The old Oronoka Restaurant was torn down yesterday.  The restaurant had been closed for over 11 years.  A local doctor will be setting up shop in a new building there soon.

The Oronoka was well known in the area for serving humongous portions of food, for it's party atmosphere and for it's scenic view of the Penobscot Valley Country Club golf course across the street.

This made me think about other Bangor area restaurants that are no longer with us, and which ones that I miss the most!

I really miss family restaurants, and Paul's on the Hogan Road in Bangor was one of my favorites.  Remember the old commercials where they featured a waiter who looked just like Oliver Hardy?  He would actually wait on us, and we loved the food!
