Unless I am completely misremembering, there was a Pizza Hut with a liquor license in New Brunswick circa 1989

Perhaps, I’m going back to late 70’s early 80’s with my memory. I was barely a teenager but being asked to take the trip with my older cousins was a badge of honor!

Kind of a recent loss but I would kill to get back unlimited salad bar and thick as you like steak.

Yup what a loss to the area! (Bread bar!?!?? What???)
There was an uproar on these boards between several of us and the next ownership. (whom shall remain nameless)

From the Grunnings on the Hill, looking out over the NY skyline! I’d always get the $5 Sundae for just $1.00, served in a beer mug.

BTW–I was just in South Orange Village last week, visiting family. I was SO distressed to see that they had torn down the Grunnings building, with it’s iconic windows. It’s final iteration was a great Italian restaurant that lived up to the quality standards that made Grunnings so great.
