It is the first day of Restaurant Week and coincidentally, Railman History Week, and to celebrate we are giving a glimpse into the history of our sandwich, the Railman, and its relationship with the rich history of Dayton!

The first chapter of “The Railman Throughout Dayton History” details the love of some of the most iconic names in Dayton history, the Wright Brothers, for the Railman. In this rarely seen photo, you can actually see a Railman with french fries sitting on the wing of the Wright Brothers’ plane next to Wilbur. Although this photo was taken in North Carolina shortly before a test flight, it goes to show that the Wright Brothers would accept no less than a Dayton classic as they were going into their big day.

In honor of the Railman’s impact on the Wright Brothers and the history of flight, we are serving a Railman with french fries and a fountain drink for $9.99 today!

Soups today will be Loaded Baked Potato, Garden Vegetable, and Cream of Mushroom along with Chili, Chicken Noodle, and Lobster Bisque.
