The Ginseng BBQ Restaurant in Vegas features a marquee with a strange looking shape and top. Why? Well, of course. This is the sign for the former El Morocco of yester Vegas fame. Lately, the crown on top was flattened for some reason (not pictured), bringing new meaning to the term "flat top."

Looking to stop at a Bob's Big Boy while in Vegas? Well, you're out of luck. The Chapel of Love now occupies the building that Bob's used to be in.

Said to be the oldest restaurant in Vegas back in the late 1990's, the Green Shack began serving its famous friend chicken and mashed potatoes back in the early 1930's. However, dwindling business proved fatal and the Green Shack went belly up in 1999. The restaurant was a notable part of Vegas history and had been placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

Here's a more recent shot of the Lake Mead Rancheros in Las Vegas. Not sure if this place is still open, but from the looks of things, not much has changed on the exterior over the years.

This neon sign for In N Out Burger in Las Vegas is actually a huge bright sign that competes with the rest of the bright lights here. 01-09
