“Ice Cream Dream!”

Box Car Cafe & Cones, Inc
Ranked #5 of 5 Dessert in Bryson City
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 6, 2018

Stopped here after riding the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. German Chocolate Cake ice cream is by far the best ice cream that money can buy. Good variety of other desserts. Banana Splits! Good parking available close by. Within walking distance of other shops, etc.

I ate here with a party of 8 including two children under 4. The food was great, and it came out fast, and the staff was very polite. The bonus is the ice cream shop next door really hit the spot after a tasty lunch with friends.

My husband and I happened upon this shoppe while strolling around downtown Bryson City. The staff was friendly and courteous and the ice cream was delicious! It was a great place to just hang out and relax while enjoying some wonderful ice cream. It was also a treat to see the rock art on the far wall. The artist has done a beautiful job using something many of us pay little to no attention to.

What a treat! The absolute best burger and fries I’ve had in ages. Definitely the best burger I’ve had in Bryson City. The service was super friendly. Restaurant has a cozy cafe feel. Located next to the GSMR Depot. Will return and tell everyone.

Located in front of the train depot. We arrived just before the lunch crowd. Good thing because the small eating area fills fast but good thing is there are outdoor picnic tables. We ordered one taco salad. Which was ok but was lacking a few essential items (avocado, jalapeño, cilantro, to name a few) We also ordered a philly sandwich which was also passing when your hungry but not special. We did notice most people getting the cheeseburger which looked fantastic and you could tell that this is the house favorite. Onion rings were excellent! Drinks were served in the other side of the restaurant by the ice-cream bar, so the line consisted of both patrons which can cause a backup when busy. Staff was friendly and working as fast as they could but when its busy in there its overwhelming for them. A little extra help for 2 hours or during lunch hour might help them to stay on top of things.
