Best Storefront / Sign

El Arroyo

With a name like the Ditch (en Español), it's a wonder this Austin hot spot keeps the business it does. But local happy hour goers continue to flock to the Fifth Street restaurant's outdoor patio and deck. Is it the sign? The Ditch has done it again this year, winning best sign by sometimes intriguing, and other times disgusting, drivers with their daily quips on the marquees. Sometimes the words are about the weather, although jobs involving a certain Monica are a common topic. Need we say more?
