The restaurant was really in an old rail/subway car. The pizza was delicious (they had other dinners and grinders on the menu as well). It was very relaxed, very casual, and the staff were great. We took a while to order, too much catching up with some friends that haven't seen each other in awhile, and the waiter was very... More

We visited Trackside with our 5 year old grandson who loves trains--and pizza. So obviously we think that's the perfect combo. The restaurant is in a former train passenger car and provides a great atmosphere for train fans of all ages. The pizza was good and service not bad. If you aren't a kid or a train fan, I suggest...

Located right next to the RR Tracks, a refurbished subway car houses what I think is the best pizza in town. If you can't get to Wooster Square in New Haven, this is the next best thing! Foxon Park Soda too.....

Place is small and has a funky feel to it. Waitstaff is very young but extremely nice. We have no problem with young people growing up around us. The Pizza is fantastic. Thin crust but now too chewy as we often find. New Haven style but not burned, perfect golden brown throughout. 7.50 for domestic pitchers. Reading a review above... More

we've been going to Trackside for years, good as any New Haven pie... tasty thin crust and fresh, basil and garlic is our favorite...The antipasto is loaded, certainly more than enough for one. Dont forget to try the Sangiovese for $2.50 a glass!!

We went there with the family before a concert and we loved it. The young lady was very friendly and had a great attitude. The pizza was delicious and it was not expensive. We got a warm thank you by the owner. Cool to eat in a train. You should go. Greetings from Canada.

We have had much better. Place really needs a cleaning up.I understand the ambiance of a railroad car but still. Paper on the... More

The place is out of the way but worth stopping by. The pizza was good and the bruschetta was excellent. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere was great.

New to the area, I didn't know this place existed, but I've been on the lookout for "our" pizza place. I saw it on a post-it at a clerk's office and decided to look it up when I got home. We stopped in for a quick dinner last night and this is now our go-to! It's small and super casual,... More

Trackside is one of the best pizza places in Wallingford, hands down, them and Christos are the two best in my opinion. Trackside is small, kind of cramped inside if it's busy, not much parking and could be hard to find. However, all these things make it the unique place it is with no real need to change. As long...
