DINO'S originally started out as the old State Cafe located at 84 W. Beale St. at the corner of Main & Beale. My grandfather opened there in 1941 where it served the busy downtown area three meals a day, six days a week from 1941 until Sept. of 1972. Unfortunately, urban renewal came through this part of downtown & we had to close up shop & find a new location. In January of 1973 we moved to 645 N. McLean. We love the midtown area & being in a neighborhood. In the 35 years of being at this location we have seen young couples getting married & starting their lives together. We have watched their children as they grew up; turning into young adults themselves. We have seen them go off to college, get jobs, start careers, get married & start their own families. We feel a sense of pride for them, as you, have allowed us to be a part of your wonderful family. You come in with your loved ones & you celebrate your lives together & you give us the very huge honor of being able to serve you on these special & memorable occasions. Thank you for letting us get to know you & giving us the opportunity to be a part of your family. Thank you for allowing us to make you a part of the DINO'S family as well. We hope to see you soon.
