Traveling through Phoenix is not the same without a roadside look at Mr. Lucky's. In business since the 1960's, Mr. Lucky's and its joker-like sign is a real head-turner, especially at night. Alas, as many good things come to an end, Mr. Lucky's has closed down for good. Finding a good roadside sign is becoming a rarity these days as these businesses that date back decades are shutting down at an alarming rate. 07-05
