Bernie's Dining Depot, Chicopee MA

Bernie's Dining Depot, on James Street in Chicopee MA, is one of the best places in the Connecticut River Valley to go for a prime rib dinner. Their standard cut (shown above with a quarter on the plate to give you an idea of the size) is a carnivore's delight - I'm pretty sure it weighs in at about two pounds - and they have an even larger portion for huge appetites, called the "Conductor's Cut."

Huge portions and reasonable prices aside, one of the best reasons to eat at Bernie's is their main dining room. It is actually a genuine Pullman railroad dining car, meticulously restored. Most of the tables in the car and in the attached original diner building only seat 4 or, at most, 6 people, so keep that in mind if you plan to go out with a bunch of friends.

Call for reservations, especially if you plan to go on a Friday or Saturday night. It's a popular place.

Have eaten there 3 times in the past 3 years and still can't believe the quality, value and service.
