Some more good ones I found looking through my old photos.
Frank’s Diner in Spokane
Southern Kitchen in Virginia
Wendell Smith’s aka Booze & Biscuits
Schwabl’s outside Buffalo
Don’s Drive-in in Michigan
This is the old sign … it was destroyed in the hurricane … They made a new one that is a decent facsimile. I’ll see if I have a new picture.
I was looking through some old photos of mine and found a few other pretty good ones.
Barbara Fritchie Candystick Restaurant in Maryland
Wolfy’s in Chicago
The Cherry Hut in Michigan
Found this one next to the hotel I was staying at in New Hampshire
Thanks for the response, it looks like a great place. Since sauerbraten is one of my favorite dishes, that really caught my eye. I will definitely try this place next time I am in the area.
It sure is. That’s not my photo, just pulled it off Google images. I did take a pic a few years ago with my early digital camera, but very poor resolution and lighting. It was also on TV recently for an auto mfr. commercial featuring a family driving in their minivan, the poor kid in the backseat in desperate need of a pitstop. The lit sign is his salvation. Cute ad and nice to see this almost local, almost landmark.
It’s on Route 25 in Aquebogue, Long Island…
Beautiful sign! Where is this place?
Here is my collection of signs. The first is Dave’s Lake Shack near Pokagon State Park in Indiana with the peace symbol background.
The next is a classic fairgrounds stand that makes the whole building a sign. This is the Jurassic Stand at the Minnesota State Fair.
Here is Rudy’s Drive-in sign in La Crosse, WI when Food Network’s Sandra Lee was in town for the Oktoberfest.
This is the Minnetonka Drive-in sign when classic cars congregate every Thursday night.
The wildest sign of all, Jerry’s Woodsweather Cafe cartoon mural in Kansas City.
Another good one I found, The Laredo, somewhere in Washington state.
A few of my favorites:
Original New York System in Providence
Maddox Ranch House in Utah (which revolves)
Mint Bar in Wyoming (which looks even better at night)
I’ve always admired the Philippe sign in Downtown L.A.
They are open year round.
Superdawg was just a short bike ride from my house in Lincolnwood, IL back in the 50’s.
Great call on the sign at Leon’s…..it is one of my favorites. Assuming they are still open year round, I plan on getting custard from there this weekend.
