The building's architectural features reveal that Shanghai Boy was, first and foremost, a location for GRIFF's BURGER BAR, a chain who used the distinctive A-frame buildings. (So did Golden Point, another chain, but this street sign, with the trapezoidal shape, is one way to know a Griff's from a Golden Point) This was definitely a Griff's.

I had documented only two Griff's locations, one on 7th Street, in KC KS, (recently torn down) and one in Leavenworth KS. TO my great embarrassment, I now see the "point" still on the pics of the Leavenworth location, so I will have to change my captions and descriptions, as I was wrong in calling that a Griff's.
