St. Cloud Times:

In 1961, Al Kirmeier opened the Persian Supper Club on 33rd Avenue South and Stearns County Road 136, which at the time was several miles outside of St. Cloud. With its large dining room, great food and friendly staff, including Al and his wife, Pat, greeting visitors, it was soon one of the most popular eating establishments in the area. In 1961, they served a lobster dinner, which was a rarity in Central Minnesota at the time. The Persian also served an all-you-can-eat rib dinner on Wednesdays for $2.25
