    Hickory Park on Duff used to be a Bonanza. Try wrapping your brain around that one.

    The Ponderosa Steakhouse was on Lincoln Way back when the Bonanza was in the Hickory Park location.

    I seem to recall the Virginia / Smokey Mts to be quite different scenery from the Tahoe piney forests, but Hollywood has to work with what they got..........

    I don't remember that, but I remember them located on the corner of Duff and 16th.

    The steak buffetts are not doing well. The Chinese buffetts are surviving. Is that a trend?

    That was something like the old "Tony's Little Italy" or something. They moved there from the block building and before the old Bonanza. At least I am pretty sure it was Hickory Park in the old block building back in the middle 70's.

    Are you thinking Virginia because of Virginia City? I was confused about that as a kid too. But learned later that Virginia City is in Montana.
