Kids and adults alike delight in the Fritz’s family-friendly dining experience. Dedicated to trains, the city’s original form of transportation, Fritz’s delivers tasty hamburgers, fries, chicken tenders, and more via a model train system that winds throughout the restaurant.
Pick up the phone at your booth and place your food order with the “operator.” After a brief wait, the food is deposited at your table by several train cars.
On your way out, pose for a picture at the restaurant’s train-themed entrance—don’t forget to pick up a cardboard conductor’s hat.
