Does anyone have a picture of the Greensboro sign? I'm trying to find a pic from each city and that's the only one I  haven't been able to locate.

Thanks in advance!

We need Jamie, she lives in the LA area :)  I don't think it's In N Out, their fries have palm trees on the carton, and the buildings are kind of white with red. . . .  Fry dude is making me hungry though!

OK, I think it is this!  http://www.roadsidea...a.com/tip/36628
I thought it was fries from Checkers/Rally's for awhile and then finally found this by searching 'french fry statues'- was determined not to just go right to Roadside America, although it has the best article about this guy!  And it turns out there are a lot of 'Cannibal French Fry' or 'Drunken French Fry' guys throughout the US, but the rest all seem to have blue and white containers.  How have I missed ever seeing one of these??!!  :D  :D  :D
