The “Good Old Days” #1LinerWeds

Linda Hill brings us One-Liner Wednesday. Now a word from Bonanza Restaurants. Get a 1/2-pound T-bone steak with baked potato and Texas toast for $2.79, limited time only!

Dan Blocker, who playerd Hoss Cartwright on the long-running series Bonanza, started Bonanza Restaurants. Betcha didn’t know that!

  1. Ally Bean sent me over to check out your blog and I was happy to be reminded of the old steak place. Those were the days!


    1. Well, thanks to Ally Bean and to you for visiting! Those were the days: a T-bone steak, baked potato and unlimited salad bar for $2.79? Even then, that was a good deal…


  2. I remember going to Bonanza cousin to the Sizzler. And if we were really splurging we’d go to the Black Angus Steak House where we had to split baked potatoes to help keep the bill reasonable. lol


    1. The last time I was at a Ponderosa (which bought all the Bonanza franchises) was in Puerto Rico twenty years ago. They all (ponderosa, Bonanza, and Sizzler) ued to be all over the country, now you can hardly find them…

        1. Kind of a shame, too. The market needed places like that. Of course there are any number of casual dining places around, but not in that price range. The times change and we must change with them…

  3. I would never order from through the internet. I call and order which means I am very archaic:)) I had no idea that Dan Blocker started the restaurants. I wonder if his family are still receiving benefits from it.


  4. I’m over from Ally’s. I didn’t know that but am not sure I would trust a T-bone steak for that price! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  5. I’ve never come across a restaurant website like that in the UK – most of the menus are open. Then again, there are lots of areas in the UK that don’t support deliveries so it would be pointless and they’d possibly lose visitor custom.


        1. There are a dozen different ways to spell Holton, and people will try all of them before getting it right. I can stand there and spell it “H-O-L-T-O-N,” and people will write “Holten,” “Halton,” “Holt,” etc…
