Just across the tracks….

A great day in the office, but it’s time for lunch —-
So let’s walk from my office across the tracks to JAX!

JAX AT The TRACKS is a Diner brought to Truckee in 1992 by San Francisco Restaurateur Robert Carey.

 This original diner was moved from Philadelphia 3600 miles on a flatbed trailer.  It’s said that because of some Highway restrictions on the Philadelphia Turnpike, the diner went to jail for awhile.  It’s original name was the Birmingham Grille, a 1948 Kullman Diner.  It finally made it to Truckee, was totally re-furbished and a retro addition to add more seating with the great style of the orginal.  It’s always been known for great specials, and was showcased by Guy Fieri of Food Network!

While having lunch I stumbled upon some locals having lunch.  They’ve lived in Truckee for over 30 years and according to KenCl “this is their new hangout”.   You need to checkout the daily specials — Chicken Pot Pie,  Monte Cristo Sandwich and the old standby the Triple Decker Club.  Jax has homemade breads and jams.

Locals get 10% of their fare and so do those who Yelp or Facebook the Diner from their table

– so show the world how great the food is and you get a deal!

While enjoying lunch, I spoke with SarahLise, the General Manager.  She was getting ready to sample some new beers in anticipation of some exciting changes and events.  This summer will showcase beer tastings at the new outside beer garden.  Be sure to stop by and sample the new summer menu.  The staff is very friendly and willing ready to serve you!  My favorite breakfast is the Crab Cake Benedict – yom, yom, yom!   What’s your favorite breakfast?

I bet they can make it….   Check out the menu at:  www.jaxtruckee.com.    I’m meeting Sargent Joe Friday tomorrow……..
