The Wagon Trail Restaurant opened June 2012 after Nathan lost his job. “We were looking for something we could do as a family.” The Sizemores have eight children from 3 to 20 years old. Some of the children help out with the restaurant. “Rebecca is our main baker; she loves it and she’s excellent."
The name The Wagon Trail came about for a number of reasons. “We live in the Mennonite area and all the wagons go right down here, so it’s kind of the wagon trail. A lot of people eat here because they want to sit and watch the horse and buggies go by.” Secondly, Amy, born in Danville, and Nathan, born in Oregon, moved out here from the northwest state in 2005. They hit the wagon trail, so to speak.
Top sellers are the 1/2 lb. burgers and gourmet sandwiches made on homemade buns which are baked fresh daily. Soups, chili, and other homemade concoctions top the list, as well as pizza, hot dogs, salads and desserts. Sides include made-to-order coleslaw, potato wedges, chips, and a few more seasonal veggies and fruit. The restaurant features various desserts such as four-berry sundaes, brownies and a variety of homemade pies offered daily as specials. Fruit shakes are available in season. Almost everything is made from scratch. We also have gluten-free wraps and can help you make heart healthy and diabetic friendly choices.
Fridays are fish days! We've got the best tasting catfish dinner at the most reasonable price for counties around.
With an abundance of produce grown nearby, it is purchased as close to the farm as it gets from Lavern's Country Market. And the wheat bread is made with fresh ground wheat grown organically by a neighbor Mennonite farmer.
The western-theme building has covered picnic tables in front. A corn hole game and a couple sets of real horseshoes are set up to play. When the weather gets a bit chilly or breezy, come into the covered porch area and enjoy a relaxed meal with friends or new acquaintances.
We are wheelchair accessible. If you have any special requests please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
