A Paso icon, Wilson’s Restaurant, is closing 

Get your final meal on Sunday

Wilsons-Rest 2The iconic Paso Robles diner, Wilson’s Restaurant, posted a notice on their door last week saying they are closing on the 24th of this month. It’s hard to imagine Paso without Wilson’s, a reader told the Daily News.

Since 1948 Wilson’s has been serving up classic diner fair for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They stopped serving dinner a few years ago. Their billboard on 24th has greeted thousand of visitors coming into town. “It’s one of the mainstays of Paso Robles,” KSBY reported. “Anyone who’s lived in the area for any amount of time has likely had breakfast there numerous times. But come this Sunday, Wilson’s will close.”

Walk in the place and you’ll likely be served by someone who’s worked there for decades, KSBY reports. Employees say the owners Harold and Gail Hansen are ready to retire. “Viewers we talked to sound like they’re losing an old friend in hearing about the closure of Wilsons.”

The property has been listed for sale for the last couple of years.
