The Classic “Big Hat” Arby’s Sign

I am not a huger fan of the Arby’s chain of restaurants, but every time I have gone to an Arby’s it has been because of the magnetic power of these retro signs. When I see one on the side of a highway, I feel compelled to pull over an marvel at it. And as long as I am there…why not some roast beef? This great photo was posted in the Retroist Image Pool by photographer, justintron.

    They used to have one of those at a Michigan City, IN store. I know it was there up through the 80s. The even had a mosaic tile floor with pictures of steer as I recall.
