Bill's Chicken and Steak House set to close after 49 years
Bill’s Chicken and Steak House, a landmark Vancouver restaurant, has been sold and its longtime family owners expect April 12 to be the venue’s last day of business. The 49-year-old restaurant was sold by brother-and-sister proprietors Jane Wiger, 69, and Alan Teel, 66. Their parents, Bill and Rosemary Teel, opened the family steak house in 1965 at 2200 St. John’s Blvd. The building and its additional parking lot sold for $475,000 to Ailian Ma, who reportedly plans to remodel the 7,700-square-foot venue and reopen it as a Chinese restaurant.
