Where has the era of Roadbouses gone? This is one of the few left. Went out and ordered the dream meal most kids want. Glad I could squeeze in the time for this shot as life a bit hectic in Africa.

Thanks for all comments and it looks like many people could relate to this and get the minds to ponder yesteryears. :)

i can see the image just fine, a 6 from me. i loved the use of food in the foreground and the lighting looks to have been challenging, but what detracted for me was the overblown red glare on the roof, it kept pulling my eye there even though i wanted to focus on the subject, the food.

Oh my gosh I am getting hungry. That banana split looks...amazing. I love how you incorporated the food. I wish you would have no included the car on the left though. The switching between red and green on the right is excellent and the detail on the roof is wonderfully captured.

A nice square meal. Is that tray hung on your car door, and what is in the clear liquid in the clear condiment container? Good shot.

Real cool. Brings back memories to me of the "Dollshouse" in Louis Botha avenue and "Pure and Cool" in Malvern. That banana split looks delicious.

Love the perspective you shot this from and a good use of UWA lens. Feels a little empty on the right hand side and might have befefited from some lens distortion correction but overall a good shot. Hope it does well!

I like the perspective. I think it would look better if the food was a bit OOF to draw attention to the restaurant.

Is that a vinegar bottle? great shot. Nice palms and nice colors.

Oh man this brings back memories! Love their ice cream. I miss Pretoria. Used to live in Sunnyside.

Great shot! Wish the burger and slap chips were lit similar to the roomys. Good luck (not voting)
