Long time business partners and restaurateurs Dale Eisenberg and Mike Ventre were fed up with today’s over abundance of technology geared at kids and decided to create a fun train-focused place where a new generation could connect with that heritage and develop treasured memories of their own. After years of success owning and operating The Original Pancake House franchises in Illinois and Ohio, Eisenberg reopened a nostalgic train restaurant built in 1950 (located in Chicago’s northern suburbs) that had been shuttered. After getting that restaurant back “on track,” Eisenberg and Ventre decided to create their own special place for families to enjoy a tasty meal delivered on toy trains

In 1968 Danny and Sandy Dalton decided to live their dream, and opened their first pizza restaurant, and they have been in the pizza business ever since. The first “Danny’s Pizza” was opened on the North side of Chicago. At that time we began the family tradition of serving a delicious pizza made using special ingredients and from our own family recipes.
In Danny’s words “Good food is good business”. With the success of that first restaurant in Chicago, Danny knew he had a winner, and opened several locations throughout the Northwest suburbs over the years. When Danny passed away in 1999, his wife Sandy, their children and grandchildren were all involved in working the restaurant and continue the family traditions to this day. We now have four generations that are part of the daily operations at Danny’s.
