awesome funny restaurant sandwich board signs

The proprietors of restaurants, bars, and cafes used to place sandwich boards out in front of their establishments to advertise specials and attract business. However, at some point the sandwich board signs ceased to have anything to do with the services provided inside. The thinking now seems to be something like, “today’s special? Not important. But how about our sense of humor? Pretty great, right? Could people this funny make bad food? No way!”

Does this tactic really work? Do people really chose one eatery over another because the sign out front is wittier? I don’t know. But I do know that I always get a kick out of these things when out for a stroll. So today I thought we’d take a look at some of the funniest restaurant signs that the great and powerful world wide web has to offer. If you got a few minutes to spare, check them out. I personally guarantee you’ll have a laugh or ten.

 

50. Fresh Drawers

So do you think they stole, borrowed, found, or purchased their used underwear?

Wait, aren’t pirates human too? Now I’m confused.

 

47. Bin Laden Burger

47 bin laden burger - funny awesome restaurant signs

To truly insult Osama Bin Laden, shouldn’t the burger have been made of pork?

 

46. Go Away, Republicans

46 romney burger - funny awesome restaurant signs

I’m guessing that this one isn’t located in an area with lots of Republicans. That, or the owner just doesn’t want their business.

 

45. Screw Mr. Rogers

45 not special - funny awesome restaurant signs

Mr. Rogers said every child is special. This sign begs to differ.

 

44. I am a bar

44 i am a bar - funny awesome restaurant signs

…just in case people in the neighborhood were unfamiliar with their business model.

 

43. Soup of the Day 1

43 soup of the day whiskey - funny awesome restaurant signs

Seriously, though, how amazing would a whiskey-based soup be?

 

42. Soup of the Day 2

42 soup of the day tequila - funny awesome restaurant signs

Hey, and a tequila-based soup would be pretty awesome as well. In fact, maybe I’ll just throw some in the next time I make tortilla soup and see how it goes.

 

41. Poetry

41 poems are hard - funny awesome restaurant signs

This one is funny in all, but to be honest they had me at “bacon.”

 

40. Happy Father's Day

happy father's day - funny awesome restaurant signs

Quick, someone call Glen Beck and tell him that some restaurant is making light of traditional family values!

 

39. Realists

eat here or we'll both starve - funny awesome restaurant signs

Well, you would starve. The would-be patrons would probably just find food somewhere else.

 

38. Calculus of Booze

mathematics - funny awesome restaurant signs

I don’t remember much from high school calculus, but this seems about right.

 

37. But don't drink and do calculus

I knew they had gay bars, but I had no idea they had nerd bars.

 

36. Leonardo Prefers Espresso

I’m not sure why they went with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles them here, but I like it.

 

35. Drink for the Cure

beer cures cancer - funny awesome restaurant signs

I’m not big on walking, running, or getting people pledge money. But if somebody would organize a drink-a-thon to benefit cancer research, I’d be there.

 

34. Fried Baby Octopus

fried baby octopus - funny awesome restaurant signs

Are baby octopuses really any more tasty than full-grown adult octopuses?

 

33. Wasted O'Clock?

get wasted - funny awesome restaurant signs

Look closely and notice that whoever wrote the sign at first put an “i” in wasted.

Haha, you’re not perfect!

 

32. Fat Not So Bad

fat people are harder to kidnap - funny awesome restaurant signs

This is what I’ve been sayin.

 

31. Canine Chemist

He may have no idea what he’s doing, but I’m still impressed. My dog can’t speak.

 

30. The Fry Meme

futurama pho - funny awesome restaurant signs

Memes: they’re not just for the internets.

(This one is funny because based on a fundamental truth: Pho will not fill you up.)

 

29. No Graffiti

don't write on the walls - funny awesome restaurant signs

Well, I care, but I guess I’m in the minority.

 

28. English Humor

Get it? The glasses aren’t dirty! It’s like Monty Python in sign form—those crazy Brits!

 

27. Hot Balls

hot balls - funny awesome restaurant signs

This pretty much says it all. If you’re not interesting in hot balls, this place ain’t for you.

 

26. One for the Price of Two

buy one for price of two - funny awesome restaurant signs

We laugh, but consumers are gullible. If not, why would everything on earth be priced $499.99, or $2.95? We all know that they mean $500 or $3, and yet pricing like that must work or they wouldn’t do it.

So who knows, this sign might actually trick people into thinking they’re getting a deal.

