Village Inn Pancake House / International Inn
Village Inn Pancake House once had two Bismarck locations. The first, at 405 S 7th Street, opened in 1972. It was the first Village Inn in North Dakota. That location became International Inn in 1986 before becoming Denny’s in 1988.
A second Village Inn Pancake House opens at 2240 N 12th in 1977. Like its south counterpart, the restaurant became International Inn in 1986. It continued for some time in this format, even after the south location closed. It later became International Stir Fry. Today, the site is home to LaQuinta.
Mr. Steak opened at 431 S 3rd Street in 1972. The site is later home to Jade Garden and Los Amigos. Today, it is home to CVS/pharmacy.
