“disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Friends and I went to the Sidetrack last August for a mid-afternoon lunch. I'd been there before a long time ago and remembered it well. This time was disappointing. It was dingy and didn't seem clean. Our food took a long time to arrive and was not very good. I'll likely try again, but not for a while. They do have nice, generous outdoor seating, but it was too hot that day for us to use it.

“Tasty updated comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This iconic Depot Town restaurant has a broad menu with huge beer inventory. A bit crowded and noisy but this can be good. nice flavors but hard to find low calorie items - love the margarita salad

“A Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This place has a giant menu. So, at first, I was skeptical. Any place with a menu so large just cant be that great because how could it all be kept fresh? Well, I should not have judged because its all fresh ingredients and delicious. While its known for its burgers, not detail is overlooked; my salad was wonderful. There were lots of alternative options too like tofu and black bean burgers, etc. I dont know who the chef is, but this person fully understands food. The mac & cheese was delicious too. The place has a great feel in on old building with exposed brick in the very raw feeling Depot Town. There are lots of different types of people working here and eating here. I definitely recommend.

“Sweet potato fries are amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Have eaten here often for years. Always get the sweet potato fries and turkey reuben sub tempeh. Casual place that all can enjoy. Our kids share the sliders and love to sit outside to see the train on lucky days.
