This place is a step back in time. A train delivers the kids meals as it goes around the counter, it's kid friendly for sure. The meals are not cheap but decent.

My sons and I have gone to the Choo Choo for years and they love it there. It's a small space and it tends to get crowded so going on off hours is a good idea (think around the time that kids nap). The service has been excellent and the owner has stopped by to say hello and make sure we were happy with the food. I am surprised by the negative reviews as we have been customers since 2007. The sloppy joes are excellent!

We went by here after finding this location on Roadside America. The place was packed on a Monday around 1:00PM. Lots of kids. The food looked fine. More like a burger joint for fun. Unfortunately, we couldn't eat there because they don't take credit cards and we didn't have any cash.

Burgers are good, juicy and full of flavor, there is a little train that goes around and delivers your food. Kids love it, place is packed on saturdays, however i think it's a little pricey for a burger joint.

A little pricey. Food is basic, tastes ok. The main attaction is the food delivery on the flat cars from the kitchen. I took my kids there and now have taken my grand kids there.
