Let’s Do Lunch: WHEEL Restaurant – Tamaqua

Grilled Cheese Restaurant Opens Second Location

WHEEL Restaurant has expanded beyond their flagship location in Pottsville and opened a second restaurant on East Broad Street in Tamaqua.

This gourmet grilled cheese restaurant opened on July 12 and has already melted people’s hearts. Just like at the Pottsville restaurant, customers get to choose their own combo of bread, cheese, meats, sauces and other creative toppings. The endless options prove that grilled cheese isn’t just for kids anymore.

We went the classic route with American cheese and bacon on fresh-baked Italian bread, plus a side of mac and cheese (because really, there’s no such thing as too much cheese). Then we loaded up on the fresh summer veggies with provolone, roasted red peppers and baby bella mushrooms with a side of grilled zucchini. And we couldn’t resist the crabby cheese fries, a customer favorite featuring hand-cut fries covered with homemade cheese sauce, Old Bay and lump crab meat.

WHEEL Restaurant currently offers takeout, outdoor seating and limited indoor seating. They are BYOB until they can open their bar. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for operating hours and announcements for their grand opening ceremony.

Now that restaurants are back open, we have a lot of lunch dates to make up. In this series, we’re visiting cafés, sandwich shops and more across NEPA and giving you an inside look at what they have to offer. Take your lunch break with us and show your support for our local restaurants.
