Old School Fast Food Disappears on Lindell

Spread the love

Lindell Boulevard in Central West End
St. Louis City, MO
Where did this sign go to? Did it survive? If so, does anyone know where it is?

Here was Arby’s on August 19, 2006. The old style neon sign remained in place even after a harrowing storm that caused damage in the immediate area. But I guess it’s days were numbered…

Those 2 signs made a nice old school fast food tableau. Across the street (still) stands the 1970s-issue counting McDonald’s sign, now forever parked at 99 billion. So it’s momentarily safe. But the Wendy’s became a Jack in the Box…

…and the Arby’s became a brand new building with a boring-ass sign. Where’s imagination gone to? And where did the formerly fabulous sign go to? I do hope it’s resting peacefully with all the potato cakes it could ever possibly wish for.

  1. Man, that sign was above the Arby’s that contributed to my massive weight gain during my first pregnancy 12 years ago. I worked just down the street on Vandeventer. You know, an Arby-Q, potato cakes and a Jamocha shake every day for lunch is NOT what the doctor ordered. How tragic.

    Heck, I’m still mourning the loss of Flaco’s…

  2. I have no idea what happened to the sign but it may have been a casualty of the arson that took out the building ….

    sad to say, it’s in the neighborhood but I hadn’t noticed it.
