We’ve known since we published, Minnesota’s "Team Diarrhea" Cracks Salmonella Saintpaul Mystery, that all 27 of the Gopher State’s Salmonella Saintpaul victims ate at the same restaurant.   Now we know, from KAAL-TV 6, the name and location of that restaurant. 

It was The Good Earth in Roseville, MN. Accoding to Austin, MN television station:

Between June 13 and June 22, 27 people reported cases of salmonella to the Department of Health. Investigators were able to determine 20 were patrons and seven were Good Earth employees.
