When the weather permits, Traxx Restaurant expands from its smallish interior to a more spacious Southern California terrace. Traxx is the main restaurant operating in Los Angeles Union Station. Visually, it has an art deco feel and a menu that won’t break the bank. 

In fact, the cuisine at Traxx is Americana and quite possibly the best train depot fare in the country. Give it a try next time your train takes you to LA. 

Traxx Bar & Restaurant since 1977.

Tourists like the inside patio, but there's also inside seating and outside terrace weather permitting.  Fantastic people watching perch.  This couple split a salad and a steak sandwich before taking the Pacific Surfliner back to San Diego.
