We LOVED the food on Amtrak, especially the flatiron steak. PERFECTLY cooked, and fork-tender.

@Driver20 @SusanHighley @DanielLilly, there's also a GREAT pizza place right near Chicago's Union Station called Beggar's, and they will deliver to the Metropolitan Lounge!

The flatiron steaks are the best I've ever eaten!

@Driver20 , they meant an online tour at Amtrak.com.  The roomettes are the smallest cabin available.

@Evilkitty, the food is absolutely TERRIFIC onboard. At the Amtrak website, you can take a look at the menu for your train. I heartily recommend the flatiron steak, which I had TWICE on  our trip back in 2011!

My wife is disabled so we had a disabled cabin on the Empire Builder. She wanted to sleep, so our car attendant very kindly let me use an empty roomette cabin to read and listen to music, to daydream, and just stare at the lovely scenery outside.

@AZDesertGal  Neither my wife or I had any food issues, except maybe the chicken was a little overdone. Otherwise, the food is WONDERFUL, freshly prepared, esp the flatiron steak!

@zook We never heard other passengers after we went to bed in our room.
