    At the store looking at salsa. Thinking hey whatever happened to Chi Chi's! Oh boy we used to have some good times there. Yum Fried Ice cream. Sounds gross as an adult but as a kid it was:cloud9:
    So what restuarants do you miss or wonder whatever happened to them.

    and what about Ground Round! as a kid you paid what you weighed. Imagine doing that now!:rotfl2:

    when I was a kid, I loved going to Beefsteak Charlies. I loved the all you can eat shrimp on the salad bar!

    Sizzler! Used to order a steak, then fill up on the awesome salad bar while waiting and end up too full to eat the steak. Last time there was a Sizzler around here my 19 year old was a toddler.

    Farell's Ice Cream. Used to love going to those on vacation - the only time we would eat out.

    We have a Ground Round up here in Bangor! I know they still have a kids' special night, but not sure if it's "pay what you weigh" or "kids eat free." In college (in Ithaca, NY) we used to go to Ground Round for chicken wing night... I think it was 10 cents each- of $5 AYCE? Can't remember... age is a sad thing sometimes!

    I still miss Chi Chi's. :( My favorite meal there was Pollo Magnifico.

    I hate when restaurants that I love go out of business.

    Trader Vic's!

    I know they haven't completely gone out of business, but they're not in any of the cities I visit.

    Way back - when there was a Howard Johnson at every major exit off the interstate.

    Are Friendly's still around?

    Most of the Hardee's restaurants closed years ago, but there is one on the way to Madison. We always stop on our way there. Hardees used to be all over the place and they disappeared so fast!

    I would get a low-fat twist cone all the time. They don't even have those anymore. :(
