All Aboard Diner is a train themed restaurant where food is delivered to your seat at the counter by train (tables are also available, but without train delivery). There is also a large train set at the front of the restaurant with buttons so kids can control sounds and moving parts.

Location: 1510B West 75th St., Downers Grove, IL

Phone: 630-322-8960

Monday – Saturday 11:00 am – 8:00 pm
Sunday 11:00 am – 7:00 pm

Parking: Free

Bathrooms: There are private men’s and women’s bathrooms. There are changing tables and diaper disposals in both, in addition to a stool so younger kids can reach the sink and soap, and a hook for hanging bags or coats.

Nursing areas: There are no specific nursing areas.

Handicapped/stroller accessibility: The aisles are wide and could easily fit a stroller, but the restaurant often gets busy so it could be difficult to maneuver. All Aboard Diner is a peanut free environment.

Other amenities: There are pegs for hanging coats toward the back of the restaurant near the bathrooms. There are two tvs playing Thomas the Train, coin operated games and rides, and souvenirs available for sale. There is a party room for birthday parties.

Menu: Standard stuff – burgers, sandwiches, soup, and salad, plus beer and wine, and desserts. Prices are pretty reasonable; a “Junior Conductor” (kid’s) meal is $5.25. The All Aboard Diner menu is available to view online.

Special events: “Pancakes” the clown performs every Monday night from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Face painting and balloon creations are available.

We paid: Approximately $27.00, but you’ll probably pay more for a family of four. We lucked out and got a $25.00 credit for $12.00 from Living Social. Our total bill, including what we tipped, without the Living Social credit was about $42.00. We got two “Junior Conductor” meals, John got a burger and drink, and I got soup, salad, and a drink.

Our experience:
We arrived at 11:00 am on a Saturday, just as they were opening. We stayed for about an hour and by the time we left the counter was pretty full. We’ve been there before on weekdays and weekends and we’ve always gotten a seat at the counter without waiting, but we may have just been lucky. If you’re going on a weekend day I’d recommend going early if you want to ensure a seat at the counter.
The food was good and the prices are reasonable. The waitstaff are always pleasant and really seem to be having fun and enjoying all the kids. Our waitress was very helpful and another waitress came over to talk to our kids.
The bathrooms were nice; clean and very kid-friendly.
What boy doesn’t love trains? I love that the entire restaurant it train themed, including the tracks painted on the floor. Dexter was mesmerized by the train the circles the restaurant along the wall. Both boys loved having food delivered by the train and spent a lot of time at the front of the restaurant watching the train, and pushing buttons and watching all the parts moving.


  1. There are several added benefits of your child possessing a Train Tables in their playroom. A few of these benefits are problem fixing, the blossoming of their creativeness, and an knowing of easy devices.

  2. What a great concept for a kids restaurant!
