    Funny/Clever restaurant names

    I went to the bank today and they always have a local display of some business. This one caught my eye. A new deli style eatery called "On a Roll". I thought it was such a cute name which lead me to think of other eateries with cute names. I think the best in my area is "Azu"......because it is very hip and crowded that it becomes A Zoo

    What fun names of local places can you share???

    There's an excellent new bakery in Toronto that is called Flaky Tart. I'm not on the bandwagon, but two people I know think it's the best name for a bakery ever.

    I've seen an establishment (I assume a bar/restaurant) called the "Stumble Inn". Always thought that was cute.

    I knew of a baked potato place in the mall food court several years ago called "A Meal with Appeal" I thought that was so clever.

    Monica Pope recently opened up a BBQ place in Houston called Beaver's. They serve Beaver Balls for dessert . Basically, they are these amazing chocolate donut holes! They have funny shirts and one says, "Beaver's, just south of Hooter's".

    There used to be a bar in Dayton, Ohio that was on Needmore Road. The bar was called Need One More. I always thought that was clever.

    I've seen a restaurant called What The Pho? in Huntington Beach, CA. DH loves pho, and wishes that some of our local places would adopt that name instead of the usual Hao Viet #whatever.

    There used to be a soft-serve ice cream shop of Curry Ford Road --

    Custard's Last Stand

    I guess it really was his last stand. It's gone.

    Our church has a coffee shop named HeBrews.
    Okay...it's time to pull up your big-girl panties and get on with it. (Seen on a bathroom wall.)

    In the same vein, we have a place called "Come Back Inn"

    There's a Mexican restaurant in Austin named Juan in a Million. Good food, too!

    Several years ago I heard of a bistro in Cleveland named Harry Corvair (think French green beans ), but I think it's closed.

    Across from the General Electric plant in Cincinnati is a hot dog stand called "Queenie's Weenies."

    There was a Custard's Last Stand in Buffalo, too.

    In 'downtown' Auburn, AL, there's a handbag store called Purse-pic-asity!

    A few I can think of are an upscale bistro in Cambridge, MA, which is located in a basement is called "Cafe Celador" (cellar door); a Chinese place in Boston is called "Wok In," and at Disneyland on the Hollywood Studios backlot there's a hot dog place called "Award Weiners" with a tagline of "Best Hot Dog in a Supporting Roll." (However, DH and DS who ate there said their dogs do NOT live up to their star billing.)
