After more than 30 years of business, Little Red Wagon Hamburgers closed Jan. 12. The restaurant served breakfast, lunch and dinner in Round Rock, offering chicken-fried steak, tacos, hamburgers and enchiladas.

Little Red Wagon Hamburgers, originally Little Red Barn Hamburgers, was founded by Dan Balderas, or “Tio Dan.” Following Balderas’ death in 2017, his family owned and operated the restaurant at 1207 E. Palm Valley Blvd., Round Rock. A sign posted on the restaurant's front door said the family is selling the property to honor Balderas' "last wish as stated in his will."


The Balderas family also owns and operates Tio Dan's Cafe, which remains open at 105 E. Old Settlers Blvd., Ste. 101, Round Rock.
