We've been to the Fritz's on 18th many times, my wife and her family have been going there for decades. We had never been to the Shawnee location, and decided we would give it a try. We went on a Tuesday for lunch. It was pretty steady the whole time we were there. The kids didn't really want to go, but that all changed by the time we left.

The restaurant is really nice. We were seated right away and starting looking over the menu. If you've never been to a Fritz's, let me tell you, you place your order over the phone located in you booth. We got 2 gen dares, fries, onion rings, and chicken nuggets with fries for the kids. We also all ordered milk shakes, three vanillas (we upgraded the kids meals to shakes, and they were bigger than I thought they were going to be) and one strawberry.

The shakes came, and they were very good, I happened to get the strawberry, and it was delicious. Of course the coolest and most unique part of Fritz's is the model train delivering food to your table. The kids were fascinated by it, and since it was steady there were plenty of trains to watch delivering orders. Our order came pretty quick after we ordered. The kids meals came with five nuggets, more than enough for a 2 and 4 year old, and a ton of fries. We got our gen dares and split fries and onion rings. We got a large order of fries and it was a lot of fries; and the onion rings came with eight. The food was all very good.

The service was very good, they were stopping by asking how things were and if we needed anything. If you are looking for a unique place to get a burger this is definitely the place. Now the kids can't wait to go back to the "train restaurant".

we have enjoyed fritz hamburgers and fries for years at the crown center location. they have added this new restaurant in shawnee, ks and it is better. table are bigger and wider hallways. food is great. and the star of the show is the model train delivering your food to the table via an overhead railroad that fascinates old and young alike. then the food comes down a little elevator from the train. its great...

The food is nothing special and it's pricey for what you get. The restaurant is loud. Now for the good news. The food is ordered by phone at the booths and a train delivers the food to your table. It's something different and people of all ages will like this.

This place is just not for kids! My sister and I visited this restaurant on a girls trip to visit her at school. The place is tiny but so awesome. You call in your food and a small train along the ceiling brings you your food. The food was super fast and very good. I have recommended this to just about everyone.

We took our grandaughters there. We are from CA and they were looking forward to Fritz's because they saw it on TV. The phone for ordering didn't work and we had to chase down an employee to order. Our order was delivered by a food server and not the train system. The food wasn't anything worth the effort to get there. Overall, a lot of hype and no follow-through.
