When I visited Kansas City in May of 2014, I read about a peculiar restaurant that I suspected would be worth my time to try out. It is called Fritz’s, and it has two locations in Kansas City, KS as well as a location in the Crown Center in Kansas City, MO. The restaurant is certainly one of a kind as patrons place their orders by telephone and then have their food delivered to them by train! The restaurant’s website explains this system was developed by its founder in order to reduce labor costs and wasn’t necessarily meant to evoke a train theme, but over the years it has gained a reputation for this theme! The train that delivers your food is far from the only train related thing in the place. There are model trains running around the entire restaurant, the menus have a train motif, and so on. I don’t remember the food being particularly memorable, but that might be on account of my not eating meat, and burgers seem to be their specialty. But if you find yourself in Kansas City, it is definitely worth checking out!
I made a video of my food being delivered when I was there but I can’t seem to post it successfully to this site, so I am sharing two other videos that I found on YouTube from other customers so you get a sense of what the food delivery system here is like.
