El Arroyo jokes that since its name means “The Ditch,” it’d better have food that’s good. The restaurant acknowledges that they love goofing around and having a good time, but they take Tex Mex food seriously.

The restaurant’s online presence has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. El Arroyo currently has 236k followers on Instagram and it doesn’t look like the flow of new fans will be stopping anytime soon. The staff working there know just how popular their signs are, so they’ve even published three books about them.

This is funny, but why do women wear bras? And why do people shame those who don’t wear them?

I think that was part of the point they were making. Grammatically, It should have been “you’re an idiot”, (contraction of “you are”), not “your an idiot” (possessive). 😁

Here's a trick to help you remember: If "they are" wouldn't make sense, neither would "they're". "Theirs" is spelled "the irs"- it belongs to the IRS now! "There" you can make the r into an arrow for "over there".

With the number of different signs that El Arroyo puts up, some of them are bound to make someone angry. That’s exactly what happened in 2005 when the restaurant put up a sign revealing a mega plot twist at the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (you know the one I’m talking about). There was some backlash, but eventually, people got over it.

According to Austin Monthly, the witty and sharp signs may have been the reason why somebody tried to burn down the restaurant way back in 1998. Wow, some people really can’t handle someone trying to be funny, can they?

Not believing in Santa is also okay though. I was never lied to about Santa's existence and preferred it that way, as I was a sensitive child and would have gotten my heart broken when I would have found out he wasn't real.

Yep, even though the "everything happens for a reason"-phrase is one of the crappiest there is, always told by uncaring people to people who suffer. No guys, there is no reason, but things happen regardless. Peace to mankind and clean hands!