 

25. Something Witty

something witty - funny awesome restaurant signs

Such is the kind of humor you’d expect from a place called “Fuel & Fuddle.”

Like I said, memes aren’t just for the internet.

 

22. Bacon-Loving

I know, this one isn’t a sandwich board sign. But how could I ignore such sage wisdom?

 

21. Would you rather...

duck-sized horses - funny awesome restaurant signs

I think I’d go with the 100 duck-sized horses. A horse-sized duck would mess you up.

 

20. Your Momma

your momma - funny awesome restaurant signs

Apparently your momma is a gypsy?

 

19. Drink Special

special offer - funny awesome restaurant signs

Depending on where you are, this actually is a good deal. At most dance clubs, for example, you usually get one drink for the price of three.

 

18. Sign of the Times

pizza and police - funny awesome restaurant signs

I’m not sure if this bit of social commentary is praise for the pizza delivery industry or criticism of the police. You be the judge.

 

17. Simplicity

egg - funny awesome restaurant signs

This sign says so little, and yet so much.

 

16. Antagonistic Flower

angry flower - funny awesome restaurant signs

Ironically, hipsters usually have jobs…at restaurants…where they think of clever things to write on sandwich board signs.

 

15. Reality TV-Themed Sushi

jon and kate plus sushi - funny awesome restaurant signs

I wouldn’t say Jon & Kate were annoying. Just Kate, really. But yes, sushi is awesome.

 

14. Burgercop

burger police - funny awesome restaurant signs

I had a dream like this once, only the hamburger policeman didn’t spray me with mace.

 

13. Awaiting the Apocalypse

no coffee in hell - funny awesome restaurant signs

Funny, but inaccurate. There most certainly is coffee in hell—it’s decaf Folgers instant “flavor crystals.”

 

12. Like a Shellshocked Russian

fall of berlin - funny awesome restaurant signs

If this is true—and I assume it is—that’s amazing. I don’t know about getting on their level, though, because I suspect a great many of them would have died from drinking exotic fish alcohol.

 

11. Mexican Brad Pitt

mexican brad pitt - funny awesome restaurant signs

Who wouldn’t want their chalupa delivered by Mexican Brad Pitt?

 

10. DRINK ALL THE BOOZE!

10 drink all the booze - funny awesome restaurant signs

This one is based on a brilliant comic by Hyperbole and a Half. (It’s a sentiment I experience often.)

 

9. Bac 'n Rolls

9 sex drugs bacon rolls - funny awesome restaurant signs

One of the best puns ever. I want to go to there.

 

8. Angry Old Man...or Woman?

8 angry old man - funny awesome restaurant signs

Man or woman, the sign makes a good point.

 

7. Chuck

7 chuck norris - funny awesome restaurant signs

What does this place serve? Pizza? Liquor? Tea? Who cares. I’d go in just because of the sign.

 

6. Ill-Fated Promotions

6 shitfaced mondays cancelled - funny awesome restaurant signs

Don’t worry, though, Tipsy Tuesdays are still on.

 

5. Carnivorous Winnie the Pooh

5 winnie the pooh eating piglette - funny awesome restaurant signs

This is one of the most disturbing things I’ve ever seen, and yet I can’t help but laugh because, well, he is a bear.

 

4. 99 Cookies

4 99 cookies - funny awesome restaurant signs

Jay-Z and Sesame Street—two of my favorite things. And it begs the question: why hasn’t Jay-Z actually been on Sesame Street? He could rap with Grover. It would be epic.

 

3. Soup of the Day

3 tears of our enemies - funny awesome restaurant signs

“I’ll have the club sandwich.”

“And what would you like as a side—fries, salad, or a bowl of vengence?”

 

2. Drunk Enough?

2 are you drunk enough - funny awesome restaurant signs

Everyone print this picture and put it in your wallet for handy reference. (I’d say bookmark it on your phone, but if you are drunk enough then you won’t be able to access it and will just end up dropping the phone in the toilet.)

 

1. Worst. Meatball. Sandwich. EVER.

1 worst meatball sandwich - funny awesome restaurant signs

I love it. Online user reviews can be so stupid sometimes. And anyway, I don’t mean to get too philosophical on you, but technically even a great meatball sandwich could be the worst meatball sandwich you’ve ever eaten—because if you only ever ate really good meatball sandwiches, the least amazing one would be the “worst” ever.

Just sayin.
