It was a very busy day for the restaurant, and its staff. They did not know the crowd that would come on this Tuesday. They took care of all old and small and did a commendable job. I have owned small businesses and this process of SLAMMING OR BUS STOPPING AT THE FRONT DOOR. They really worked to get everyone taken care of and satisfied. I recently had a problematic occurance, but the manager there did not see the problem or how to fix, and this is training and employee attitude. at that place i was paying top dollar for top steak and got cold meat and no recognition of a problem existing. The junction Diner made all OK with us and our grandchildren and we will be back again and probably again, again. Regards Richard S.

Our experience at Junction Diner was A+ today as we have come to expect from previous visits. The owner is a hands on owner. Very helpful and accommodating. The food was excellent and our grandkids love going. The kids love watching their food delivered by train. There are train and buggy rides and a picture booth. We always enjoy going! The groupon is a bonus.

About The Junction Diner

The Junction Diner was born from a child's imagination. Kate and Brad's son Connor had just turned 1 and received a wooden train set. He played for well over an hour, delighting his parents, who had been searching for something that could keep their son's attention. The next step seemed as natural as a locomotive's forward momentum: they opened a train-themed restaurant to cater to parents and their kids.

Inside The Junction Diner, which has earned a Chicago's Best Family-Friendly Spots nomination, a long counter wraps around the room's center like a winding train track. Diners sit on either side, and servers move up and down the middle, carrying plates of food with playful, train-inspired names. Customers at the counter itself can even get their meals delivered by an actual train. The aptly titled "Lil Conductor's Menu" delights kids with mini burgers and cheese quesadillas, while older diners peruse "Box Car Burgers" made with certified Black Angus beef and "Junction Wraps" including the buffalo chicken, topped in buffalo sauce, veggies, and a choice of ranch dressing or blue cheese. Near the dining area, a large table with interactive model trains keeps kids busy while their parents finish meals.
