It's fun to visit a restaurant. Over the years, restaurants have come and restaurants have gone. Some stay in business for years and years, others only for a little while. How many former Quincy restaurants can you remember? 

Here is a quick list we started. We asked the rest of the staff, we looked in old phone books, and we just did some old fashioned brainstorming to come up with as many as we could. How many of these establishments do you remember? What other restaurants should be added to the list?

  • Baron's
  • Boag's
  • Burger Chef
  • Delmonico's
  • Diamond Dave's
  • Godfather's Pizza
  • Golden Corral
  • Firehouse Pizza
  • Krieger's
  • Kutter's
  • Long John Silver's
  • Minn's Tea Room
  • Pizzan's Pizza
  • Stipps
  • Taste of Tai
  • TGI Friday's
  • The Pink Flamingo
  • The Plaza
  • York Steak House

We recently posted a similar story about Hannibal restaurants. You know what would be incredible, if anyone could figure out a way to pull it off? It would be really neat if someone could publish a cookbook featuring signature recipes from some of these places. Obviously the chain restaurants would never share that information, but I wonder if it would be possible to track down recipes from the local businesses that have been closed for years? I would buy a book like that.
