If you find yourself in Wheeling, make sure you check out the Vagabond Kitchen.

It’s easy to see why the staff takes pride in every dish that comes out of the kitchen.  The brunch menu? Delicious. The Vagabound duck burger (topped with spinach, apples, and a red onion marmalade)? Put a fork in me. I’m done.

But don’t take my word for it, swing by and try it for yourself.
