I spent most of the 80s out west in Tucson (the second best place I have ever lived except my family's REAL home) and there was a guy who set up a Chinese takeout in an old Photomat (remember them?), remotely situated near the street in a strip mall parking lot. Very convenient! He called the place "Wang in a Box".
The ALMOST worst name for a restaurant occurred in NE Atlanta while I was traveling through with some people. We wanted to eat and I had patronized a Vietnamese in an Asian section up there. The others kept asking me for the name to look out for it but I had never paid any attention to it while remembering where it was. For some reason, I was taking grief for not remembering an Asian name. As we got there and pulled into the lot, I pointed out where it was and was mortified to see a sign that titled it "Mi Dung"! Fortuneately, the sign was on the adjacent nail polish boutique but I still took a bad ribbing. It was a good thing that these were three old cherished friends, otherwise I might have gone Jeffry Dahmer and anfter a few minutes in the alley, sold the restaurant 300-400 pounds of fresh cat meat, CHEAP!

Stationed at Fort Knox May 1968-March 1970 there was a fast food joint in a little town just off the base on the way to E-town called Burger Queen, as I recall. I ate a bunch of their burgers back then. The town might have been Radcliff......
