Bob and Wandas Wagon Wheel Restaurant

A Bit of History

Hi.  My name is Darrell Vowell and I am the owner of Bob & Wanda's Wagon Wheel Restaurant.

My parents, Bob & Wanda started this restaurant over 25 years ago.

Bob was well known for doing fish fries over the years for many businesses, like car dealerships, churches, lodges, family reunions and so on. Just over twenty five years ago, Dad parlayed his reputation and Bob & Wanda bought the current property and opened, Bob & Wanda’s Catfish.

After many years of serving his customers Catfish, Chicken, and Shrimp they retired and my sister, Karen Vowell took over the reins of the Bob & Wanda’s legacy. Karen, with a keen understanding of her customers, expanded the menu by adding things that we grew up eating and were our family favorites.

As the business grew Karen opened another location in Van Buren AR. A year later, Karen and myself found ourselves running in circles between the two locations. In an effort to streamline operations and become more effective we split duties between both locations.

June 1st of 2018 she transitioned to the Van Buren location giving it her full attention. My wife, Chandra Vowell and I, Darrell Vowell are running the Barling location. To make the distinction from the Van Buren location we are known as Bob & Wanda’s Wagon Wheel Restaurant in Barling Ar.

While our menus remain simila,r with our well know family favorites, we will have different specials running each week. We have Fat’s Marley and his acoustic show live on Saturday nights.

Come join us for great food and fun in a southern down home family atmosphere.
