ARCHIE'S, Roanoke VA




If you were the owner of Archie's, wouldn't you ask the guy with the dirty car to move?

The back of the card says it's "nationally known." We will, at this late date, have to take their word for it. But a note about the Lobster House: if you were selling crustaceans, Sea Food, and Steaks, what would you put on the sign? Of course: chickens.

As for the Town House, there's another piece of novel signage: a dog on leash, left alone.

Because everyone's inside, eating. And left him in in the lot.
