This building had a seated Pioneer statue on the roof until 2004 when it was destroyed by a hurricane. The statue came from the Wagon-Ho located next door which had closed.

Chuck Wagon
Wheat Ridge, CO


This Chuck Wagon was built in 1961 to resemble a Conestoga Wagon. It has housed numerous businesses over the years including The Grill Next Door, O'Brien's Wings & Things, and Silver's Burgers-N-Wings. The building housed Big Mama's Burritos in 2012. By 2019, it was housing El Jefe. [map]

Taco Loco Wagon
Dallas, TX


The Taco Loco Wagon was supposedly built around 1945-1955. I believe it was originally part of the "Chuc Wagun" chain (see links at the bottom of this page). The building's size and design are also so similar to the Chuck Wagon in Denver described above that they were probably related.

This location was previously known as the Taco Wagon and the Fajitas Wagon. In 2011, the building was undergoing renovation. It reopened later that year. A canopy was added which bisects the building beneath the covered wagon top feature. The place looked closed by 2016 and was still vacant in 2018. For more, see this website. [map]

Chuckwagon Cafe & Bar
Granby, CO
The Chuckwagon Cafe & Bar was known as Arnold's Chuckwagon in the 1950s. The sign on the roof and the covered wagon entrance were there then. Before that, the restaurant was known as the Chuck Wagon Inn with a simple "Cafe" sign on the roof. The building was the same then. [map]
