This Restaurant Posts Funny Signs Every Day to Lift People’s Spirits

Funny Signs by El Arroyo Restaurant

While many are struggling with life under lockdown, some businesses are trying their best to spread a bit of joy throughout their communities. Tex-Mex restaurant El Arroyo, for example, has become an internet sensation for its funny, offbeat signs. The Austin-based establishment’s witty messages are updated daily and beloved by locals and online fans alike.

The nostalgic marquee sign has been around since El Arroyo was established in 1975, and remains an essential part of the landmark’s playful character. Every day, visitors can expect to see a new note posted on the placard. In the past El Arroyo has poked fun at a myriad of different topics, but recently the quirky restaurant has been trying to find some solace in the COVID-19 lockdown like the rest of us. Although their in-dining experience is temporarily closed, El Arroyo is still updating its Instagram with daily observations about life in quarantine. One sign reads, “My hands are consuming more alcohol than my mouth,” and another, “I need to practice some social distancing from the fridge.” They’re hilarious (and undeniably relatable).

Paige Winstanley, co-owner of El Arroyo, says about the sign: “In these times when much is unknown, El Arroyo finds our comfort in bringing smiles and laughter to our community on a daily basis.” Do you have a funny sign idea?
