BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Bismarck restaurant serving fresh burgers for nearly 50 years won’t change despite new ownership.

Bill Wood sold The Woodhouse this month to a former employee, The Bismarck Tribune reported. The 87-year-old has owned the restaurant since 1969.

Williston attorney and new Woodhouse owner Dan Vondrachek II said “things will stay the same.” He worked at the restaurant in the 1990s while a student.

“I suggested to him that we don’t change anything because if you’ve got something going, why mess with it?” Wood said.

Wood said customers frequent the restaurant because it serves fresh meat cut and ground daily. The Woodhouse is also known for its cheese frenchees, ice cream malts and homemade pie.



Vondrachek said the restaurant stays simple with quality ingredients and good recipes.

The restaurant also features booth phones for customers to place their orders.

“It’s kind of unique and it gets the customer the food a little faster,” Wood said.

Wood said he plans to assist with the transition.

“I am very proud of the tradition we’ve had here at The Woodhouse. Our reputation is known all over the state,” Wood said.

Vondrachek is wrapping up his law practice and moving his family to Bismarck.

“I definitely hope for as long and successful a run as he had,” Vondrachek said.
