New restaurant to deliver meals via train 

All Aboard will serve fast-casual food with a healthy tilt. Again, by train.

Restaurateur Vince Schallenberg, until recently a partner in Corky's BBQ, plans to open a new restaurant at 6813 Cantrell in early April. All Aboard will serve fast-casual food with a healthy tilt, Schallenberg said — grilled sandwiches, wraps, pitas, salads, soups, turkey burgers. Just how fast the food arrives to customers depends on All Aboard's novel delivery system: Diners, Schallenberg said, will receive their meals via a train that will travel on two oval tracks six feet seven inches above 1800 square-foot dining room. Without ever stopping, the train will transfer orders to diners' booths via a hydraulic mechanism. A logistics computer system will power the operation.

Schallenberg said he plans to keep the restaurant open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. He plans also to serve beer and wine.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
