Went here with my fiancé and two kids. They loved it, I thought the food was decent. The diner is cute but definitely not the cleanest. Would recomend though because they raved about the food.

Have only eaten their one time and the food was very average. The restaurant is in an old train car. The area we were sitting in had poor air conditioning and the car smelled odd.
