The Devil is, obviously, in the Details

Free breakfast offer modified

When I drove past this motel and restaurant, I couldn't stop laughing. My only guess is that, at one point, they'd been inundated with individuals in pursuit of free food.

If that had been the case, however, I wouldn't be surprised. The shot was taken in one of the worst areas of Fayetteville, North Carolina, a place I called home for many years and, truly, one of the ugliest cities you could ever drive into.

Mind you, the town is not completely ugly through and through. There are, in fact at least three, maybe four spots in the city that are not painful on the eyes. However, as others have remarked, there is no good way to enter Fayetteville. Any road or highway you choose as an entry point to the city leads you through something that looks like a burned out cinder, or one corner of a third world turf war.

And, of course, that's where you'll find "The Pancake House" and, I believe, the accompanying "Ambassador Motel". Ick.

Hi Tim! Just wanted to return your blog visits! Sorry i don't have much to add about the vitamins in previous posts, but I can certainly see why the pancake house would have to worry about random people wanting free breakfast! lol. I love signs like this and the ones that have two different meanings. :)

Thanks Teeni. Yeah, I thought the sign was hilarious. Despite what I said, I've eaten at this restaurant (years ago) and it wasn't really that bad. That part of town, however, is something else entirely. People have called Fayetteville North Carolina one of the ugliest cities in America. I didn't believe it until I moved away. Now, every time I go back, I cringe when I hit the city limits. They should plant some trees or do something to make it less burned out. However, its still not as bad as Jersey City up north. Nothing but smokestacks.
