This was definitely a unique experience - eating inside a rail car! And it was good food with great service. Had the hamburger and it was juicy with lots of flavor. Did not taste frozen. Would definitely recommend if you're in the area. Hard to find, though.

Unique location eating in a train car. Friendly staff. Good half pound cheeseburger. Plan to try the Reuben next time.

This cafe, though small never feels crowded. Instead it's comfy in a laid back setting, with awesome interior and exterior design. Not only is this cafe a feast for the eyes but the food is sublime!! I tend to be picky when eating fast food, but everything taste home made and absolutely splendiferous for a pretty reasonable price. If i was just driving through I would take the time to stop here for sure.

Even though it's kind of hard to find, this place is amazing. Not only is it fun to eat in an old dining car, but they have fantastic food. Their fried pickles are the BEST!

This place is an old railroad Dining Car, so it is a lot of fun just entering it. The food is great as are the decorations on the walls. We have eaten here many times with and without our Grandkids, and always had great food and service.
