A fancy tee pee themed location is the Tee Pee Restaurant. Based near the Smoky Mountains National Park, stop by this roadside treasure when you're in the area and grab some eats. This business was still going strong in 1998.

Check out Country's Barbecue in Columbus, Georgia. At one time, this was a Trailways Bus Station that was slated for demolition. The sign kept the original "Air Conditioned" neon work from the old sign (located near the bottom). The owner of Country's parked a 50's bus against the restaurant and opened a doorway between them to allow patrons to eat on the bus itself.
