Anybody , anybody?
I totally remember it- My Grandmother used to take me there all the time as a child. Of course I loved it then. There was another restaurant we went to too that I only vaguely remember- family style - in Centerport on the North side of 25A- maybe where the motel is now? Anyone remember the name????

The Choo Choo was very cool, I remember going there in the "way back" of my parents Plymouth Fury wagon (seatbelts, what seatbelts)???

The current occupant of the space is Tomo Hibachi. Home

A lot of the bar-restaurants are the same ones I remember being there when I was a kid - (Canterbury Ales, Meehan's, etc). Golden Dolphin diner has been there a long time.

I think the name was something like Soviaro?

I'm still getting over the Rose and Thistle being torn down.

Hi! I'm dating myself now, but my grandparents used to live in Huntington and when I was 4 or 5 my grandfather would take my sister and I to the Hamburger Choo-Choo. It was heaven. When you're tiny, a burger and shake with your grandfather might be wonderful, but to sit at the counter and have your food come out on the train, was GREAT. I've often wished I could go back, or bring my daughter. Thanks for making my day
