Look, go for the kids not the food. The trains are cool for them and how the food is delivered to the table by a delivery system on the ceiling. The food wasn’t great by any means but edible. I would go back again though because my 4 and 6 year old really enjoyed it.

We happened upon the Fritz restaurant in the Crown Plaza shopping area. We had never visited Kansas City so we were looking for a good place for lunch. This was a really fun restaurant - especially for us kids who love trains. You are seated and given a menu. When you are ready to order, you pick up the phone and place your order, They hand deliver your beverages and silverware and a train system then delivers your food via an ingenious platform delivery system. The delivery trains follow tracks above the booths and your food tray is pulled off of the train and placed on a platform that then lowers the tray to your table. The trains run continuously and it gets a bit noisy but the kids don’t mind. Kids get paper train engineer hats. The prices were very reasonable for good tasting food. Really enjoyed the butterscotch milkshake, hamburger with hash browns and bbq chicken sandwich with bacon. Nice and clean but a bit noisy. Lots of kids and families. Highly recommend this place if you have kids.

Needed a quick lunch before visiting our next exhibit at Union Station. We didn't have any kids with us, but we are all kids at heart. The food is delivered to the table by an overhead train system. Grilled cheese, chocolate shakes are good choices. We were surprised to find our hotdogs came on a hamburger bun; but they slice the hot dogs and it works fine. We may use this technique the next time we have a party with hotdogs and hamburers. You only have to buy one kind of bun. We really enjoyed the fun atmosphere here. This is a must visit if you have kids.

The hours for the Crown Center location were listed as closing at 8:00 but we showed up 12 minutes before 7. The manager was nice and let us come in but told us they were shutting down in 12 minutes. The kids were so excited but the staff was pissed off and rude. It was so sad! We called our order in on the little phone at the booth but forgot to add shakes so we called back and they were so darn rude about it. They told us that was the last thing we could order and hung up. I felt so bad because it could have been such a great experience! We ended up shoveling food in our bellies and leaving in 20 minutes because we needed to get out of there ASAP. I would not recommend this place until it’s under new management or has an overhaul of new staff and training.

We haven't been here in years and the only thing that has changed is that the service was even better then we remembered. The food was good and the atmosphere is always enjoyable watching the trains deliver the food and reading about the history. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Cute concept. The food is brought to your table by a toy train. You order the phone from a phone at your table. The food itself is about Burger King quality. If you want to eat healthy or have a vegetarian meal there are no options here. I wouldn’t come back here again.

My kids and parents both thought this was an amazing place, and loved watching the food come by train to the table! If you haven't been here, you have to go. One of my kids favorite things we did in Kansas City! The food was good too. Don't miss out on this fun place! Also, if you get a kids meal the hat comes with a coupon for Legoland Discovery Center across the street, so go check that out after!

I did go with a group of friends, but many years ago my parents took me here as a kid. It's a kid's dream come true to have their meals delivered by a train. The memory of the visit stuck with me forever. Wanting to see it again, my friends and I visited this restaurant on a Sunday afternoon. We came right as opened, but as we left it had a long line. The restaurant is inside the mall, so it's a great stop if you needed to take your kids with you while shopping. Their menu consists of mainly burgers, fried foods, and shakes. Perfect menu for a family with kids!

First - it's a Family/kid place. Order thru a phone at the table. Food delivered by an overhead train system; it carries a hopper that leaves it at your station, then gently lowers to the table. Cardboard hats for all. I got a burger and fries to go, tasty, could have been quicker.

If you have ever eaten at a Steak & Shake, or a Waffle House and wanted a different spin on things then this is the place for you! We spent our morning at the Lego Land Discovery Center and came hungry. Where can you take the family to place that you order over the phone on the table, and then get to watch as a locomotive delivers your meal from overhead and descends to the table via hydraulics. Our kids had a blast and we were just glad that we didn't have to make the meal. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time and good eats.

Everything I read about KC, everyone raved you got to try Fritz's! We were staying at Crown Center and this was easy to find and surprisingly my 10 year old daughter was excited about eating here. There were Conductor hats made from cardboard for the kids (kind of like the old Burger King crowns), there were trains going by the tables, and you order your food on the phone to the kitchen. Didn't take long, and our food was delivered by train and it brings the food right down to your table. Everyone here was very nice and friendly and the food was good. Burgers are paper thin, but it's a fun place to try once to say you got the experience.

This location was connected to the hotel where we stayed. I am so glad we stumbled upon it. Such a unique, fun & Covid friendly experience. A model train on the tracks above you brings your food to the table. Friendly staff & we all actually enjoyed our burgers!

Our son Loves trains he libes it here for the atmosphere. The trains and decor is great. The service that day was well the server did not want to be there.We have been here before its not for the food. Some of it is good just nothing special. We had the kids meal for our son (hotdog) it was half of a dog cut up on a bun. Around 6 dollars for it. Its a mist try for the experience not the food.

We had to wait in line, but just for a little bit. The hostess was very kind and wanted to make sure my mom, who uses a walker, would be comfortable. This was our first time and the hostess came back to our table a few times to ask if we needed anything. I wish I would have gotten her name. She was a very sweet lady. The trains were pretty cool, even for adults. The food was just ok, I probably wouldn't go back for the food.

Food wasn’t very good, I got the fries onion ring combo came with 2 onion rings and fries and one onion ring was burnt. Fries were over done half the fries were overdone. Everyone’s sandwiches were blah. Husband had grill chicken it was tasteless my daughter had a taco burger didn’t finish it. My son had a tenderloin it wasn’t good. I had a grill turkey and bacon it was hard. Was over priced to my grandson barely touched his food. Was almost 80 for 4 adults and 2 kids. We did like seeing the train and the train memorabilia.
