That's where the circus family eats daily when they're on the road.

This morning, Alabama's 13 got the chance to check out Chef Matt Loory, an Atlanta native, serve up tasty dishes for the crew.

Loory cooks more than"five hundred pounds of food in one day for performers from more than 30 countries," according to a news release.

The train is parked at train yard near downtown.
