The Last Happy Chef Statue

Saves: 4
Check-ins: 3
The Happy Chef Restaurant in Mankato, Minnesota is the last survivor of this iconic roadside franchise restaurant. And it's the only place to eat with its own talking spoon Happy Chef statue! (Ironically, the message is sometimes sad according to a few accounts.). At any rate, he's a big, bow-legged chef waving a big spoon at all the motorists passing by on Highway 169 to stop in and have a bite to eat. (Photo by Dennis Sanford)
