The El Comedor de Anayas Resturant originally opened in 1952 and the Roto-Sphere sign was installed in the 1960's.  The sign was restored in 2002 as one of 9 Route 66 signs with federal grant money.<br />
<br />
Roto-Sphere signs are perhaps the biggest and most dramatic neon signs ever mass-produced. They were created and produced by Warren Milks from 1960-1971. Milks made approximately 234 of them and only about 17 of them are left. Of these, only seven are fully operational.
