The menu includes spaghetti (what else?) with a variety of sauces, dishes with penne, fettucine, lasagna, chicken or veal parmigiana, chicken and NY steak. All entrees come with soup or salad, sourdough bread, spumoni and tea/coffee. There are several appetizers such as bruschetta, spinach artichoke dip and popcorn shrimp.
Portions are average but you can "factory size" any spaghetti entree for $1.99. For the health conscious, whole-wheat spaghetti can be substituted.
It's a fun place for kids and very popular judging by the wait times between 45 minutes and 2 hours. When we were finally seated, our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. We had dined there 30 years ago and found the Factory to be as good in its food and service.

The service is what you might expect in a place like this - impersonal and sort of rude and slow with a fake efficiency and friendliness (i.e. "Hi, my name is Jim and I will be your server tonight!"). A lot of birthday cakes and happy birthday songs sung by the staff. The spumoni ice cream is not bad.
The decor is interesting; you can eat in a street car replica or next to a carousel.
It gets busy on some early evenings so you sign up and wait for your table to be called out. (Just stand up if no one else does, they do not do too well writing down anything else but Jim or Joe Smith.)

Although I wouldn't classify this a 'fast food', the bread arrives promptly and the youngsters can start to chow down on it right away. There is a children's menu that is really reasonable. If the kids are really young, 2-4 years, you can ask for an extra plate and your entre will be plenty big enought to share with a child. Give the kid your included ice cream desert and you can order one off the menu, if you have room...
