If you like a big gooey breakfast and the nostalgia of a train dining car this is the place. It's crowded on the weekends. That's part of the fun.

Franks is the bomb for breakfast. Had a denver omelet and it is so good with the hash browns and sourdough toast. The line might be Ling but its fun meeting new friends and its worth the wait.
