Which Fictional Burger Restaurant Would You Love to Try?
Movies and TV shows have introduced us to a variety of great places—many of which we’d love to be able to try. Unfortunately, some of these places are just too good to be true—existing only on the screen and in our hearts. We’re paying homage to some of our favorites that have excited, intrigued, and inspired us over the years.
1. Good Burger – Good Burger (1997)
Originally a sketch on the ‘90s show All That, the Good Burger restaurant is best known for its introductory line: “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the good burger. Can I take your order?” Though you’d be getting served by a clueless teenager who probably wouldn’t get your order right, we can’t help but want to stop in for a bite to eat and a good laugh.
2. Fatso Burger – That ‘70s Show (1998‒2006)
With the exception of the creepy clown taking your order in the drive-thru line—though the gang steals it—Fatso Burger seems like the place to be. Even if it were just to hang out with Hyde, Fez, Donna, and the rest of the gang, we’d brave the clown for a burger and fries.
3. Big Kahuna Burger – Pulp Fiction (1994)
While Big Kahuna Burger appears in a number of Quentin Tarantino films, its feature in the postmodern Pulp Fiction has to be the most memorable. We love adding creative elements to our burgers, which is why we favor the pineapple on these Hawaiian-themed burgers.
4. MacLaren’s Pub – How I Met Your Mother (2005‒2014)
For starters, we love the idea of having a regular hangout spot. Whether it’s 2:00 in the afternoon or midnight, Ted and friends can always count on MacLaren’s for a drink or a bite to eat. They even dedicated an entire episode to finding the best burger in town, starting with a burger they all deemed great at their go-to spot.
5. Krusty Krab – Spongebob Squarepants (1999‒ )
As the best restaurant under the sea, the Krusty Krab specializes in one thing: Krabby Patty burgers. You can’t really beat the freshness of seafood on the ocean floor, so we’d love to give one of these a try! After all, who said a burger has to be made of beef? We’re always down for a tasty salmon or veggie burger.
6. King Burger – MADtv (Appeared in 2008)
“Welcome to King Burger, where we could do it your way—but don’t get crazy!” One of the sketch comedy show’s most memorable characters, Bon Qui Qui was the incessantly rude register operator you just can’t help but love. Even though her customer service skills are nonexistent, we’d love to hear her set a beat and rap our order to the cooks.
7. Arnold’s – Happy Days (1974‒1984)
As we’ve said before, we love finding a regular spot to hang out and relax with our friends. Arnold’s is most definitely one of those places. With spacious booths and sports memorabilia galore—and of course, “The Fonz”, Arnold’s would have been a great place to grab a burger and a shake.
