AAA Restaurant #6. US 287, Palestine, TX 75803

Another from the AAA restaurant. All deserted down on US 287 in Palestine, TX. It was the sign that got my attention. It was only on closer inspection that I realised the restaurant was empty, although, it seemed not for that long. I have since found out from a resident of Palestine that it has been closed at least 4 years and perhaps 5. A poke around the back revealed it was insecure and so I made a hurried entrance as it was on the main highway and I wondered if my empty car might draw attention. I have to say my heart skipped a few times as whilst inside as a cop car drove by two or three times! It was a great place, although I don't think I have ever shot a place quite so quickly! Here is a street view of the place.

It's written in big letters
Graffiti all over town
It says TROUBLEMAKERS ON THE RUN
And both our names are written down
Oh but infamy or fame
Each came in a small dose
I just wish the day would come
When the last one would be so close
