Bert’s Chuckwagon


This was ostensibly a Mexican restaurant (I always got the chicken nuggets) from the past in my hometown. It’s gone now. Well it’s not gone, but the building is gone, that dope red A-frame with the mural of Jesus on the cross lecturing Mary Magdalene. It moved to a storefront downtown where it looks like everything else. And now it’s busier and cleaner, and it’s helping revitalize Main Street, but it’s not the same. It doesn’t feel like Bert’s. I think I understand a little bit now about why old people are so disagreeable. Their whole lives are filled with things that don’t feel right. 4.6/5
