The Dining Car is a mobile food truck and catering company – a kitchen on wheels, serving freshly prepared meals on the streets of Boston. Our sandwiches are made on great breads, and our focaccia is baked right on the truck. Our ever-changing menu features meats and seasonal produce that represent our local agricultural community, with selections inspired by cuisines from all over the world.

Prepared Meals by

The Dining Car

For nine years, we have specialized in delighting large gatherings of happy people at weddings, bar mitzvahs, corporate events, The Greenway at lunchtime, and the SoWa Open Market on summer Sundays.

In these weeks as we’ve held our families and friends close (but not too close!) we looked for new ways to do what we do best. We’re still booking special events – smaller, more intimate ones, for now. And we are back on the road, heading to a neighborhood near you with some of your favorite Dining Car menu items, available with contactless payment.  We also have a growing selection of delicious meals, ready to heat and enjoy in the comfort of your home or office.

Stay tuned for our schedule and online ordering platform. As life returns to The Greenway and the financial district, we’ll be there.  If you’d like us to come to your neighborhood, please email us at info@diningcar.net  Also, our meals are available for delivery through the extraordinary Sharon and Canton Food Shares run by our friend, Avi Shemtov, of Simcha and The Chubby Chickpea.

We're hiring!
