Review: It’s fun to watch the short order cooks whip ‘em up and send ’em out but the burger is average and very messy with a too big tomato slice and “wish it was better” chili. Come for the train car experience and so you can say you went but that’s it.

burger and fries in a box is becoming a rarity, but that might be a good thing
