The pizza was also so good, as were the calzones.

Anyone remember Conan's pizza here in SA in the 80's they had a location in I think the spot that Colonna's took over in the 90's. I thought they had some great deep dish pizza.
I remember Conan's and the great artwork. I think they predated Godfather's Pizza. Both had great deep dish pizza.

Anybody remember UR Cook's in the same Loehman's Village shopping center? I remember going there when the first opened and thinking it was the best piece of Steak you could eat. I Don't know if I was just young and stupid and didn't know better, but I went there with a friend shortly before they closed down and felt the quality of the meat wasn't much better than Golden Corral.

Looks like Reggiano's, Silo, and Kirby's Steakhouse are all now gone but not forgotten on 1604. And my old hangout of course, Tom's Ribs.

I really liked Kirby's. I wonder how many other restaurants will fail before the economy picks up.

Anyone remember when the country club closed?

I know Reggiano's closed but I think Kirby's and Silo are still open. Kirby's opens normally about 5 not sure what time Silo opens.

Yes I think they have 3 locations, I will have to make a trip up there. It would be worth the drive.

I used to eat at UR Cooks all the time. You could Grill your steak and sip on a lone star at the same time. Also Toasting and snacking on on Texas toast as your steak was cooking. Very good steak and you didn't have to clean up your mess. Sipping on a Lone Star(imported from SA at Christmas) and getting ready to Grill some steaks right now. Come on over. HHW
