Where else can you get good oysters other than at a place called The Pearl? The marquee for this restaurant also lights up a night.

It is a hopping shame that his place sunk. All that remains of the Ellis Restaurant are traces of neon frogs which once must have jumped across there marquee. The defunct eatery is part of a row of boarded buildings along Chestnut Street in Chattanooga, TN. Directly across, is the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel where guests have the opportunity to sleep in converted railroad cars.

Check out Country's Barbecue in Columbus, Georgia. At one time, this was a Trailways Bus Station that was slated for demolition. The sign kept the original "Air Conditioned" neon work from the old sign (located near the bottom). The owner of Country's parked a 50's bus against the restaurant and opened a doorway between them to allow patrons to eat on the bus itself.

If you follow Route 9 into Downtown Spartanburg you will see two classic diners across from one another. Simple Simon, by all accounts, seems closed. A weird googie looking ball is mounted above the front door.
