Fast Food Design at Not Foolin’ Anybody

Old Ponderosa from Notfoolinganybody.comWe love It’s a website of fast food architecture; the premise is that once a building is a fast food building, it is ALWAYS a fast food building.

The site is quite addictive. Once you start looking at roadside chains, you can always spot them.

And it is not just Pizza Huts and Long John Silver’s.

Filling stations were once completely corporately designed by oil companies; vintage Shell, Texaco and Pure Oil stations can still be spotted. They also give identification guides, like the funky little Ponderosa drawing below.Ponderosa from

Apparently the site is going through a redesign.

Can’t wait to see what they do next.
