 our history

Our restaurant has been in the heart of the Frankfort community for over 16 years. Originally opened as Choo Choo Johnny's, the train themed family diner has been the best restaurant for family fun in the South Chicagoland area. If you were a kid growing up in Frankfort, Mokena, Orland, or Tinley Park, chances are you loved Choo Choo Johnny's.

In April 2014, Tony and Teffini Chiuso took over ownership and renamed Choo Choo Johnny's.  The restaurant's new name is All Aboard! Family Dining & Amusement. We sport a fresh menu with homemade favorites, a vibrant new look in the dining room, complete with a handpainted train mural, and a playroom filled with train toys. 

In the press

We are very excited to share a great article published by Chicago Parent blogger, Erin Skibinski. 

​"A dining experience to save your dinner slump"

We were also featured in the Daily Southtown by writer Jessi Virtusio. The article, "Ice sculptures to take shape at train-themed restaurants" highlights a family fun event to honor our first year in business.
