What You'll Get
Cross-country train travel appeals to many Americans, as it affords an unmatched opportunity for sightseeing and trains that run cross-country always maintain a tight caboose. Chomp into a caravan of eats with today's Groupon to the Red Caboose Café in Clovis. Choose between two options:
- For $8, you get $16 worth of inventive American dinner fare, served Thursday through Saturday, 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- For $8, you get $16 worth of dine-in or carryout box car pizza. Dine-in is served Sunday through Wednesday, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.; carryout is served Sunday through Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Photographs of trains cover the burnt-red walls of this family-friendly establishment, which cooks up all-American cuisine with a creative twist. From the Red Caboose's outdoor patio, patrons can enjoy a view of the saloon's surrounding pastures while dining on down-home evening eats, such as the pot-roast dinner served with mashed potatoes, gravy, caramelized carrots, and onions ($13.95). On Friday and Saturday nights, waitresses sidle swiftly through a maze of red checkered four tops, carrying the current evening specialty: prime-rib dinner accompanied by mashed potatoes and an unruly band of steamed vegetables ($18.85).
Pizza enthusiasts can opt for the box car pizza menu, which displays the restaurant's diversity of cheese-topped discs. Specialty pies ($16.95 for a 12") include the Old-Fashioned Combo, which is coated with pepperoni, italian sausage, bell pepper, red onion, and black olives, and the Train Wreck, a pie vandalized with vegetable and meat toppings. While waiting for flat spheres to melt and bubble, children and baby-toothed adults can enjoy Red Caboose's model train, which choo-choos in a figure eight around the restaurant, occasionally stopping for directions and throat lozenges.
