Went there with friends. I had nachos as I had them the night before at Abuelos and they were fantastic, but here they were just average. I was disappointed. Service was really slow also. Kids love it because of the games, but they will drain...More

Have tried this establishment twice in last two months, food was not hot either time. Nachos appeared to be microwaved. The fried catfish was chewy like rubber & the sweet potato fries were not hot.More

It was a western themed peter piper. There is a large arcade and an attached bar. The smoke pervades the whole area. It seemed low class and loud! I didn't enjoy it as a place for kids.

We take our grandchildren here to let them play games and have dinner. Needless to say the food is always good and the kids have a great time. It's a good idea to show up early on a weekend night as it gets crowded quickly!

I had the queso/beef relleno. The pepper had a crust on the bottom and was open faced with queso, ground beef, then melted cheddar on top. This is the best relleno I've had in many moons. The guacamole was terrific as well. I hadn't been...More

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.
