Larry's Palm Cafe
Erna’s Restaurant – This was a very popular restaurant in the 50’s and 60’s. Erna’s was located at the intersection of South Broadway and 16th Avenue. Reportedly Erna’s had the best chicken fried steak around, at the time. Located right next to the restaurant was a bar, the 83 Club.
Larry’s Palm Café – this was located about where Paradiso is now. A listener informed that he met Charley Pride at the café when dining. This was before the days of the Norsk Hostfest, when Charley was a rising star. Later the Bonanza Steak House was located at this location, followed by T-Bones and now Paradiso.
