We stopped in Atlanta to see this statue and the Arcade Games Museum. Unfortunately the museum was closed but the statue was very cool. The Palms Grill Cafe across the road is really good and worth stopping for.

Stopped here years ago while I was in town geocaching. Then a second time to really view this attraction while I was riding the old Route 66. Glad I stopped and read the sign about this guy.

It's a recommended visit for Route 66. Interesting information about the history of the statue and others like it. Neat mural on building by it.

Having seen this on many TV programs about Route 66, I was delighted to touch base as I drove the road. Surrounded by some nicely preserved period museums and cafes it was a good short stop along the way.

We came across the Paul Bunyon statue really by accident. We were headed to the Palms Grille and happened to see it across of the restaurant. It's big. It screams 1960s roadside attraction - which is cool unto itself. But is it worth altering your...More

Fun place to stop for a driving break. Just minutes from the Interstate. Terrific photo op in a quaint town with terrific food right across the street.

This is a fun, quirky thing to see in Atlanta. We brought our wiener dog and took his photo dressed in a hotdog costume because, why not?!

Very tall Paul Bunyon with huge hot dog. Take a photo and eat at Palms Grill across the street. Small town with many murals on the old buildings.
