Odd diner names.MB1

I went up to Adams-Morgan to get a freewheel for Miss M's fixte. For those not from DC Adams-Morgan is an area of the city in transition (from what to what I am not sure) with a very wide range and large number of places to eat.

I started to look at the names of some ot the eateries, "Eat Place" was good, "So's Your Mother" seemed odd but ok, I liked "The North Sea" a chinese place, then I saw the one I had to try "Cluck-U Chicken".

Unfortunatly they weren't open so I went downtown and had chinese at "1-Fish 2-Fish" which is near "Pop Eyes" (on "I" street).

Got any diner names for the odd list?

Is that the one on the corner of Divisadero and ? Sts. in San Francisco? That would have been my contribution to this thread.

called "Godzilla Meets Mt. Polomar" lunch was at the observitory. When the Godzilla movie came out their lawyers (surely not Dog) went after the promoter and forced him to change the name. Now it is the Butterfield DC-boring!
Not so much odd, but rather interesting:lonefrontranger

Some of my favorite Boulder haunts:

Illegal Pete's
The Hungry Toad
Wok n' Roll
Foolish Craig's
El Taco Loco (the crazy taco?) They have a big sign on the cash register: "You don't make fun of my English, I don't make fun of your Spanish"
The Sink (yes, it's a dive)

was a Kosher Chinese restaurant near the L.A. County Museum of Art. Genghis Cohen used to be an L.A. hot-spot.

Seriously, there's a diner outside Fayetteville, NC, called Osama's Place. Business has been a little off since September. I read about it in the newspaper here.
I'd guess business is a little off!! nmMB1

In Altoona, PA? Here for the tour de toona? Anyway, never heard of a Stumble Inn anywhere around here.....

It was at 'toona in '96 or '97; the hotel wasn't actually in Altoona, and with any luck, the health department has shut it down...

my favorites:Rusty McNasty

'Sam & Ella's diner'-somewhere near Malone, NY
'Stuff Yer Face'-E. brunswick, NJ
'Roses's Chinese-American Steakhouse'-Laramie, Wyoming (yes, you could order LoMein and a T-Bone, too!)
'Custard's Last Stand'-somewhere around Rapid City, SD
'Filthy McNasty's'-near Ithaca, NY (really liked that name!!)
and, my all-time favorite dish, as stated on the menu at a little resaurant in Longeuil, PQ (with a sign which said merely "Mets Chinoise"), in broken English (right after the Chinese and the broken French): "Chicken Ding wit Cow Balls".

The Bearded Clam, Santa Cruz CA (is it still there?)DINOSAUR
Nov 16, 2001 7:44 PM
It was on 17th Av in Santa Cruz. I used to like to make traffic stops in front of it and use my radio. The dipatchers had a policy that they had to repeat everything we said to make sure they got the message right. Funny responses with a lot of long lapses in between, especially if the dispatcher was new. The hard part was trying to get the car to pull over at exactly the right spot...
Are Heaven and Hell still running in AM?nova

Been awhile since I was in Adams Morgan. I remember going to a basement bar named "Hell". Then going upstairs to "Heaven". They were pretty lame but the concept was a good one.

I enjoy "House of Thai Chile" in Detroit, near the Zoo.
