    Floating sushi boat restaurants are popular in many places...



    Conveyor belts are often used in place of the boats...

    Nice. Interestingly, the Fritz's Railroad Restaurant setup was not originally intended to be characterized as a train, but popular opinion turned into a novelty theme.

    The patented system was primarily intended to help with the shortage of labor which was a constant headache as he tried to operated both restaurants efficiently. Once the system, nicknamed the "Skat Kat," was installed at the 18th street location in the early 1970's, however, people began calling it a train. At first Fritz played down the railroad aspect of the Skat Kat, but he eventually decided to go with this popular theme. Train memorabilia and engineer's hats for the kids enhanced this concept. Now we can't imagine it any other way.

    YEP!
    KCMO This is 'ours'! A different type of novelty, some nice memoborablia, meniborabla, menoradabalai, cool stuff on the walls. Fun for kids, foods OK. I'd rather have a cute waitress. Even if she can't spell memorabia.
