About to meet a friend from Nashville who was visiting her parents in Warsaw, I quickly looked up a place that we could meet half way. Noticing Le Roy was about the same distance for both of us, I researched restaurants online and came upon D & R Depot. Quickly reading that D & R was an old train depot turned restaurant, it intrigued me. We met for dinner and I was very pleased with my choice.
D & R Depot used to be the local train depot placing Le Roy on the map – before Jell-O of course! (Side note: Le Roy is the birthplace of Jello-O complete with a Jell-O museum now.) The depot resides right next to the train tracks and as you walk inside, they have pictures and memorabilia from long ago. They decorated the place as to keep that era alive; even the music is old fashioned. I also heard that if a train goes by while you’re there, you will get a free token for dessert! Sadly, we weren’t able to see that happen.
The food was great, just like the reviews said. The price was a little high for the amount of food you got, but the quality makes up for it. This restaurant has a menu specifically for vegans, vegetarians, and those that are gluten free. This was a match made in heaven for my paleo self – they even had saltless salt! No matter what your diet may be, their menu is very accommodating and they also provide substitution ideas such as pot pie with no breading.
As we slowly left the depot, we signed the map in the entranceway to show where we were visiting from – my friend is currently the only one signed from Nashville!
