When I was a kid there was a restaurant called "The Big Yellow House" (or something like that, I think it was a chain) that charged kids by weight. You had to step on a one of those old giant scales like at the carnival where they guess your weight. Instead of actual weight, the pointer would indicate the price you were charged for your meal.

I don't remember anything about the food, just the scale. I guess I'm still somewhat traumatized by the shame of always "topping out" on the kids' menu price!
