This is a great place to hang out with friends. They have all the arcade games you would want. There usually is a food truck there also. It’s so much to do here, it’s easy to get caught and spend a whole afternoon.

Great place to go with friend, have a drink and enjoy some arcade games. Best part is most games were one token (25 cents). Drinks were reasonable too! Great place to visit. Will be back for sure.

Boxcar is a bar above all else, but while we're otherwise strictly 21+, we do allow children who are accompanied by a parent anytime before 9pm daily.

They do not serve food. There are usually good trucks outside. You can look at the website to see which food trucks are there and when. They do have complementary popcorn.
