A family gets a warm cup of coffee and a warm greeting from their server.

At Big Train, when we talk about family, we mean you. It’s true we’ve been family owned for 50 years, but that’s only half the story. What we really love is seeing customers we’ve known since they were kids bringing kids of their own in to enjoy our home cooking.

Whether you’re one of our classic car enthusiasts, the red hat ladies, or just a family enjoying a meal together, our customers are our family.

We’re not fussy. Just drop on in and pick your own table. The coffee is on and the grill is hot.

In February 2019, a new development on the corner of Nevada and Fillmore required us to move out of our building next to the old K-Mart that had been our home for nearly 40 years.

But not all change is bad! Our beautiful new location on Garden of the Gods Road has more seating capacity for those busy Sunday mornings, and we’ve added an extensive Salad Bar and outdoor patio, plus some exciting new menu choices.

Rashell Kolthoff married into the Family in 1996 to Jim “Jimmy” Kolthoff. Some of you may remember Jim, hanging out teasing the servers as he drank his coffee. Jim and Rashell had always hoped that one day they would get a chance to carry on the family tradition and run the Big Train. Tragically Jim passed away in a freak trucking accident in December 2015. So Rashell jumped at that opportunity when Cousin Reva asked her if she was ready to buy the restaurant in November 2019. Rashell knew she had to honor her late husband Jim’s dream and buy the restaurant and did so in January 2020. Rashell purchased the Big Train Family Restaurant From Cousin Reva. “It was Jim and I’s dream, I had to make it happen. ”
