I had to think awhile before I wrote this review. It was the second bad meal I had that day and I really try not to be so negative. The restaurant business is hard; very, very hard, but this place was in my top five of worst places I've ever eaten. First off it was dinner time and the place... More

We had been going to Wagon Wheel Restauarant for many years and enjoyed the character of the unique décor and the quality of the homemade food. We had heard it had been sold and taken back by the original family so we wanted to go back. Sad to say, they have lost the character, good food and service they once... More

Our french fries were over-cooked and the meat in our sandwiches was dry like it had been leftover or left out in the air. The only good part was our sodas were refilled promptly. Won't eat there again.

Once again it becoming one of my favorite breakfast restaurant ... the service was quick, attentive and the food was good. This was my third visit since the old owners came back and at each visit I was happy to see the more patrons are starting to come back.

We are so disappointed they have changed a great family atmosphere into a bar and grill, we don't need any more bar and grills in our neighborhood and so close to PLU.

This restaurant is one i will never visit again. Our food was laden with grease and was off on the taste. My children got sick after eating there. The only good part of the whole visit was the chili. The mashed potatoes that came with my wife's meal were served cold. The mixed veggies were bland and near flavorless. The... More

The restaurant is located across the street from the Farelli's Center in the PLU area. It is right off of 512, so it is a great place to stop for a meal or refreshments after work, as well as a great place to study and to unwind after classes. It has a comfortable atmosphere with great service, great prices, and... More
