You mean you want to give up after only a year!
 
It's from Toki Ona Diner in Elko, Nevada.  With it being a Basque meal, I thought WJ had the best shot of guessing it.

TTM-
Being your Facebook friend helps me limit it to where you have been lately, but that could still put it in Seattle, NYC, Philly, Baltimore, DC or North Carolina.  Maybe more.....

I know I hit 7 Basque Restaurants on the Rocky Mountain Highs and Big Skies trip trip I took over 4 years ago, unfortunately , Toki Ona Diner wasn't one of them.

WJ-
But, at least you would recognize a Basque meal when you see one and would know what part of the country to look in.

Actually the Spaghetti was the dead give away....
I remember going to a Basque Restaurant in Bakersfield CA back in 1996 when I moved from Seattle to Pittsburgh. It was in the dead of winter and my mother was still living in Albuquerque at the time. I wanted to avoid the wintry mountain passes , and Northern California was going through a warm spell, so I took the Southern Route stopping over night in Portland OR (to visit friends), Sacramento CA, Kingman AZ, Abuquerque (two nights), OK City, Tulsa (unexpected overnight due to ice storm) Effingham IL and then Pittsburgh  I don't recall the name of the Basque Restaurant in Bakersfied, it could have been Chalet Basque. Anyway it was the first time (and I'm pretty sure the last) that I had spaghetti served to me at a Basque Restaurant.

I have been to all of those places, except New York City, within the last 10-12 days...and more.

I wish I could guess on this but I do not often go into the men's room in any restaurant, except when the line-up for the women's room is too long!

Boy, that toilet picture is worrisome. Sure hope the explosions don't come out of the patron AFTER the meal!" />

Greymo - If you are implying that a sign such as this could never be found in a ladies' room, then you have never met my ex-wife! 
 
billyboy - Le Tub seems almost like too obvious a choice, doesn't it? It is too obvious and incorrect. Also, I am not sure if there has ever been a review for Le Tub.
 
mlm - My meal here was delicious. The place was far more upscale than its name or this picture might otherwise indicate.

Well, I was going to guess The Crab Shack.  But it certainly isn't upscale.  And it doesn't appear to be reviewed on here anymore.

When I lived in France, I once spent 2 weeks vacation in Basque.  Specifically the little mountain village of Itxassou.  The food was beyond belief.  But I never ate nor saw spaghetti.

Hey TTM, looks like no one has been able to guess this after approximately nine months.  It may be time to give us the explosive answer.

Wow. I forgot. I have to go back through my pictures...and match against my Foursquare account to see where I was.

Yeah - I had to do some sleuthing on that one. I couldn't even remember what vacation that could have been. Fortunately, Foursquare didn't let me down. Once I narrowed the time frame down, I knew I would know where it was once I saw the name of the place.
 
Your answer
 
An obscure clue for a pretty obscure Roadfood restaurant. I'd guess you'd have to have gone there to see it.

Unfortunately, a restaurant I have never visited.  And it isn't even located in one of the places I listed earlier.  Still a terrific photo!
