[Gill, MA] Wagon Wheel Restaurant
On our way to skiing Bromley this past Friday, my friend and I stopped in for a quick breakfast to go. We were surprised at this great menu options. For the sake of time constraints while I'm at work, I'll copy a portion of a description from another web site:
"...Serving salads, grilled burgers, hot dogs, fresh fish, homemade soups and chili. Also, falafal, gyro, Snows Ice Cream, soft serve, Deans Beans Coffee and baked goods."

My raspberry muffin was great. Big and hearty.
Right near Barton's Cove...
I first happened upon this restaurant while on a through paddle of the CT river. It was so awesome that I now drive more than an hour out of my way to get there every time I go up north, or come home from going up north. Their burgers are fantastic, but its the milkshakes that keep me coming back. My newest discovery, and official favorite is the coffee shake. It is out of this world, and unlike any other coffee shake I've ever had, I could suggest it without hesitation to anyone.
The Wagon Wheel is great - the people are really nice and they go out of their way to serve what's wholsome and local. Food is good, nothing amazing in an of itself but for a place in Gill this is a great breakfast spot and a fine place to stop in for a Wheel View Farm burger or a Gyros plate.
I *finally* got to the Wagon Wheel last week. Had an excellent gyro platter -- beyond the nicely seasoned, tender meat there were fresh greens with a nicely balanced dressing, and a tasty pita. I think the fries were fresh-cut, both they and the onion rings had a nice fry going on, not too greasy, just greasy enough. :) They also offer a "wagon wheel" burger that's grass-fed beef for (I think) $1.50 more. Too full for ice cream.
Snack food/fast food/local at its best, with a quirky year-round dining room. We will most definitely be back.
Agreed, have stopped here several times when on the road between Greenfield and Leominster and they do have great salads and other daily lunch specials. Also, chocolate dipped frozen bananas.
I didn't realize it was open in the winter though, I thought it was a seasonal place, so that's good to know.
While skiing Berkshire East's last operating day of the 2007/2008 season, I had the opportunity to stop at the Wagon Wheel before and after. Such a cool place. In the morning I picked up a plain bagel with butter, but on the way home I took away out a Turkey panini sandwich with avocado, goat's cheese, and spinach, plus a great big soft and chewy raisin cookie. Spring hours are now in effect. Nice friendly service.
