Great selection, very good food, very casual, worth the trip to check it out. You order, take a table and they bring out the food.

Has both a good Breakfast and Lunch Menu. Also take time to see the pictures of Cabooses on the walls. Does have trains around the pullers.

Stopped in for breakfast at 8:00 AM on Tuesday, slow day only 2 other people dinning there. Hummm.....🤔 is this a sigh of a good place to eat? You ordered from the wall menu and paid at the counter. Then you find a seat and they bring it out to your table. You get your silverware and napkins at a... More

I like supporting local businesses and this restaurant makes it easy because it is so tasty. I like it for breakfast usually but also they make great wraps, burgers and salads for lunch as well as a quick meal for dinner. I have never been disappointed there.

Food was good but seemed a little pricey for a diner. Booths and tables were clean, floor has seen better days. A huge train theme so if that is your thing you should go just for that.

Introduced family members to this Mundelein mainstay over the weekend. They've been driving by for years and never stopped in before... they were impressed and will be returning for Breakfast when in the area. Good hearty omelets, great potatoes with onions, plentiful coffee refills and a fun relaxed atmosphere. Keep the train going, guys!

The food here is really good, just make sure you bring cash as they charge a small service fee for running a card.

My wife, daughter (2.5 yrs), and I went in for an easy lunch the other day. The staff were extremely friendly, and the food was very good (sandwiches mostly). My daughter is into trains right now, so she enjoyed the simple atmosphere. We would definitely stop in for lunch again in the future.

We decided to try this place based on an ad. We went Saturday morning for breakfast. Nice 'townie' place which we love. Its interesting that you order and pay and then they bring you your food. We tried the omelet and eggs over easy. They were both really good. The potatoes that came with it were very good. Crisp tasty... More
