Angelo Man: a Papa Burger

Vintage fiberglass statue, normally one of a family of four -- but it's just Dad. And this is not an A&W Root Beer location. A 2017 makeover gave Papa a painted-on mustache, eyeglasses, and arm tattoo.

Papa Burger - A&W Root Beer Family

We saw the Papa Burger statue outside of Angelo's on our way to Cafe 101. This statue is one of the A&W Root Beer family members. I am not sure if there used to be an A&W's at this location, or if it was brought in later. The statue is pretty close to original, with the exception of a few paint color changes. I didn't realize that there was a Papa Burger at this location, so I was very excited when we stumbled upon this by surprise.
