Very affordable dining, but I believe it is cash only. As a family we tried the burger, sweet potato fries, tacos and chilli dog. Enjoyed all choices, but the kids LOVED the tacos. Beer and wine available. It was very busy for dinner.

The great selling point of CARNEY'S is that it is in an actual train car. It's a fun experience that kids and adults will like. I hadn't been to Carney's in years and was shopping next door and decided to treat myself to lunch there....More

Carneys combines great chili with quality burgers. A must try if you visit LA. Add Pinks, and the original Tommy's to this list and you will have had the BEST of LA

The lady who served us was fantastic! Our food was absolutely perfect and delicious we went back for more. We are in LA from New Zealand and this was the best burger and hotdog we have had the entire trip

Stopped here for lunch while on a tour and LOVED it! I had the chili cheeseburger with bacon...Oh.My.Gosh! The burger was juicy, the chili was flavorful and not too spicy at all. I also tried the chili cheese fries and they were fresh not soggy....More

Not sure. I know their menu is posted on their website.
