Willhoite's is one of the most unique restaurants in Texas, but it is also one of the oldest and most historical buildings in Grapevine! Built in 1914, the building first served as a dry goods store and was used for a time as a theater. In 1919, it was transformed into the first automotive garage in Grapevine.
Our Texas-sized buffet, delightful sandwiches and scrumptious appetizers are available now at Willhoite's instead of gasoline, oil and auto service, but the proud tradition of THE BEST is still the underlying priority of Willhoite's.
