This place is located off of River Road and Ogden where the old Dominick's was located. Nice family restaurant with alot of train decor-the track circles the counter and delivers your meal and blows the whistle! You don't have to be a kid to love that! Old fashioned counter service and booths and an old fashioned 25c horsey to ride... More

My daughter and I were visiting friends in Glen Elly and we went here for my daughter's birthday. The food is very good but the experience is really the reason to go. All of the tables/bar seats are situated around a train track that is used to deliver your food via train. The kids jumped up and down every time... More

The food is decent, the difference being your food comes out on a train. In downtown Glenn Ellyn appropriately near the train tracks/station.

We took our grandson who loves trains. He was jumping out of his skin he was so excited. Sit at the bar and watch the train go by with your food order.

Went here with our 2 year old grandson. Seems kind of cheesy with the train set-up but felt it was for kids. Huge surprise when I got my burger. No frills but was excellent.

The train service is special for little ones and makes their food and visit so much better. Typicall burgers and fries.

Great place to take little ones to watch the train deliver their hamburgers and fries (very good burgers). Service is a little spotty, very noisy (no surprise) so be prepared. A fun grandparent/grandchild outing -- bonus, trains regularly go by the restaurant outside! A little pricey for the food, but you are paying for the fun experience.

Great little place! The menu is simple and food is really good. Your food is delivered on the train in baskets! We ordered burgers and a sandwich for the adults and a hot dog for the little one. All were prepared as if we were at home in our kitchen. Staff was extremely friendly and the cook came out and... More

Nice clean restaurant and if you are OK with going down a flight a stairs to use the facilities, good deal. A little pricy for not so spectacular food.

We had lunch with our grand kids there and they just loved it. Having the train bring the food is just a novel idea and the decoration of the place is grand - even for "big kids". Since you might encounter a bit of a wait sometimes there is this mechanical horse entertaining your youngsters. The food is pretty much... More
