A custom-cooked steak on an Amtrak train seemed too good to be true, but it wasn't.Graham Rapier / Business Insider

Surf and turf was far from what I expected to eat on my first cross-country Amtrak trip.

I had previously reported on a massive backlash to some dining-car changes on shorter routes, where custom-cooked food is going by the wayside, but the promise of gourmet eats on a moving train in the middle of North Dakota seemed far-fetched to say the least.

Determined to figure out for myself what was behind the hype, I set off on Amtrak's Empire Builder in Chicago last week. Over three days — and five meals — we crossed through wide expanses of the American heartland, through towns large and small, and past beautiful snow-capped peaks.

To be sure, the food on this part of my journey was a stark difference from my introduction to dining on rails. On the first half of the trek from coast to coast, I tried Amtrak's new contemporary meal service, which has rolled out on some routes east of the Mississippi River.

I recently set off on a four-day journey from coast to coast via Amtrak.  The food, for the most part, was way better than I had ever expected.  I stepped off the train a few pounds heavier — and much happier — than I thought possible.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
