Rock 'n' Roll McDonald's

You cannot tell from the outside, or even from the interstate, that this McDonald's is anything extraordinary, until you go inside. It is completely decorated with a rock 'n' roll theme: there's a small Elvis statue, life-size statues of the Blues Brothers, and many pictures of the Beatles, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe all over, as well as glass cases of memorabilia. Some of the tables are shaped: there's a guitar and a Coke bottle, and one of the tables has part of a car attached to it for sitting in.
