Happy Meal McDonald's, Dallas

Called "the happiest McDonald's in the world," by The Travel Channel, this Dallas fast-food franchise looks the part. Located at Montfort Drive and LBJ Freeway, the building provides a preview of what's inside with its enormous Happy Meal box exterior and gigantic french fries, Big Mac and Coca-Cola statues. But don't think the design is too low-brow: The interior boasts Austrian crystal chandeliers, Ralph Lauren wallpaper and granite floors.
