The Chuck Wagon restaurant was built in 1970 by Darrell Smith. It was one of several "Chuck Wagon” restaurants in the metro east area.
All of those eateries had the name Bert's Chuck Wagon. Even though Darrell offered the same menu as other "Chuck Wagon” restaurants, he chose not to put the name Bert's upon his establishment. Thus, it has always been The Chuck Wagon, which comes as a great surprise to most regular customers, for they know it as "Bert's”!
In 1975, Darrell sold the restaurant to Hector and Sandra Gonzales. For the next nine years, the Gonzales family of six worked long, hard hours to help ensure the success of the business. The Chuck Wagon became a popular destination on Thursday and Saturday nights when they added an All-You-Can-Eat dinner of Mexican food.
