UPTOWN welcomes the Boxcar Grill

Another winning biz moves to UPTOWN

This place just moved from Freighthouse Square to 6th Ave & Orchard.  It's the space where the Happy Dragon was.

has anyone ever dined at the Boxcar Grill?

Did it ever actually open at Freighthouse Square? It was "under construction" and "opening soon" for something like eight months- I eventually got tired of checking...

In the old Crescent Moon location at the west end of Freighthouse? I believe it did open. Never tried it though because I heard it was "meh". Might give it a shot sometime but don't find myself at 6th & Orchard for much except Tacoma Boy's. Thanks for the post though @cissero!

I miss Happy Dragon when it was at 6th n Alder.

I can't believe the Happy Dragon can go out of business while the gigantic Chinese joint further down 6th stays open.

Worse than meh. Only place I know could serve burnt and frozen hashbrowns.

Boxcar Grill ... home of the potatosicle
It's probably too edgy

Boxcar was one of the worst meals I've ever had. I would never go back there and I surely wont go back now that they are taking the place of my all time favorite chinese food spot (that was better at 6th & alder)
