If only we had a time machine, then the next Geyser of Awesome Field Trip would be travel back in time to Los Angeles to visit these amazing roadside attraction restaurants shaped like giant food, animals, and housewares. Some of these buildings are still around today, but the idea of an all-day LA wacky restaurant hop in their heyday sounds like a truly awesome afternoon.

Believe it or not, there are many more where these came from. Head over Vintage Everyday, where they’ve assembled a collection of photos of 22 unusual old Los Angeles restaurants along with information about each one. And say hello to the Chicken Boy while you’re there:
