Looks like Appleton had a Mars Restaurant also. We had one in De Pere, where I'm from....

That is definitely Appleton - that's the frontage road for College Avenue west of the Viaduct. I think it is a Burger King today. The American Legion where Americanos practiced is just a block or two west of here and on the other side of College.
