We went to Jax at the Tracks for lunch on a very snowy day. There was a wait to get seated and the "waiting area" was full so we had to stand in foyer (very cold), but it was worth the wait! The menu has a large selection for all tastes. The service was very good as well as the... More

I think they forgot our order because it took 45 minutes to get food while others around us got theirs in 20 minutes. And it was luke warm. I had hoped after waiting so long that it would be worth the wait, but it was just okay.

I rarely take the time to say something negative about a place, but this was an exception. After finding out that this place was on Triple-D, I was stoked about eating here. It seems however, you have be Guy Fieri to get decent service. Our waitress Amanda was pleasant and bubbly when she arrived at our table. It was pretty... More

The best Lobster Macaroni . I went there for lunch it was very cold outside so it was so nice to sit and eat in a warm place but I was so surprised on how good the food is and the service was amazing

Milk shake is good after that, not to much to this place. Neat old diner feel but overall food is just not that good.

Breakfast lunch and dinner is served her with a variety of menu options and the portions are healthy. We went for breakfast. I had a veggie omelet and my partner tried pancakes.both were good yet nothing to rave about. The restaurant was quite busy and the service was fast and polite

Had breakfast here and the food was good. Interesting specials. Wait staff was friendly, with helpful recommendations, but we did have to wait a decent amount of time to order and then get served. We were not in any type of hurry and it was not an issue for us--but to those who insistent on immediate and prompt service, this... More

Stopped for breakfast on my way to Southern California. I had the special hash. My plate was full, very tasty and unusual. Never has a brisket hash, but it was spicy and had lots of meat and potatoes plus two pieces of toast. The coffee was hot and strong. Nice interior but showing it's age.

We took our son to Woodward Tahoe located at Boreal ski facillity. We drove up from South Lake Tahoe. This restaurant is next to railroad tracks in downtown Truckee. It was featured previously on Food Network. My Woman got Paleo options and raved about them. I went for Thanksgiving plate. I did have to start out with a large made... More
