When this Lucky Wishbone opened in the 1954, people predicted that it wouldn't make it because, and I'm not making this up, they believed that no reasonable person would get out of their car and go in to the restaurant to get their food. Restaurants in those days were dine-in or carhop. Go in and carry out? No way.

The original sign shown above, was left in place. Only one side of the sign still lights up and the owners are prohibited from fixing it because it violates our current sign code. In the land of bureaucrats a broken down, poorly maintained sign is preferable to a spiffy, well-functioning one.
Local government at its finest.
