My husband had the Rueben and he said it was the worst one he had ever eaten. The corn beef was soooo Fatty! Food was served on small plates so portions were small- no we did not order from the small plate list.

Service was slow and very poor. One of the items requested didn't come as ordered because they ran out of an ingredient. Instead of giving it to the customer without saying anything, you should ask the customer if there is something else they would like instead.

I think that the french fries & onion rings should be made from scratch too like all your other menu items. No sense not doing this when you take the time to make everything else yourself. French fries are one of the most common items ordered and homemade ones would be a big draw for returning customers.

From Our Editors

Completed in 1869 with the final blow upon the golden spike, the first transcontinental railroad made nationwide travel commonplace, introducing passengers to seldom-experienced regions of their country. The Boxcar Grill’s traditional American fare gives diners the chance to taste transcontinental standards without leaving their seats. Using the locomotive as its logo, the restaurant celebrates the tradition of travel by featuring popular local dishes from across the United States. Avocados and wine make their way up from California, and chipotle peppers give dishes a southwestern kick without the need for spurs. Northeastern chowders bring East Coast flair, along with tastes of Philly in the form of the city’s popular cheesesteak.
