Wagon Wheel, “Home of the Club House,” is a Winnipeg institution famous for its four-inch-thick sandwich made with in-house roasted turkey. Regulars pay their respects to a diner that barely changed since opening in the 1950s, and place their final orders before one of the city’s last bastions against the homogeneity of fast-food franchises is torn down—ironically, to make way for a parking lot.
