Chroni's Famous Sandwich Shop
Los Angeles, CA
2008: 2013:
Chroni's Famous Sandwich Shop opened in 1945. The restaurant moved to this location in 1953. The pole sign was brought with the business and installed here. It is about 15 feet tall. Originally, the dog's tongue lapped at the giant hot dog and his tail wagged. The neon tubing was removed around 1985. The sign was repainted in 2008 just after the photo above was taken. The owner considered replacing the neon. However, an estimate of $4,000 and the fear of vandalism prevented him from doing so. [map]
