Good old comfort food and a fun atmosphere! In the midst of 15 feet tall snow backs was a toasty fire pit out front to welcome you. Our server Collin was outstanding. We'll be back.

This was my go-to eatery during my stay in Truckee. It is just down the street from the hostel where i was staying. I loved the Truckee burger, so simple, so well executed. Their breakfasts are great for the morning hangover. Their milkshakes and desserts were hard to resist and worth it every time I caved in. relatively inexpensive but... More

We have dined here many times for a late lunch/early dinner (less crowded). The burgers and sandwiches we have tried were all great from the Thanksgiving sandwich, Rueben, BLT to grilled cheese. Meatloaf is very good too. They have a good variety also including steaks, chicken and pastas. Nice they serve beer and wine, since most diners do not. Service... More

We had several people tell us to go here and it was on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. It's a great location in a cute little town. We split a breakfast. The hash-browns were amazing. Crispy and nicely seasoned. The chicken fried steak was big enough for two and they even put it on two separate plates for us. The homemade... More

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.

Thank Jack P
