THE RED BOX CAR started out as a real Box Car traveling from Laurel to Red Lodge in the early 1900's.

After the spur was shut down many of these Box Cars were sold or given away to local farmers or towns people.  You can still see a box car or two dotting the countyside.  This one was sitting in Roberts, MT when June & Ed Alquist with the help of Ron & Shirley Kotar decided to move it up to Red Lodge where it sits now to start the Red Box Car in 1972.


The menu has gotten more diverse since the 70's but The Red Box Car still remains the same.  You can dine outside next to Rock Creek and hear the sounds of the creek as you relax.  Now, you can also eat inside in our recreated Dining Car if the weather turns bad.


Lori & Jim Davis bought the Box Car in 1999 and have continued on with the tradion of great food at a good price.  Now Lori and her sons, Tyler & Jacob, run the Box Car with the help of our awesome staff.
