El Arroyo's Big Book of Signs: Volume One contains 158 pictures of El Arroyo marquee signs over the years.
El Arroyo posts a different sign every day. The sign's witticisms are thought up and discussed via email by a group of about 15 people connected to the restaurant including managers and owners. Ideas can come from anywhere, however. The restaurant even has a joke submission page on their website, and told Austin 360 that the signs are "generally picked based on how hard we were laughing reading."

Better than how dogs do it
Stop the planet, I want to get off
Those Oompa Loompa songs seemed awfully rehearsed

I see what you did there
