          Looking at those prices, we may need to guess what year (or decade) this restaurant is in!

            The prices are so low that the sign must be ancient

            so

            we're back to Gary, Indiana

              Because I was there when the picture was taken (not by me),  I guess I should not answer where this is.  Indiana and Ohio are a bit off the track.

                That is truly one of the best (and worst) threads in Roadfood history.

                As for the photo, I don't think I have ever seen it spelled muzzarelli before.

                  Well, BT's presence then is the clue that leads to this thread

                  and therefore to Modern Apizza

                    I admit to sharing my meal at this restaurant with another Roadfooder, I don't think it was you - since, I am pretty sure you and I have not yet met.  Were you there the same day I was and saw me take this photo?  That would be truly ironic.

                      Don't you remember all we talked about at that meal?  Actually, you are right that I was not with you.  We have not met yet, but I hope to do so one day.  In reality, I thought that the picture was one that Chris took on our visit to Modern Appiza, and Mr. Jackson so brilliantly figured out above.  I guess if I had been thinking, I would have asked myself, "Where did TTM get Chris's picture?"  Sorry for confusing everyone. Perhaps this leads to the thread about whether we post more or less, with my answer being that I post more and have fewer and fewer clues about what I am doing.
                      Now, of course, I am hoping that I have the right restaurant in mind, although I do remember the sign.

                        Modern Appizza is, of course, correct.  I keep trying to use photos that I haven't used before in trip reports and such - just to make the hunt a little more fun.  But, this one was still solved in under an hour.

                        We commented on the spelling of "muzzarelli," as well.  The one thing I forgot to do was ask what year the menu was from.  

                        I need to find another photo to upload.  If anyone else has one ready to go, then fire away!

                            The funny thing about that picture is that I was accosted by one of the busboys while I was taking it.  He wanted to know what I used my pictures for - because "some of this stuff is proprietary!"  Ummm....OK.  Busted.  I took it so that I could someday use it in a stupid made-up game that I hadn't even thought of at the time.

                            I wonder if Chris got the same hairy eyeball that I did...or, this was just one more in my fantastic series of making friends while taking pictures?

                                                If ANY idiot could guess it, why would I?  I need to guess on the ones where only a few idiots might know it.

                                                This one could go in record time....

                                                        Here's one that I think could be more of a challenge.  I did eat here with a fellow Roadfooder.

                                                            Mae's Phinney Ridge Cafe is correct.  I didn't realize that a nearly identical photo was in the online review.  It took a little longer - an hour and change - but, I am amazed you sleuthed this one out so quickly, TJ.  I even Googled "roadfood.com cow theme restaurant" to see what would come up in the search and there were almost 1,000 responses - and I still couldn't find Mae's - and I knew what I was looking for! 

                                                            I thought this one was pretty obscure - unless mr chips stumbled into the thread!  I was trying to relieve some of that standard "east coast bias."
