The Red Wagon is what small town diners use to be, a laid back friendly place to have a good breakfast or lunch, good food for fair prices, just wish they were open for dinner!

It is a step back in time, to an era when smoking was permitted everywhere and diners like the Red Wagon dominated the restaurant selection of small town Texas. Offering low cost breakfast specials to accompany chicken fried steak, gravy, biscuits and mashed potatoes. The clientele, surprisingly, span the entire field... More

This is a wonderful place to get home cooked food!! Very good prices and plenty to eat! The only draw back is the place is smoking with a Very small no smoking section but it is with closed doors so You can't really tell they are smoking in the main cafe!!

Same as headline. Contrary to comments they have a closed no smoking room. Great prices esp. breakfast. Plenty of food for the money.
