Super yummy food and my 4 year old loved the train "ride"! The BBQ Pulled Pork with slaw was fantastic! We also enjoyed the Gold Miners potatoes, kinda like mini potato pancakes. It is right across the street from the beach. Definitely a don't miss!

This little train caboose is easy to find on Highway 1, near the intersection of Route 92. They offer an extensive list of delicious hot sandwiches for such a small kitchen.

the food here is hands-down THE MOST DELICIOUS !!!!!! I don't know what they put in the Mac n cheese but it was by far my favorite. I love trying unique foods and the mushroom grilled cheese far exceeded my expectations! Sending my taste buds to a whole new planet! Will definitely be returning!!!! :)

On of our friend recommended this place, so we gave it a try. The setting is funny as it is a box car, we really enjoyed watching the plates and all the decoration. The staff was friendly and funny as well! We tried two chilly-dogs and oh gosh, they were a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I can't remember the price, but as far as... More

OK, it's a locomotive boxcar by the side of the highway. Painted bright yellow. In a mini-mall. Let NONE of this fool you, Daddy-O's is a complete treat!!!

We drove out from San Francisco after reading about this place on the net (back in the UK) and it was worth the trip. Great food, reasonably priced in an unusual setting. Exactly what we had hoped for! Oh and those little hash brown type things with the seasoned mayo, yum.

My son spotted the Caboose when we first got into town. So we decided to check it out. LOVED the pulled pork BBQ sandwich. The meat was tasty with just the right amount of bite to the sauce. I was surprised and impressed with how soft the french roll that it was served on. My son loved his hamburger and... More
