World's Largest Bobblehead.

World's Largest Bobblehead

The Buckeye Express Diner, which features eating in a train, has added a new attraction to its outdoor sculptures. Billed as the "World's Largest Bobblehead," it looks like the twin to Handless Jacques in Marblehead. This chef is wearing a red coat, white pants, and is holding two hamburgers. He is visible from the interstate, but driving up to the restaurant is the best way to see him.

Modern Bobblehead fanatics might mock this crude giant, but he's too weird to be ignored.


Jacques: World's Largest Bobblehead?

You've already done Buckeye Tony's Diner and Terry Byrne's Mansion on Rails on Rt. 97 and I71 in Bellville, Ohio. Now, in between those two attractions, Terry is putting Jacque "the roast beef sandwich" guy back up... The stand up day was July 3rd.
