Visitor Tips and News About Covered Wagon Eatery
Recently, the Covered Wagon Eatery was bought by Geoff and Dana Diaz who now operate it as "Big" Mama's Burritos, home of the 1.5lb Burrito. They are getting great reviews and hopefully they will stay much longer than their predecessors.[Bob Pearce, 05/29/2009]
This little place is now called O'Brien's Wings-N-Things, and was originally opened as the Chuck Wagon in 1961. It is a drive-up eatery shaped like a covered wagon, painted in red and white. It is pretty much built to scale too; its tiny narrow kitchen opens out into the wagon's small double-windowed ordering place in front (not many conestoga wagons have windshields), where you can pull up and order on the west side.[Richard J.
