Bellville Ohio Buckeye Express Diner
If you're looking for the perfect house in a small town, you'll find it in Ohio among our Bellville homes for sale. As a local, you'll settle into a beautiful, affordable home in a quiet neighborhood. When you need fun and excitement, you can make an hour-long drive to Columbus, but you don't have to. Bellville residents enjoy art and culture venues, museums and wineries, and great places to shop, relax, and eat.

Our REALTORS® invite you to spend a weekend touring Bellville homes and getting to know our town. If you love trains, burgers or both, be sure to make a stop at the Buckeye Express Diner. It's an Ohio State Buckeye-themed restaurant serving homemade comfort food inside a pair of repurposed passenger train cars. 

Buckeye Express Diner

If you're traveling I-71 North, about an hour away from Columbus, you'll spot Buckeye Express Diner on a hill off to your right. The vintage steam locomotive and red passenger cars appear as though they took a wrong turn while leaving a movie set. It's more of a leap back in time to the days when Bellville was an Ohio train town. When you spot the trains, take the next exit. It will deliver you to State Route 97 and the Buckeye Express Diner.  

Buckeye? It's Not About the Trees

The buckeye is Ohio's state tree, but the diner's theme isn't about trees at all. The restaurant is an Ohio State Buckeyes fan spot. Considering the name, it's proximity to OSU, and the train's bright Buckeye red exterior color, visitors figure that out before they step in the door.

Inside, Ohio State Buckeye flags and pendants adorn the walls. The wall trim and napkin-holders are red too. In the gift shop, you'll see an Ohio State Buckeye clock, a Buckeye blanket, Buckeye plush dolls, and even a Buckeye gnome. It's not about the trees.

The Food

Buckeye Express serves their custom-made version of comfort food. The menu includes homemade soups and a selection of wraps, subs, sandwiches, and big delicious burgers, all served with hand-cut fries. All of their sandwiches come in generous portions, but at 10-pounds, the Buckeye Belly Buster is the biggest sandwich on the menu. It has eight pounds of beef, two pounds of toppings and their homemade WOODY sauce.

The diner recently began serving breakfast dishes, including specials such as their Mexican Breakfast Burrito, Crepes with sweet cream cheese and blueberries, and the "Chicken Mess" with scrambled eggs, hash browns, grilled chicken, and several other ingredients. The diner shares breakfast and other menu specials on the Buckeye Express Diner Facebook page.

Gift Shop & Kids Play Area

If you want a memento of your Buckeye Express outing, you can purchase candy and gift items in the gift shop.  

When the weather cooperates, your children will enjoy the Kids Play Area out back. There's a kid-size Buckeye Express train to keep the little ones busy and tables for parents to enjoy a meal outdoors.
