“Southern Comfort Food At Its Finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

Hubby and I have had the opportunity to travel the world and dine in some fantastic restaurants. And, as much as we relish those experiences, being born and raised in the South, we crave good, wholesome Southern cooking. You'll have to look a long time to beat the food at Silver Caboose! We usually try and eat lunch there at least once every week. While they do have a standard menu with old-time favs like frozen fruit salad, homemade chicken salad, and sandwiches ... the star of their show is their daily "specials" hand-printed on little sheets of paper you are handed when you're seated! They change daily and consist of 2-3 main courses and several freshly prepared and delicious vegetables expertly cooked with TLC! It's hard for me to even consider eating here without having my beloved turnip greens and cornbread. But every single vegetable and main course is worth the trip. Meatloaf like my mom used to make. Chicken and dumplings, roast chicken with dressing and gravy, chicken fried stead to start. Is it fancy? No. Is it wonderful? Sure is! I can't rave about this place enough. If you're ever in the Collierville area for lunch, you MUST give this place a try. Oh ... did I mention their fantastic homemade pies for dessert?

Very cute little place to go in Collierville! They have the BEST chocolate chess pie you will ever have!! Amazing!!! They also have the best green beans ever!!! They are a little on the pricy side. But over all a very good place to go!!

“Nice place to take out of town visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Haven't been to the Silver Caboose in several years but the food is still good. It's a noisy atmosphere so hard to hear. The menu tends toward tea room food but still has plenty of food for the guys. Daily specials are usually hearty and good. Crème brulee is one of the best. I love tomato aspic and egg/olive sandwiches and the Caboose has some of the best I've had anywhere. A good place to take visitors since you can shop on the Square without driving anywhere.

“Good Food on the Square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I enjoy coming to the Silver Caboose for lunch. My daughter and I have eaten here several times. The menu is just the thing for a girls' day out with finger sandwich type selections. There are also plenty of Southern comfort foods. There is a take out section, too. Everything is homemade. The atmosphere also makes this a one of a kind experience. Leave room for dessert, or be sure and take something home for later.

“Meat and Three”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We have eaten at the Silver Caboose serveral times in the last few weeks and have been pleased with the quality of the food, table service, and atmosphere. The whole experience makes you feel that you are in a small rural town instead of suburban Memphis.

Their strength is their meal and vegtable meals. Unlike many restaurants of this type around town, their vegtables taste fresh and aren't overcooked. Wait staff are all friendly outgoing types making you feel welcome, almost like home.

The restaurant is located on the Collierville Square with many small shops worth visiting.
