I often take advantage of the specials they offer on Monday and Tuesday for game play. My kids and I find the games better than at Main Event. Erik M.

I have gone many times just for a drink with friends and family, services has always been good. Severs are always friendly, kids get to enjoy themselves and so do the adults.

We wanted to take our son who is four years old somewhere he could have fun and play games. This was definitely the place to have fun. He had a ball and we also ate lunch and the burgers were awesome. Great family fun place.

I frequent the restaurant during work lunch and sometimes just to meet up with my kids. I love the service we constantly get. Sometimes I feel like I know them!!! Chips and salsa are my favorite. Anytime I have ever had an issue they always fix the situation with professionalism and great service. Thanks for the great atmosphere.

Serving both chicken and beef fajitas and then added many traditional American and authentic Mexican dishes, prepared by Lupe Gonzales.The 50th Street Caboose opened in August of 1990 at the corner of 50th Street and Slide Road. It was designed by managing partner Phil Bradley and owner Bob Jordan with a few twists to enhance the proven Caboose concept.A midway with over 100 games and a redemption center stocked full of toys, novelties, and giant stuffed animals help to enhance the fun atmosphere. Serving the same fine Mexican dishes with a few new twists from George Amaya.
