Didn't realize the flex dining menu was revised a little bit, as of July 1st. Btw I really do greatly appreciate your reviews, on the flex dining food items you've tried. Since it gives me an idea of what to expect for food, if I were to pull the trigger and do an Amtrak sleeper trip to somewhere between now and October 1st. Sadly with the quality of flex menu food being worser vs. the old dining car menu, it makes me more likely I'd brave coach for trips that aren't too far away. Which in my case, would be trips under 24 hours away. And that in the past, it'd be a slam dunk to upgrade to a sleeper, for those past decent dining car meals. I wish that'd come back. And while I cross my fingers it(old dining car menu, till early 2020) eventually comes back, I worry it won't.According to the staff, the full eight item menu is on all western trains as of July 1.
