Neon roadside eatery signs are always great to see, both when you're hungry and in the mood for a good neon gem. This marquee for D&L's Texas Cafe still lights up the roadside along a boulevard in Austin.

The marquee for the El Patio Mexican Food restaurant in Austin just seems to stand out at night. I guess it helps when the sombrero on the sign is neon lit and a bright red. 05-04
