“Cute”

Shell-shaped Gas Station
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

Cute little station, located around the 1100 block, unlike the directions on Tripadvisor. This is the only place like this in the world.

I had an idea to take this photo, went around sunset. It isn't the easiest place to find as the roads are small and old. There seem to be a lot of people walking around. It is not in the nicest part of the city.

This is one of the most unusual and cool things I have seen next to the Sinclair Dinosaur. Such a unique piece of history to see.

The Shell was closed and we were not able to go in. It actually looks bigger than the other photos and is a pretty neat sight.

It costs nothing. It is not even open! But I loved it! Charming throwback to a different time. If you are in the area drop by.

Please note the Tripadvisor map for this site is incorrect - the Shell gas station is another 0.75 miles east on the corner of Peachtree Street, not Lexington. You'd probably find it eventually if you were lucky and kept going in the right direction, but still...
