Amtrak 1980 Lunch Menu

Like the 1979 lunch menu shown a few days ago, this one is protected in plastic lamination. The only crass advertising is a two-paragraph blurb on the back cover, which also lists wine and beverages.

The menu itself is even more limited than in 1979. What passes for the full-meal side offers soup and sandwich, a cold plate, and a hot turkey sandwich. The “lighter-fare” side has a steak sandwich, hamburger and cheeseburger, a vegetable plate, and a BLT, as well as a couple of salads. Meals similar to the 1979 offerings of spaghetti and meat sauce, chicken stew, or filet of perch are completely absent from this menu.
