big boy's restaurant, wright city, missouri
nothing to do with the big boy franchises of later, this restaurant was in operation since the 1920's, with the best old-fashioned home cooked fried chicken and dinners you could get. unfortunately, the stupid, selfish owners got themselves closed down recently over about 30k in back-taxes, and cheated everyone else out of jobs, great food, and a regional roadside institution, the likes of which you don't see anymore. it hasn't even been closed that long and it's already starting to deteriorate. sad.
