A Restaurant for Train Lovers
When you walk into Pizza King Station and Pizza King Avon, you’ll immediately notice that it’s train-themed. The booths are decorated to look like a train. There are train signs in the lobby. And, of course, there is a miniature toy train that winds its way from booth to booth, delivering drinks.
The train tracks sit behind a plexiglass window at your table, with a door that you can flip open once the train stops. Once you’re ready to order, you can push an intercom button, and your server will take your drink and food order. When your drinks are ready, be on the lookout for the train! The train will deliver your drinks and straws.
When you need a drink refill, just push the intercom button (or let your server know), and a new beverage will make its way down the railroad tracks! The train at Pizza King is so unique and fun and takes a dine-out experience to the next level!
A Kid-friendly Restaurant
Unfortunately, the train will not deliver your food via train (but wouldn’t that be neat?)! But on the Pizza King menu, you’ll find lots of kid-friendly food options, like pizza (a thin-crust, tavern-style pizza), sandwiches, and pasta. There is also a kids menu for kids younger than 12 years, including options like a personal pizza, chicken tenders, and mac & cheese.
Another thing that makes these locations a great place for families is that each booth has its own TV, set to a kid-friendly station. This is a great option to have when the grownups need a break and the drink train has left the station.
Don’t forget to bring some change (or a couple of dollars) to play the few old-school arcade games in the lobby. You’ll find a claw machine, candy crane and even Mrs. Pac Man!
