We are surprised at the good reviews! Three of us had lunch at The Red Caboose and found nothing to brag about. Cute--only if you like railroad clutter. The food was only fair. We would not go back and wish we had not gone in...More

Found this restaurant listed and decided to press on from Lexington to Clifton Forge in search of a late lunch while en route to Lewisburg WV. Glad we waited to experience this cute little spot. We enjoyed the friendly courteous service and good hearty food....More

I had a chicken salad sandwich that was probably the best I have ever had. My husband had a terrific Reuben. The server was so busy and the only one working, but she was smiling and did a great job.

Our family has a vacation home in Covington and this is a must stop for every visit. Best burger around! The waitress is always very friendly and service is what you expect from a cook as you spot. Definitely worth a try.

The best "sloppy dawg" in the entire world. Homemade chilli and coleslaw, amazing fried pickles. And had the pleasure of talking with the young engergic waitress during my meal and had a ball. The best meal on my trip to Allegeny Mountains in Virginia.
