Jax at the Tracks Diner in Truckee California

in #tasteem4 years ago


The menu at Jax at the Tracks ranges from common diner fare to fusions of old and new. The classic eggs Benedict are just what you would expect with poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and hollandaise sauce on toasted English muffins.

The crab cake eggs Benedict, offered for breakfast and lunch, represent the flair and fusion that sets Jax apart from other diners. Two Maryland Blue crab cakes are grilled and seasoned and placed atop a toasted English muffin. Poached eggs and hollandaise sauce complement the crab cakes. A fresh avocado half, sliced in a very unique fashion, tops the dish. Both dishes are served with hash browns. The crab cake eggs Benedict are just one example of new twists on old favorites. The menu is filled with exciting new foods to try.

Jax Atmosphere

This is certainly not a dark and dingy diner as one would expect. The diner is flanked on all sides with windows that let sunlight shine through which adds to the cheery feeling that pervades the establishment. The staff always seems to meet new people and makes each diner feel comfortable and welcome. The diner is composed of two rail cars that meet on the ends forming an 'L' shape. A classic lunch counter and a row of booths are just past the entrance. The fixtures and lighting are reminiscent of the art deco theme so popular in the 1930's.
