Watson’s will now serve brunch every Sunday

Brunch is a big deal in Champaign-Urbana, and everybody knows it. Over the course of this year, Watson’s Shack and Rail in Downtown Champaign has been pumping out an awesome monthly brunch, paired with bluegrass music to match. This has been so successful, that now, they’re going to expand into the weekly brunch game, offering their awesome fare every single Sunday, starting June 4th.

For more information on what you can expect every week, check out what Watson’s had to say below:


Starting Sunday, June 4th we will open our doors EVERY Sunday for brunch, dinner, & our exclusive patio parties. The official Sunday hours for the shack will be 10 AM – 9 PM with our kitchen operating from 10 AM – 2 PM and 4 PM – 9 PM.  The bar will remain open through both brunch & dinner service. 

The last Sunday of the month will be dedicated to Bluegrass & Burgers with a special, limited menu available in place of our regular brunch menu. Our friend Sam Payne will join us for a live performance either indoor or out on the patio (weather permitting) from 12 PM – 2 PM for these events.

Summer menus & our first brunch menu will be released via our website shortly! Thank you for your continued support through all of this. We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Shack this summer!

Friday: 11 AM – 2 AM

Saturday: 4 PM – 2 AM
