I'm always looking for a dish that's not mainstream and we found at Whistle Stop. My friend and I both had the Train Wreck and it was awesome! A large crushed baked potato loaded with grilled onions, mushrooms and cheese. But that's not all. You then choose your meat topping. Chicken tenders, steak, pulled pork or shrimp. We both went...

Quick, efficient service - one of us had the lunch special, the other a triple salad plate. The triple salad plate came with a scoop each of... More

Fresh food, large portions and friendly service defines this little restaurant in Linden. But they don't have decaf coffee!! Desserts homemade and delicious. Specials offered during the week. Great place for lunch!!

While passing through middle Alabama, my wife and I happened to be in Linden, Al. at lunch time and ran across the J & K Whistle Stop restaurant. It is a delightful place with attentive staff and excellent, freshly prepared food. The salad tasted like it was fresh from the garden. The portions are large, and the price is very... More

A delightful little family restaurant. Very friendly staff and excellent food. A good place to stop for lunch (as we did). Ask the waitress about the framed puzzles depicting various trains. Just a very nice, very reasonably priced family run restaurant.
