Had a local restaurant called "A Good Place to Eat" The name should have been preceeded by a "Not". :}

Phyllis Diller would often refer to a place called "The Hungry Eye" on her comedy bits.

There is a Thai restaurant near my place calle Wang Kaew!
Maybe my pronunciation is wrong but it always makes me think of tossing in some noodles!:uhoh:

That was a place called 'The Hungry I,' actually. 'I' for 'Intellect,' since it was a North Beach, San Francisco coffee house back when stand-up comedy was new.

In Castle Donington villaage, there is/used to be a cafe/bistro called the "Far Call", owned by a certain ex-air stewardess. Apparently, the local planners would not approve the first choice of " A Pant in the Country".

Many years ago, Mrs K ( actually she was Miss G at the time) & I had a holiday in Mallorca. We stayed in Pollensa but drove through Alcudia everyday. On one side of the road was an eaterie named 'Willyburger' and on the other side was its twin, aptly named 'Fannyburger'
