This railroad-theme restaurant that's been here since 1924, always jammed with moms-'n'-kids at lunch. An electric choo-choo runs around the dining area on a track just below the ceiling, pulling three cars with a couple of Beanie Baby passengers. Some railroad-style lanterns, enameled RR logo signs and photos of vintage trains add to the d�cor. On the menu, you'll find "train track" waffle-cut french fries, burgers, thin-crust and deep-dish pizza, salads, club sandwiches, a few Mexican items, gyros and sodas, sundaes and shakes from the adjoining Sweet Shop. To drink, sip on soda-fountain favorites such as cherry Coke, Green River, phosphates, etc. Next door, ice cream is scooped up in cones dipped in chocolate and non-pareils.
