Carrols Hamburgers

The urban landscape was once dotted with fancy boomerang shapes proudly showing off its aerodynamic fins. Like the Cadillac fins and lately the stealth bomber, the triangular shape of these remnants are what's left of the wonderment of the mid-century space age. This Carrols Hamburgers was found in Las Vegas but is almost completely non-descript these days.

Ginseng BBQ Restaurant (Removed)

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." See the Ginseng and more at Roadside Peek's Foods of the Orient Las Vegas.

This sign sits outside of Cal's Food in Las Vegas. It's somewhat interesting due to the shape and different fonts on the sign. See this and more at Roadside Peek's Roadside Taverns Las Vegas.

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. See this and more at Roadside Peek's Mexican Food Cafes Las Vegas.

Check out this old Dairy Queen in Las Vegas. Built in 1962, the building resembles an old dairy... hmm. See this and more at Roadside Peek's Snacks and Stuff Las Vegas.
