The Wunsche Bro’s, Charlie & Dell Wunsche, built it as a saloon for the railroad workers from lumber milled from their family’s mill. It remained a saloon & hotel until it was sold to Viola Burke and turned into the famous Spring Café. Through the years, numerous ghost sightings have occurred, usually in Charlie Wunsche’ s upstairs bedroom.
A terrible fire broke out in 2015 which destroyed a section which had been added on in the 80’s. Thankfully, the original historic 1902 Saloon building was left intact and only received smoke damage.
We purchased it and decided to restore it back to its glory days. We are so proud to be able to bring back such a local treasure. 30 years ago we opened our first little Italian Restaurant, Amerigo’s Seafood & Pasta in Spring, Texas, in 1989. In 1994 we decided to open a second location in The Woodlands and named it Amerigo’s Grille. We plan to use many of the original Wunsche menu items (such as the beer bread) and the original Saloon will be just like it was in the 1900’s.
We are restoring it back in honor of its heritage. We are excited about bringing lots of fun, music, and wonderful Texas food back to Old Town Spring. Everyone is buzzing about the re-opening of Wunsche Bro’s. And I will tell you a little secret….there will be a bar on the roof! I think that would make the Wunsche Brothers happyAbout Us
