I have given this place 4 or 5 honest try's over a period of time and each time I eat there I am just not impressed at all. The food is simply average, that's the best I can say about it. When my husband asks me where I would like to go eat Boxcar is never my first, second or... More

Service was terrible took forever to get drinks. Had to ask for salad bar plates after waiting 20 minutes. Food was cold and skimpy, had to ask for the bill, and unfriendly staff. Will never go there again!

Ok food, ok options, kinda reminds you of a cracker barrel, but service has something that needs improvement! Was told different prices from a girl while ordering, and she wasn't even our waitress. Then when our waitress finally brought our check. It was different from what we were quoted, about $6 worth. When questioning our "waitress" about bill, we were... More

We've eaten here before and it's always been good and service great. Today at lunch, we waited a long time before our server ever came to our table. Unusual here. The salad bar was great, the burger was great, and the sweet tea was great.

We were in the area and came across this cute place for a late lunch. Not many cars in the large lot but it was almost 2pm. We entered to find a very unique space, all decked out to look like the inside of rail cars. Smiling folks all around with instant service, we were seated and immediately graced with... More

Good food, good prices, staff members are friendly and helpful. I had the tips and my friend had the salad bar. We were both happy with our choices.

Plentiful food served quickly, food was good. Complimentary bread was amazing! Very cute setting, would be great when traveling with kids. Seems to be a local favorite, we stopped for dinner, easy to get on and off I40. Cute place.

I enjoyed calling in my food at Boxcar Grille and picking it up. Food was ready when it was said to be and the staff were very friendly and courteous. The decor inside is very cool and would be a big hit with the kids. I will have to go back sometime and take the family. Food was excellent by... More

Scale 1 - 10. This was a 3. The salad bar was ok. Burger was dry. We had to go hunt down drink refills and 20 minutes later we had to hunt down our ticket to pay. This was our second try at this restaurant. There will not be a third.

Not much to write home about, it was close to the hotel and the atmosphere was good. I ordered Chili and grilled cheese so maybe I just ordered the wrong thing. The salad bar looked fresh and the sweet tea was good.
