A-Train Station, winner of the 2022 Nowie Award for best food truck, has opened its first brick and mortar location on Birmingham’s West End at 1515 Pearson Ave. S.W. 

“It’s been a long time coming,” Anthony Harris, co-owner of A-Train Station, told Bham Now. “We’re really excited. A lot of people have been coming in to let us know they have our back. It’s been a wonderful experience.”

Expanded Menus

Known for their mountainous loaded fries, Philly cheesesteaks and wings, A-Train is expanding its menu at the restaurant. 

“We have a few new items,” Harris said. “It’s gonna be a little bit different from the food truck. We’re gonna do catfish and we’ll have a shrimp basket.”

New Mural

Along with a new place to dine year round, A-Train Station has added a mural on the side of their building by one of Birmingham’s most popular muralists—Dewon Moton. The mural depicts a train coming down the tracks and one of West End’s most famous landmarks, Arlington House.
