Bonanza Sirloin Pit – May 19, 1971 was the Grand Opening of the Bonanza Sirloin Pit at 1445 South Broadway … now the home of Sergio’s…. The Bonanza featured a “rugged western décor” with lots of parking available…. The Bonanza also had a no tipping policy. Customers placed their order and then could watch their steak being char-grilled to order on an open grill as they progressed down the cafeteria style food line… The #2 was my favorite – if was a ribeye dinner complete with drink for only $1.49… The top Hand T-bone was the most expensive item on the menu at $2.99…
