See one of the last Bonanza Steakhouses demolished after standing for 45 years
Unfortunately no longer a potful of gold - Bonanza!
For 45 years, folks in Tupelo, Mississippi, lined up for the buffet at Bonanza Steakhouse, the chain whose name is taken from the hit TV Western. That particular buffet became a ghost town after the restaurant got bought by Dollar General and shuttered in August this year. Then Wednesday brought a day that stamped out the chain in Tupelo for good when that Bonanza Steakhouse was demolished. Steel your steak-loving heart and see the damage done in this video from WTVA below:
Did you ever eat at a Bonanza Steakhouse sometimes now called Ponderosa Steakhouse? With only eight locations left in the country, we're living in a new time that's a far cry from when the popularity of the chain reached its peak in 1989, when there were 600 steakhouses spread across the U.S. Is there still one in your area?
