Made our annual visit to the area for the Boxing Hall of Fame weekend and had breakfast there every day we could. Love this place ! Chuck, Dave (Mr. Personality) and Kim are terrific and not only is the food terrific with large portions and...very reasonable prices, they make you feel like you’re at home ! I highly recommend you stop in !More

Every year my cousin and I come to the area, Canastota, for the Boxing Hall of Fame week, and this is our breakfast place all week, every day. Chuck and Dave are the greatest ! Terrific guys who serve up delicious meals with huge portions...all at a very reasonable price. We come here from NJ every year and one of the highlights of our trip is breakfast every day at Choo Choo Charlies ! Give it a try - you'll get hooked like we did !More

5 of us stopped in on Sunday Morning. This is a small family diner that is located on Main St in Downtown Oneida. They are open for breakfast and lunch. Everything is cooked from scratch. The owner and his wife cook and their daughter is...the waitress. Great friendly smile and welcome. I had the Western Omelet...best one I've ever had. The onions and peppers and ham were thinly sliced and cooked perfectly. The home fries were very crispy and delicious . Bacon and sausage were also great. We will definitely repeat.More

Choo Choo Charlie's is located in the center of Oneida, NY and only minutes away from the casino in Verona. Parking is on the street. CCC's was the former Murphy's, but the owner and cook (Chuck) was Gary Murphy's cook for many years and has...now assumed ownership. One will see many locals as well as visitors when entering. The diner is clean and uncluttered featuring tables and a long counter. This is strictly a family run operation with a spouse and brother serving diners. Sometimes Chuck's dad is there, also. The point is that when a customer walks in the door, they are greeted warmly and served cheerfully in this family centered establishment. The diner features all the usual meals and serves breakfast and lunch. However, unlike the former owner, the restaurant is open 7 days a week instead of M-F only. All the food is cooked on the spot or home-cooked. CCC's is definitely not a McDiner. This is a slice of good, old fashioned Americana. The food is cooked perfectly, the service is excellent and after a few visits, they will know your name. Prices are very reasonable and the quality of food is very good. Instead of paying high prices, the writer would recommend visitors to the nearby casino to visit Choo Choo Charlie's for breakfast or lunch. You will not be disappointed.More
