Top Spot Drive Inn
650 South Main Street in Cedar City, Utah
The Thunderbird opened in 1940, making it one of Utah’s oldest restaurants that is still around. The sign outside this family-owned restaurant advertises “ho-made” pies because the first owner, Ed Myers, couldn’t find a board big enough to write out the whole word. Now his grandson operates the restaurant.
I love the cool vintage neon sign.
Located at 4530 State Street in Mount Carmel Junction, Utah
