German-born Brigitte Olson is known as a wunderkind restauranteur in St. Cloud, according to an interview on AM 1240 WJON's website. She's been working at and running various restaurants in the area since the 1960s, providing people with tasty comfort food and German favorites. She confesses that she has a particular way of doing things—chairs must always be pushed in when they're not in use and napkins have to be carefully placed on the table after they're folded to resemble Abraham Lincoln—but her meticulous style is embraced by her employees. In fact, some of them have worked for her and her family for 30 years.
Though Brigitte now spends a lot of her time basking in the Florida sunshine, she still ventures up to St. Cloud during the summer months to see how things are going at Brigitte's Cafe, which is currently run by her children. They follow in their mom's footsteps and serve welcoming comfort food, such as egg dishes, tater tots, and meats laden with savory gravy.
The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.
Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
The ruleta wheel at Pancho Villa Mexican Restaurant sends tablefuls of friends into a frenzy when one of the bunch is chosen to take a spin. Landing on the right space in this wheel can grant the entire table free drinks from a selection of specialty margaritas and cocktails. This is just one of the ways the staff amps up the festive atmosphere in the restaurant—there's also karaoke every night Thursday through Sunday. And thanks to the flat screen televisions, patrons can keep an eye on their favorite teams as they face off with rivals or trade secrets for keeping their shoelaces tied.
Patrons come as much for the atmosphere as they do for the menu of chicken flautas, cheese enchiladas, shrimp chimichangas, pork ribs, and other traditional Mexican cuisine. When the weather's nice they can dine outside, where umbrellas protect their entrees from the sun's sticky fingers. Regular lunch specials and the Monticello location's lunch buffet make midday dining even more enticing.
You'll have a major decision to make at Olde Main Eatery: breakfast or lunch? An all-day breakfast menu of omelets and biscuits and gravy pits itself against a slate of light wraps and hearty patty melts. The french toast tempts with its light cinnamon coating, as do burgers and build-your-own deli sandwiches stacked on sourdough, marble rye, and croissant slices. The 150 year old diner itself exudes an air of small-town Americana, from its green- and white-striped awning and historic photographs lining the wall, to the staff's impromptu productions of The Music Man.
