Classic Grapevine restaurant Willhoite’s is pitching in to provide meals to seniors throughout the North Texas community.

The restaurant temporarily shuttered its doors March 18, but workers have been busy making lunches Monday through Friday for Metroport Meals on Wheels.

Willhoite's prepares about 25 lunches per day for the nonprofit organization, according to a restaurant news release.

“We are very proud of our longstanding partnership with Metroport Meals on Wheels, but we are not the hero in this story,” Willhoite’s co-owner Eric Parker said in the news release. “Instead, we salute the volunteers who show up in our kitchen five days a week. Now, more than ever, we are grateful for their community service and unwavering willingness to help others.”

The restaurant originally opened in Grapevine in 1981. It is housed in what used to serve as a department store on Grapevine’s Main Street.


The restaurant's menu includes fried chicken, burgers, meatloaf, lasagna and more.
