El Arroyo Releases a Book of Their Clever Marquee Sign Sayings

By  | 

Those who drive down 5th Street in Austin know to look to their left when they pass by the intersection of Campbell Street where the popular Tex-Mex restaurant El Arroyo sits. Each day they have a joke written on their four-lined marquee that makes drivers chuckle and wish that they could snap a photo of the restaurant’s one-liners. Now, people won’t have to risk getting a ticket for breaking out their phones while they’re driving to capture the jokes. El Arroyo has released a new book called “El Arroyo’s Big Book of Signs Volume One” with photos of 158 of their marquee quips.

As Austin 360 writes, choosing which signs to feature was no easy task. “Though El Arroyo keeps its joke-writing process under wraps, representatives for the restaurant said the signs featured in the book were ‘generally picked based on how hard we were laughing reading,’” the news explains.

The hardback books are already up for sale on the El Arroyo website for $24.99 each. Those who want to mark off a bunch of people on their Christmas list can buy a gift set of 10 books for $237.41 (which saves you five percent) or a set of 20 hardbacks for $449.82 (saving 10 percent).
