I saw this post about all kinds of dead restaurant chains and it got me thinking.

I remember going to a Ponderosa near Taylor's Falls when I was a kid. And I definitely remember Bonanza -- and of course, that's still part of St. Cloud. Sambo's was the old McMillian's which is now PepperJax. And it seems to me there was a Steak and Ale in St. Cloud, wasn't there?

These are some more of the restaurants that are now gone.
