Long Description:

The chef depicted in an animated neon light seems to have been a very early McDonald's logo. I have not been able to determine the significance of the slash through the golden arches.

Apparently the McDiner's were first tested in 2002 in Kokomo, Indiana. They featured an expanded menu similar to a family restaurant. It is not clear how many of these actually opened or how they fared, but most seem to have reverted to the standard McDonald's menu.
