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.
