“A Little Piece Of Willits”
Reviewed 20 February 2011

Feb. is not really the last date of my visit. its been over a year now since i have been able to get back to Willits but, i spent almost every summer out there as a child. Every visit my family made to see my grandparents my grandpa, Ed Burton, always made sure that we kids made it to the Loose Caboose for lunch. Last time i was out there i brought a friend with me and did the same. it's not a very big restaurant but the food is wonderful the staff is always warm and helpful and i truly feel it is within itself, a piece of Willits. even if you don't have time to sit down and eat i recommend you get it to go. its not right there on 101 but it is definatley worth hunting down if you have never been there. In my opinion no trip to willits is complete without A: a trip to the Loose Caboose and B: a trip to the country skillet.

“Excellent restaurant in Willits”
Reviewed 9 March 2007

Having grown up in Willits, I have seen many restaurants come and go. One of the great ones that has stuck around is the Loose Caboose. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is very relaxed. The waiters/waitresses are wonderfully friendly and attentive to your culinary desires. If you are traveling up/down Highway 101, or just visiting the area, make sure you stop off at The Loose Caboose for a relaxing, delicious meal!

“Great lunch spot!!”
Reviewed 27 April 2005

If you're looking for a great lunch spot in Willits, try the Loose Caboose Cafe! It's located on little street off of Main St. (kind of across from the Country Mall). You'll need to look for the sign under the wisteria vine. There is outdoor seating available or you can dine inside. The cafe has a railroad theme and is decorated very tastefully. They have wonderful sandwiches and salads. My personal favorite is the French Dip! They are only open for lunch and the place can get very busy, so you may want to make reservations. But if you don't still stop in and see if you can find a table. The food is great, as is the setting. YUM!
