I was wondering if anyone but myself still remembers a great hamburger place called Max-Ed's Drive-In. It was located directly across from the Ridge Road Drive-In in Griffith. A couple of years ago, two pictures of Fat Boy Restaurants were uploaded on this site but I could swear that the small restaurant shown is what later became Max-Ed's. You can see the "Fat Boy" name on the original picture but it's identical in shape and size to the Max-Ed sign that I scanned from my yearbook (not a good picture). The small building is identical to the building I remember as Max-Ed's and even the poles, supporting the sign, are identical in both pictures. I'm assuming that it was originally a Fat Boy Restaurant but it was eventually sold and became Max-Ed's. My wife still says they had the best onion rings she's ever tasted. Me and my girlfriend used to always stop at Max-Ed's before going to the Ridge Road Drive-In Theater. Does anyone else remember Max-Ed's?

I thought the same thing LS. It seems like the Max-Ed name was added to the original Fat Boy sign and you are right, it appears to be darker in that area.

Thanks for the response.

Looks like
the same sign to me. The "Fat Boy" neon signage replaced by the "Max & Ed's".
In fact, you can see the darker color of the background on the "Max & Ed's" part of the sign. Suggesting that is was newer than the rest of the sign, that had faded over the years.
The caricature looks to be the same as the original "Fat Boy", suggesting that the "Max & Ed's" joint was indeed, one and the same, as the original "Fat Boy".

I remember it, but I never ate there.
