It's amazing how easy it is to focus on what we don't have or what we would like to see come into the Grand Valley just as soon as we hear about a business closing their doors. But for a few minutes, let's reminisce about the Grand Junction restaurants that we wish would have never shut their doors and that we wish was still open today.

Unfortunately, I haven't lived here long enough to add anything to this list so I had to ask my coworkers (and trust their opinions) on what restaurants they wish would come back.

There was a recent article posted by MSN about Legendary Fast Food Brands We Wish We Could Have Back, but most of the restaurants mentioned I have never tried or heard of.

Here was the list of Grand Junction restaurants that my coworkers put together that they wish would come back.

  • Mr. Steak
  • The Royal Fork
  • Garfield's Restaurant and Pub
  • Long John Silvers
  • Prime Cut
  • Furrs Cafeteria
  • Western Sizzlin
  • Talley's Bar-Bq and Biscuit
  • Lois' Place
  • The Far East
  • Snuffy's
  • The Oasis
  • Johnny Carino's
  • Hooters
  • Blackjack Pizza

Okay, looking at this long list probably made another restaurant pop into your head that you wish was still open but has closed their doors for good. So, if you could pick one restaurant from back in the day that you truly miss and wish was still open in Grand Junction today which one would you choose?
