This is truly a unique dining experience for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have a fantastic breakfast menu. The biscuits and gravy are so good. For lunch they have their Stoby Hoagie, which is a sandwich that you build by the meats, cheeses, vegetables and bread. They have a terrific grilled chicken salad. They offer a grill at night. There is a miniature train set that runs through the restaurant with an engine and several cars. The track is suspended around and through the walls to the other seating. The kids love it and it is a fun addition to your dining experience. Stoby's is by the train tracks at 405 W. Parkway. There is an old fashion train whistle outside for the kids or the young at heart located on the dining car. This really does bring back memories and an old caboose is just across the tracks in front of the refurbished train depot. It's recommended to end your meal with one of several delicious pies. The Possum Pie is really yummy but they also have a Coconut, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter and Chocolate, Italian Crème Cake and Strawberry Cake that are all to die for. You can buy a whole pie if you love it and want to take a bit of Stoby's with you. Really a fun place to eat and families and children are welcome. No alcohol is served.

This was a fun place to have lunch -- in an old railroad dining car. We tried their famous "cheese dip". The tuna wrap was tasty and then we went for a big piece of their "possum pie." Sounds bad, but tastes delicious. Our server was helpful and friendly. It was a good stop on our exploring trip around Arkansas.

Can't wait to come home and eat here. It is a part of coming home. I love the pita bread sandwiches, but most of all the cheese dip. It is a specialty for sure. Friendly service even with a busy lunch hour. Mom said, "Coconut pie was great!" Will be back when back in town. Thanks to you.
