on Sunday and Wednesday.

Lenexa location is no where close to being as good as the location on Metcalf. Love the basic sandwich but need to go to Metcalf to get it.

Stopped here as a philly cheesesteak sounded pretty good. This is very flavorless meat and cheap type cheese. I know a philly usually has Cheeze Wiz type cheese, but this was like the worst nacho cheese ever that came with it. It was a good size and at just under $7 about what I expected. The A-1 sauce helped to... More

Stopped by the Chartroose Caboose on the way home for a "true philly cheesesteak". Unfortuantly, I stopped here, and they had no ability to produce a cheesesteak sandwich. If you like microwaved Steakumm's, this is your place. The meat was so bland......yuck.

Where else can you get a good cheesesteak? Portions are decent and it's always cooked fresh. It's great for hangovers because it is a little greasy. Definately worth going there once every couple of weeks/months. It's good.

I have tried all the Philly places and Chartroose Caboose is definitely the best. I know they use lean sirloin and add their own seasonings. The cheese fries and sweet potato fries are to die for. I tried the rice bowl recently and it is their Philly without the bun on top of a bed of white or brown rice... More

Sandwiches are $7 not including fries or onion rings. So, by the time you order a sandwich, onion rings ($3) and a drink ($2), it's $12 for lunch. Rediculous prices. An order of onion rings is 5 small rings. That's it. And don't ask for ketchup, there isn't any. The philly sandwich I had tasted bland, even though it was... More

There's always a line outside of this place at lunch. Great food, fast service and very reasonably priced. Definitely a gem.
