We've eaten at a lot of restaurants on our many travels across the US but this was one of the best spots! They specialize in burgers, quesadillas, salads, and ribs. The staff was friendly, answered our many questions and made recommendations when asked. They also serve Coke products which is hard to find in this area. We had burgers, which... More

Fun & good variety of cafe style food. Sandwiches are really good. Portions are good sized. We have eaten here many times and have never had a disappointment in either food or service.

We have eaten here every year we visit. The food is fantastic. It is crowded and very popular. The only draw back is the air conditioning is always turned up so high we have to go get a jacket to wear while eating.

I had a burger and a side of Mac& cheese. The meat was pretty dry and the greens very wilted. The Mac & cheese was very dry and tasteless. I'm sure it was heated in the microwave just before serving. I was hungry so I ate most of my meal but would not return. There are better places.

My name is Josee Chamberlain with the Art City Trolley. With no justification, after 20+ years in business, we still have major improvements to make. I am very sorry for your negative experience at our restaurant. If I could, I would go back in time and change these things. I would like to say, however, that I appreciate you bringing... More

Over the years I've eaten here several times. It has always a good atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. Everything I've tried, I like but i especially like the salads and you can get half or full depending on your appetite. I keep coming back. What more can I say.

I expected it to be better based on the reviews I read. Our order took a long time (Saturday at 2 pm) to get to us. I had a quesadilla which was yummy. I ordered a side of guacamole for $2 and it was a tiny little cup that contained more tomatoes than avocado. It was fine but I wouldn't... More

I had the art City special salad and it was the best salad I've ever had. I like how the chicken was cut into small pieces and every bite had a bit of everything. The kids meals were nice and big too. My husband had a Cali club and he really enjoyed it too. We live three states away but... More

We met up with a young couple who live down the street from the Trolley, but seldom get the chance to visit--our grandson and his new wife. We all placed different orders for sandwiches, burgers, and quesadilladas. All were excellent as were the sides. The place is cute, the food is delicious, and we had a fine time. When you... More

So it's located in a quaint little town with buildings that have bricks that the pioneers spat in to have them stick. The Trolley did catch my eye and when a town has a Trolley that converted into a restaurant you have to stop and check it out. The decor is what you would expect. Nice main dining room when... More

Description
Established in 1994 On Feb. 5, 1994, The Art City Trolley Restaurant
officially opened its doors. After locating the 1931
Brill Bullet Trolley car in an almost abandoned
state some six months earlier, Jeff and Kelly
Decker along with numerous family members and
friends restored the Trolley Car and converted it
into a small roadside diner that boasted seating
for 26 people. Thanks to a supportive community,
(and some great food), 2 years later the small
diner grew to a seating capacity of 115 with the
addition of the "Trolley Station" that stands today.

The original menu has evolved from favorites
like the Baby Back Ribs that won "Zagat's
Dinning Guide" for "Best BBQ in the State", to
the legendary Art City Special Salad. In January
2009 we reached another milestone by becoming
one of "Utah Valley's Best Choice" for Salads.
As always we use the freshest ingredients and
original recipes concocted from scratch here in
the restaurant.
