Bygone Restaurants: Victoria Station

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do you remember the restaurant where you dined inside actual train cars and the signature dish was prime rib? There were two Kansas City locations of this international chain, which had 97 restaurants during its heyday of the 1970s and 1980s. The Kansas City locations were at 103rd and Wornall in south Kansas City, Missouri, and one in the River Market area.

You entered each Victoria Station restaurant via a Caboose. I think I visited their locations once or twice in the early 80s, when I was a teenager. I recall a mostly meat and potatoes and salad menu. I think they call this “American.” Think Chiles or Applebees in a train that doesn’t go anywhere.

What readers remember about the restaurant:

“A place that felt fancy, made to look like a series of railroad cars. There was a location at 103rd and Wornall in the 80s. In our family, it was a place to go on a special occasion. I think they were famous for prime rib. Part of a chain if I remember right.”

Looks like the one that was located in Waldo.
