Default T-Bones

It was a Bonanza Steak House (buffet) upstairs, and Jeremiah's (a bar) downstairs, at least back in the '80's / '90's. I'm not sure if it was something else before that, or prior to becoming T-Bones and Cactus Jack's.

Jeremiah's often had live entertainment, and drew a slightly older crowd.

Friendly's was next to it.

I do miss Bonanza. Found one in Carlisle PA when I was down for a car show a few years ago before Covid, about a month after I was there, it burned down. But I was glad I got one more Bonanza burger. They weren't all that great, but more childhood memories going there and loading up on the "food bar" before the burger came out.

You might be thinking of what is now Lakes Region Veterinary Hospital. Which was a Wendy's. Which was the Ancient Mariner. Which was The Captain's Table.
Maybe. The 1900's are a blur.

I think nature gave humans the ability to recall where they have found food.

This is a survival tool.

Rather than remembering where we found game we now use this skill to reminisce about the restaurants that have come and gone.

I miss Bonanza, Mr Steak, Ponderosa and their like.

They were a rare luxury for young wifey and me as we scraped our way forward.
