Salad Bowl: Kaput?

I am guessing that the Salad Bowl Cafeteria, 3949 Lindell Blvd in St Louis, is no more. It is still listed online as a restaurant as of just a few years ago but I can't find it on Google Earth. Does anyone happen to know?

  1. No, I believe it closed up a few years ago. The building in which it was located had a huge fire earlier in July and was destroyed.

      Thanks for response. I suspected as much. Sorry to see it go. It had been there forever. Everywhere the good old-fashioned cafeterias are disappearing but we have no shortage of sushi and $12 hamburgers.

        The Salad Bowl closed in 2005. I believe the fire that just took place was in an apartment building on the site of the Salad Bowl but not the original building, although I could be mistaken. Here's some more info:
