“2Toots Train Whistle Grill is proud to be veteran-owned and operated.
Our Glen Ellyn store is owned by US Army veteran Shaun Garry and his wife Stacy. Shaun received a Purple Heart Medal for wounds received in Iraq. He is also an alumni of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Our Bartlett store is co-owned by US Marine Corps veteran Lynn Lowder who received the Silver Star, Bronze Star with combat “v” and Purple Heart medals while serving in Vietnam.
We are proud of our veterans and thankful for their service to our great nation.
The best way you can show your support of our veterans is to give them your business and get to know them. It’s simple to do…just visit their restaurants for some great tasting food and a little quality conversation. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to your next visit.”
2Toots Train Whistle Grill® is the ONLY train themed restaurant that has all of the seating on the tracks with your meals delivered by multiple “O” scale trains. That in itself would be a good enough reason to visit, but what brings us an even greater level of satisfaction, is that we’re proud to be doing all those things necessary to make 2Toots Train Whistle Grill® a leader in the organic, healthy and sustainable food movement. Our commitment to continually offer more healthy food choices for your family is constantly evolving and our goal is to be 100% effective in all areas. We currently are the ONLY Train Themed, Family Friendly, Fast Casual restaurant group which uses only 100% grass-fed, prairie raised, natural, Angus beef exclusively for our preservative free Hot Dogs, nationally famous Hamburgers and homemade Chili!
We source our 100% Grass Fed Beef from Bill Kurtis’ Tallgrass Beef Company. The Tallgrass Beef Company® was founded in 2005 by Bill Kurtis, who in addition to being a nationally recognized journalist, is a rancher, conservationist, highly respected businessman and a Chicago Channel 2 news anchor. Tallgrass Beef Company is an industry leader in the production of grass-fed, grass-finished beef in the United States. After purchasing his 10,000 acre ranch near the town of Sedan, Kansas, Kurtis was compelled to find a sustainable method of raising cattle that was not only good for the environment, but also the animals themselves and the American food consumer. This was the genesis of Tallgrass Beef Company.Today Tallgrass Beef Company is comprised of a network of family farmers and ranchers across the United States that produce grass-fed, grass-finished cattle according to a strict set of protocols. These stringent standards ensure that food consumers are buying the safest, healthiest, most nutritious beef possible. Tallgrass Beef is a favorite among consumers seeking a healthy, humane source of beef.
