GOODBYE & FAREWELL from the Wagon WheelIn an interview, Patty Gallegos' granddaughter also said, "My grandmother is almost 70. Over time it starts to wear you down because it’s stressful running a business and now she just wants to enjoy her life."
It has been a remarkable experience to “Grab the Wheel” since Restaurant Impossible featured us on their makeover show over a year ago. In that time there have been many ups and downs. Most likely, you had never heard of the Wagon Wheel Restaurant, or if you did, the reviews may have been unfavorable. We set out to change this trend. We tried everything from social media and printed flyers to standing by the highway with a sign. All had limited results. Out of necessity we reached out to local artists and something strange happened. People started to come. With a limited staff and budget we didn't have much to offer but a place to shine, and shine they did.
Over the past year of comedy shows, open mics, acoustic nights, and full band shows, there has been a resurgence of business and interest in the restaurant. We would like to thank all of the artists and patrons that have made this possible. Your support is amazing, which also makes it difficult to say goodbye. But due to the owner's health conditions, we will be closing on September 7.
Although this is the end of the road for the Wagon Wheel, Don't be sad! Let's make these last few weeks a time to remember!
You may remember this episode of Restaurant Impossible because they were known for serving muskrat. This will be the sixth restaurant from season six (2013) of Restaurant Impossible to close and the Restaurant Impossible Update page will be updated with this information once the restaurant closes.
