Kilroy Was Here
The history of Kilroy dates back to WWII. Kilroy was a symbol used by United States soldiers as sort of a "Super GI," he had always "already been" wherever GIs went. It was originally an inspection mark that had a drawing and read, "Kilroy Was Here." As soldiers began to see his mark it struck a chord with them and soon began to spread all over Europe and the South Pacific. "Fuzzums," as we affectionately call him, was Brad's drawing and has become the Roadhouse signature, with a martini glass and overlooking the rising river.
