“Best place in the Hub!!!!!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

I've been coming to the 50th Street Caboose for a few years now, and the reason for my return is the absolute exceptional quality food and the commendable service. The friendliest wait staff, by far in West Texas. Now, it not only the wait staff that is commendable, but their Management is still a few levels above perfection. Brian is by far one of, if not the best member of management at this location. If you are not satisfied with anything at any point Brian, (with reasonable cause) will do everything in his power to get things right.
The game room is filled with up to date games and prizes that is sure to keep the whole family entertained. So take my advice and take some time and visit the 50th Street Caboose and bring the whole family, I promise YOU will NOT be disappointed!

“Long waits, mediocre food”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Went here with the family to celebrate a birthday. I think we waited a little over an hour just to get a table. This place is a mixture of Chuck E cheese and Dave and Busters. Their food and atmosphere tries to be similar to Dave and busters, but it misses the mark. Their queso tasted like cheese from a can, and I'm certain it was. Their salads left a lot to be desired. The kid's meals were the same, nothing special that you couldn't get at any fast food restaurant.
Their games are OK, but they have little selection, their prizes are of Chuck E cheese cheapness with Dave and Buster ticket prices.Honestly the only highlight of the evening was the gentlemen going around to the tables making balloon animals for the kids. I guess if you don't know what you're missing with places like this that actually do this kind of thing well, then you might think this place is great, but it's not. We honestly regretted our decision in going there and probably won't go back.
