D.M. Register calls Railroad Bill’s ‘The East Village’s best-kept secret’

The Des Moines Register called Railroad Bill's Dining Car "the East Village's best-kept secret" in a very nice write up posted on its website on Wednesday

The Register article had good things to say about the simplicity, affordability and quality of our menu.

Railroad Bill's "is the perfect place to have time-honored diner food that's fast, inexpensive, filling and delicious," the article said.

The Register article goes on to detail the role of Railroad Bill's and neighbor Raccoon Forks Trading Company as Raccoon Forks businesses. Both businesses provide jobs and job training to individuals with disablities and other barriers to employment.

"Plus, your breakfast or lunch goes toward a good cause," the article said. 

The article appreciated the atmosphere at Railroad Bill's created by our nearly 100-year old building (originally home to the American Railway Express Company) and our passion for historic preservation. 

"It still has its original wood floors, giving even more character to the already charming space," it said. 

We truly appreciate the exposure and kind words and want to thank the Register for visiting!
