This is one of those yummy hole in the wall locations. The food is really good, its a homey atmosphere and the prices are not bad.

Very casual and a fun place to go with friends. A landmark in old downtown Frisco and great food. The fried catfish is about the best around

You order at the counter where you walk in and then the order is brought to your table. The atmosphere is like an old style train depot, hence the name. The food is homey and well prepared. The menu is a little sparse, but what I had was well prepared and tasty.

Was in Frisco for business and stopped in for lunch. Got there about 11:45. Ordered the plate lunch special which was chicken spaghetti, corn, salad, and roll. Food was hot and fresh and super good. Shortly after noon the place got pretty busy, so come a lil early.

This is a wonderful local restaurant! I had a baby spinach salad, with grilled chicken and an herb dressing. I was on of the best salads that I have ever had. The building is the old train depot and the people are very friendly. I look forward to going back there.

Thank bamgeo
