“You need to find this place off the strip!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

It was the sound of a choo choo train that got my two toddlers attention. We wandered down the road from where we had parked to find a corner side food location with train items (including what looks to be a caboose that you can sleep in at the motel its on!) We ordered hot dogs (toddlers did, wife and I ordered Chicagos). Vienna Beef, fantastic dogs. Man behind the counter was a character, kids loved him. They went inside, hit a few gizmos that made all sorts of train noises, and were about as happy as could be. Never knew this was here, but its absolutely on my list of places to eat at in the Dells now.

“great place to eat”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

The owner was talkative and polite. The true polish restaurant and the polish tacos were great. The smoked polish was wrapped in a soft tortilla shell. The hot dog was good as well as the dell taco- made with gyro meat. The free added fries were a great touch. Kids would love the realistic sounds of a train. The owner was nice and serves the food .

“a must eat!”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Just a block off the main drag. You can get a full tummy for a couple of bucks and have a great conversation with an interesting owner. If you have young ones with he will let them ring the bell on the caboose and he'll blow his horn. I'd stop again even if we are just passing through the area
