Wall, New Jersey
Twentieth century denizens of the Jersey shore really loved clowns -- especially manic cartoon versions that promoted various businesses. A few of these survive. We've written before about our old pal the Evil Food Circus Clown of Middletown. There's another required stop for any serious clown sign pilgrimage -- the Circus Drive-In.
The classic car-hop restaurant has been operating since 1954, and its crazy clown sign is as sparkly as when it was first erected. The building has a "big top" roof and the menu offers circus-themed items. You can still order a chocolate egg creme with your Bozoburger.
