Campus Chuck Wagon – All You Can Eat!

El Cajon Boulevard’s Campus Chuck Wagon Restaurant

The giant neon sign stood tall at 6205 El Cajon Boulevard all through the 60’s and 70’s feeding legions of San Diego State students, locals, and tourists alike. It boasted a half million customers a year pulling up a tray to the carving stations and food line.

The Food Line

“The policy of giving the people what they want in the way of price–service–and quality has made the CAMPUS CHUCK WAGON on of the outstanding eating attractions in the Far West.”
