Whistle Stop Frozen Custard calls a historic train depot home. Historic information and local trivia fills the walls. It's a very family-friendly venue, and includes indoor and outdoor seating. Patrons can watch trains go by on the Norfolk-Southern freight line from the wrap-around deck.

Service is fast and efficient. Order your railway-themed menu items at the window (formerly the ticket window) and you'll be given a "ticket" - when your number is called, pick up your food at the window. Lunch items include sandwiches, salads, and soups. The Tolono, a grilled chicken sandwich with roasted red peppers and provolone, is quite tasty. Menu includes several meatless offerings. Sandwiches are served with potato chips from Billy Goat Chips, a local, all-natural company. Toasted ravioli - a local favorite - are served hot and crispy.

Frozen custard desserts are worth the trip from several suburbs away. The prices are very reasonable. Want just a taste? You can have a tiny cone with just a squirt of custard (a few bites) for about fifty cents. For a bigger sweet tooth, try the shakes, sundaes, and other concoctions. The Smoke Stack, a "vertical banana split", is our family's favorite.

Whistle Stop is now open for dinner on select nights. For fall 2012, hours are 10 am to 8 pm on Thursdays and Saturdays. It's a great place for lunch on Saturdays after visiting the nearby Farmers' Market.
