Today’s Top 5

Johnny Rockets

Looks like a spitting image of the retro chain Johnny Rockets, except they're getting a bit more than 5 cents for a burger these days.

Kellogg's Pep!

I like that the bowl stands ready to serve the Kellogg's cereal, behind the waitress's head. That's… charming.

Bait and Switch

The exterior sign lures you with 5 cent hamburgers, but once inside you learn they are actually 9 cents. Still want to buy a bagful?

[Look again. The sign inside says Hamburgers 5¢. - Dave]

Tidy whitey, almost

Wow, at first glance, impeccable, clean and gleam until one notices the floor, but I'll still have a piece of pie for ten cents.
