“fresh and fabulous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2011

Mexican food is excellent at this little place next to the train track.
The shrimp tacos and the burritos are wonderful. The only drawback is that the seating is limited and uncomfortable. It is also closed on Mondays and between 3 & 5

“Best food in Smithers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

We regularly go to the Trackside for dinner - probably at least once a month. The food is totally delicious, the portions are large, and the staff is friendly. Sometimes when it's busy, it can get a little slow, but that's just more time to enjoy a margarita. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm and it smells heavenly.

“Amazing food and accomodating staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2011

I've been here many times since the place opened and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. Fresh ingredients and all home made dressings and condiments make this a very appealing place to eat. If you go at lunch, it may be busy so be prepared to wait a bit for your food. There is often a wait, but it's worth it for the quality - and they give you chips and salsa to much on while you are waiting. If you have any special dietary concerns they are very accepting at making substitutions as well.
