Hollywood Says Goodbye to the Iconic Cowboy Hat Sign Arby’s

by Nick

The iconic Arby’s location in Hollywood, known for its massive neon cowboy hat sign on Sunset Boulevard between Tamarind and Bronson, has permanently closed. The company removed the location from its website, and a Reddit user noted a marquee sign saying: “Farewell Hollywood TY for 55 great years.”

Arby’s, established in 1964, is part of the Atlanta-based Inspire Brands group. The chain, known for its slow-roasted roast beef sandwich, aimed to stand out in the burger-dominated fast food scene. Arby’s operates over 3,500 restaurants in nine countries. This closure follows other major fast food brand exits in Southern California, including Rubio’s shutting down 48 locations in California earlier this month. Eater reached out to Arby’s for comments but has not received a response.
