Off the path a bit, in a remodeled rail car (caboose?). Small and quaint, but unique. Good selection of sandwiches, the pulled pork was as good as you'll find.

You want some food made with love and soul well here it is! I am a local and I hit it up once a week. Try the Chicken Fried Steak for breakfast or the Smoked Chicken Burrito for lunch. Those are my go to's, but in reality you can't go wrong on the menu from top to bottom.

We ate lunch here on a Friday. It has an unusal look in that it is an old railcar., Our waitress was very friendly and we got a booth inside. There was not a great selection on the lunch menu and the food itself was just ok - nothing special. We saw a line of people ouside this place the... More

Breakfast sucks. We ordered two meat frittatas. One with hollandaise the other will green chili. Ate half looking for meat, asked the waitress who got surly. Cook seemed to be stoned. Apparently cook made an executive decision gave us their garbage lovers delight as they were out of meat and didn't bother to tell us. Waitress acted like it was... More

This is like the quintessential greasy spoon but with Alaska flair. Really great food and great service. There is always a wait for a table inside but its worth the wait. Especially breakfast. Delish!

Enjoyed a great, fresh breakfast in a fun, local atmosphere. Timing is everything. Seems like we hit it just right, no wait. Place is small-old train car, food was fresh and hot. Coffee and tea were great we'll definitely be going back!

At first I didn't want to go in but my friend wanted to give it a try. He asked and they said they did smoke their own meat so then he really wanted to try. So we did and I'm glad we did because the brisket that I had was great and my friend really enjoyed the pulled pork.Be prepared... More
