About my restaurant and the best employee who was never paid

First off, I changed my layout again. It's a Joker theme.


I got bored of the Santa theme. And this is pretty wicked.

Anywho, so I mentioned in passing that we got a call from the Food Channel's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. They were thinking featuring our restaurant in one of their segments.

Joe asked them how they heard about us and it was as I figured.

Our sign.


During the summer, the tourists swing by and love taking pictures of themselves by the sign. Then they come and and always say the same joke - "Truth in advertising, huh?" to which I reply, "OPEC has nothing on us."

They laugh, buy our food and are usually happy with us. Some people can't handle their grease intake. :P

If you would like to see a full picture of our place, click here.

This is my favorite picture of our place on flickr. If you want to see more, go to flickr and search for 'small fryes.' There's quite a few.

We sent off a compilation of the stuff they wanted (the Food Channel that is) and we'll see. I don't think they'll feature us personally.

Anywho, now for the second part of my post and the meaning of 'the best employee never paid.'
