Have you have eaten at or come across a restaurant with an unusual or funny name? Lots of time the name is more intriguing than the menu, and it is usually the thing you remember long after?
The Crabby Oyster -- southern VA seafood house
The Happy Clam -- Fredericksburg VA
Shang Chai -- Kosher Chinese in Brooklyn (chai is Hebrew symbol for luck)
Chip n' Dales -- the names of the 2 owners of a rather seedy diner in Southern NJ
Chez Wat -- soul food/Chinese restaurant in Philly in 1970s
And, although the restaurant name was not unusual, the signs throughout central PA were and said (I kid you not):
"Stop at Mary's Kitchen for good food and gas" -- I assume it was a restaurant with a service station attached.
Programs: UA Lifetime Premier Gold FT Member # 642
Cabbage and Condoms Bangkok, Thailand
Cabbage & Condom Restaurant
Sukhumvit, Soi 12
Main/Specialty: Thai. Very nicely laid out – Eat in or outside – no they are not balloons on the walls. Condom photos everywhere, with lots of condom paraphernalia adorning the walls etc. (Started by the Minister for Family Planning (Khun Mechai) several years ago to heighten the awareness of safe sex) Heaps on offer with an English Menu. This is an enticing restaurant – it welcomes you from the Soi; the ambience is quiet and the decorations ‘interesting’. The check/bill came with a condom.

[quote=FlyinHawaiian]There's two places in Cave Creek, AZ (near Scottsdale) that serve really good BBQ - The Horny Toad and The Satisfied Frog.QUOTE]
I would not recommend the Horny Toad anymore. While they make some fine BBQ sauce, their prices are becoming outrageous. Last time I was there they wanted over $35 for a single rack of ribs.
Better head down Scottsdale Rd and head to Grilled Expedition at Desert Ridge which IMHO has the best ribs in the Valley right now. Not really BBQ ribs per se (They're basted in a Hoisin-Coffee sauce) but damn are they tender. The meat just falls off when you pick up the rib.

Even more OT:
If tender ribs is what you're looking for, don't stop by this back yard late tonight. Doing them nice and dry today in the smoker today. =)
And now back in the direction of Slightly OT:
And I wasn't impressed with The Horny Toad 5 years ago.
And now OnT:
"He's Not Here" on Harlem in Forest Park. Well, actually, more of a bar, but they served pub grub. Too bad they're not there any more. Wonder if they changed the sign to "We're Not Here" the day they closed.
Q: Why does TSA not provide shoehorns at screening checkpoints?
A: Because they don't require you to take off your shoes.
