2. Clearly not every spiral-bound menu is meant to be:

3. This "secret" menu on the back of the regular menu is reflected in the mirror behind the counter:

4. This mirrored menu, however, is impossible to read:

5. The built-in flashlight in this menu makes it easier to read in dimly lit restaurants:

7. This cocktail menu plots drinks on a graph based on how strong and experimental they are, and it tells you what kind of glass they come in:

8. Speaking of Texcock — I mean cocktails — there's this menu:

9. This fast-food restaurant puts the kids' menu where kids can actually see it:

10. Meanwhile, this menu should be kept out of children's sight:

11. This pizzeria menu has a ruler on the side so you can see how big different-sized pizzas actually are:

12. This menu, on the other hand, is the opposite of helpful:

13. This menu is a Venn diagram of every breakfast sandwich combination the restaurant offers:

14. This menu, however, looks like a failing health department inspection score:

15. This beer menu illustrates the flavor, color/maltiness, bitterness, and hoppiness of various beers:

16. This poorly designed menu looks upside down:

17. The menu at this Japanese restaurant is basically Sushi 101:

18. This menu cover took me five whole minutes to read:

19. This illustrated menu prevents espresso novices from annoying the hell out of their barista:

20. And finally, this children's menu proves not everything should be illustrated:
