Once Were Hardee's

Do these places look familiar? From a website called Not Fooling Anybody, "a chronicle of bad conversions and storefronts past."

At least they realize they aren't fooling anybody. They kept the "Hut."

I'm thinkin' Arby's

"House," I can accept. "Palace" is pushing it.

"Original" Pancake House.. originally a Ponderosa.

Get a bucket o' flattened, chicken-like meat product

They thought of keeping the statue, but Pario's Big Boy just didn't have the same ring to it.

I love this one. Pizza Hut in the old Burger King. I wonder if the pizza crust tastes like day-old Whaler buns.

Gee, I wonder what this used to be?

Make a run for the (Canadian) border.

One can only hope that this is an ice cream place now.

This one's in Atlanta. I've seen it. Which reminds me.. I need my car back.

No, the "T" didn't fall off. It was pushed. Sheer brilliance! Who needs new signs when you can just lop off the first letter of the old ones? I wonder if the same owners have other stations called "Hell" or "Moco" or "P"?

If a DQ couldn't make it here, what makes Hang think he can?

That's one way to get teenagers to take test SAT prep classes. Move into an old Pizza Hut.

Want your egg roll regular or extra crispy?

Welcome to Dairy K. Would you like to try a Snowstorm?

A cop station in an old Pizza Hut. They couldn't find an empty Dunkin' Donuts?

Somehow the architecture and the palm trees just don't say Boston to me.

"Can I get a different car? This one smells like -- I dunno -- like fried clam strips."

Welcome to McTaco's. Would you like a hot dog?

He couldn't find an empty Long John Silver's?

Long John Gyro's, home of railing and concrete. Must be next door to a nursing home.

Wok-o Bell

There's nothing American about this deli.

"Shhh, maybe no one will notice we're not Baskin Robbins anymore."

Yeah, that looks just like Philly.

All these empty Taco Bells, and John picks a Wendy's?

He's advertising to the helicopter crowd.
