“Very Sad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

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 had and it appears they have lost their clientele too. Being one of a few tables in the restaurant, our food was cold and service was slow. Sad to say a longstanding icon of Parkland is gone.

“Food was not up to par.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

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.

“Very happy the former owners are back ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

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.

“Not a good change”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

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.
