We love to take visitors to Fritz's for 2 reasons. 1) So our boys can watch the trains and patiently wait for the food to be served and 2) because it's just different! You call in your order from a phone in the booth and a train circling around overhead delivers the order to your table that is then lowered by a pulley system. There's a drive through as well if you just want one of their amazing burgers with hashbrowns on top, but we prefer the indoor visit. There's also another location inside Crown Center that's a unique experience, but we like to visit the SM location as it's closer to home and a bit easier to get into. The only downside is the prices are slightly inflated for a fast food dining experience, but overall it's a winner in our household.

This spot is a great place to enjoy a family meal and keep the kids occupied.
Food is your standard variety of hamburgers and such but is delivered by rail cars that encircle the restaurant.
Prices are decent but don't expect anything too fancy as far as ambiance.

Very fun place to eat. My son is a thomas the train fan and this just blew him away. The food is great and it is fun to watch the train deliver your meal to your table. Plus, you can get a Train hat how cool is that. Thanks for keeping up the fun. This is a must if you are in the KC area. They also have one downtown KC.

Its not GREAT food... A little over-priced, but its fun for kids so I guess that's all that matters. My nephews ask to come here whenever they come into town to meet with us. The train is a bit noisy, but other then that, just be prepared to spend some money.

We love to take our kids to Fritzs because the train is so much fun for them to watch. Our youngest is obsessed with trains so this keeps him happy while we eat. The food is good too and reasonably priced. (except the hot dogs which are just weird as they are served on hamburger buns)
