Well, Hopefully The Food Is Better Than The Design At These Restaurants (40 Photos)

Restaurants had a tough year. Finally, we’re getting back to normal and going back to our favorite spots. Some fancy or crappy places, however, can maybe throw in the towel now.

Personally, I’d never want to own a bar or restaurant. It’s too much responsibility! Plus, you have to deal with customers who mistreat your staff and your perfectly planned hospitality.

One thing I hadn’t thought of though was the fact that I might make design mistakes. Nobody’s perfect, but the people who made these design choices at restaurants were not thinking things through.

We’ve covered “We Want Plates” here before, but these fails are far more sinister.

Thankfully, the Reddit users who add to r/CrappyDesign know how funny a picture of poor design can be. We’re all here to laugh at the mistakes business owners made.

Here are the funniest terrible designs restaurant owners really tried. Hopefully, their food is better:


1. I can’t unsee this sign.

2. Someone forgot to actually translate the menu.
