I had not been to this well-known diner in a long time, having heard many mixed reviews, but decided to give it a try. I met a friend, here, for a late breakfast & loved it! We timed our visit to avoid the early breakfast...More

I hadnt been here in years, and im happy to say its still great. The steak sandwich was very tasty, the portions were generous, and the prices were fair. Free refills on soda. And of course the charm of a 1930s style prefab diner.

Very diverse menu with standard diner fare and more. I had the chicken cordon bleu sandwich and it was excellent, with marinated chicken and tasty ham and melted cheese - done perfectly. Excellent fries, too. Worth a stop!

An interesting diner styled like a train dining car. Kitschy, fun with many, many menu choices. Best milkshakes in town. This visit was for dinner. Both Turkey dinner and wrap sandwich were delicious. Look forward to our next visit.

Rochester classic. A must go to at least once-we go regularly. This is a train car diner. A classic. The food is very good. Has some unique character for a diner menu. The wait staff was good. Atmosphere is pretty cool!!

I always stop here for lunch or breakfast when in Rochester . Prices have crept steadily higher though, so now it is a trendy occasional indulgence rather than a daily hangout for neighborhood folk. Not a good choice for the handicapped as there are steps...More
