Here on the southcoast we have seen many great restaurants that have disappeared. (more on that tomorrow) but for today, here is a list of restaurant chains that are ALMOST wiped out completely.

Lots of them were right here in our area.

Blimpie- We had one in Fairhaven

Ponderosa- Its now a car wash in Dartmouth

Bob's Big Boy- It's now a 99 Restaurant in Seekonk

Don Pablo's- Never heard of that one

Tony Roma's - Great steak place, but none ever around here

TCBY -  There used to be one right next to Fun 107

Damon's Grille and Sports Bar- None around here

Ground Round- I visited that place many times in Dartmouth

Bennigans- Famous for thier $4.99 burger meal
