The restaurant biz is super competitive, which is why standing out from every other place is a key compenent to success. Of course a good restaurant should have great food, but first impressions (aka the kind that happen before you even walk into an establishment) are often overlooked. This is where creative signs come into play.

Those sidewalk sketches do way more than list the day's specials. If you look close enough, some of 'em are pretty darn clever. Maybe a Bruce Springsteen drawing helps to advertise a Corn in the USA dish, or perhaps an awful poem draws in the crowds. Regardless, we're huge fans of these 12 creative restaurant signs.
