First time visit here with friends. Very popular destination for folks because the wait was a bit lengthy but worth it nonetheless. Huge selection on the menu. Quality food!!

We had dinner at Boxcar Grille. My husband had the salad bar (the best thing about this place was the fruit salad on the salad bar) and my daughter and I both had a buffalo chicken wrap. The salad bar looked fresh. If I return, I'll eat the salad bar. The chicken wrap was mediocre. The decor reminded me of... More

We waited a long time to have our order taken and then our food served. The country music was quite loud over the speakers. The food was just okay.

I ordered the BLT which came loaded with bacon, and served on texas toast. My partner ordered a wrap. We both ordered iced tea. My BLT had great flavor in the bacon, but the texas toast made it really chewy. The iced tea was on the weak side. This was an OK place to stop along the interstate, but the... More

The menu offers something for everyone. Our party had burgers, salad bar and chopped steak. All were generous portions and tasty, made to order. Meal is started with homemade bread and honey, do good, but leave room for your meal!

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
