Good Burger Pop-Up Finally Opens For Your Nostalgic Tastebuds In West Hollywood
That Good Burger pop-up is here at last, opening Wednesday in West Hollywood and staying in town through the end of the year. At last, we can be welcomed to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger -- they may take our order.
A quick refresher: Good Burger started as a sketch on the '90s kids' comedy show All That. It was so popular that it spawned a movie co-starring future perma-SNL star Kenan Thompson and helped inspire sketch spinoff Kenan & Kel, and now we're living in the Good Burger-aissance.
Here's everything you need to know about that classic comedy sketch's resurrection in pop-up restaurant form.
WHAT IT'S LIKE INSIDE
It's housed in the former home of Saved By The Max, the late '80s/early '90s nostalgic pop-up inspired by Saved By The Bell, god rest its soul.
We know the real reason you all go to pop-ups: photo ops. If you're doing it for the 'Gram, you can get shots in front of the Good Burger step-and-repeat background, at the Good Burger counter, with a giiiiiant Good Burger, on an orange soda wave, and more. There's also an All That-themed game room, with foosball and some classic arcade games to help feed your nostalgia.
"The goal of the design is to create a connection between the nostalgic visual legacy of Good Burger's iconic past forms, and the updated aesthetic on the new season of Nickelodeon's All That," designer Floyd A. Davis IV said in a press release. He described it as "a room full of immersive photo moments that play with perspective and scale, creating a stage for the multi-sensory experience."
THE GOOD BURGER CHEF ISN'T ED/KEL, THANKFULLY
The food comes courtesy of native L.A. chef Alvin Cailan, who also founded the less-all-ages-friendly Eggslut. The Good Burger's core menu includes Good Burgers, Good Chunks (less gross than it sounds -- those are chicken tenders), and a Good Wich (aka a chicken sandwich).
For sides, you've got Good Fries, Good (onion) Rings, Good Pickles, and Good Salad, while for dessert, there's Good Shakes, Good Pies, and Good Cookies. They've got gluten free options, and are also getting into the faux burger craze by stocking Beyond Meat.
There's even an adult version of orange soda made with Good Booze.
And we don't know why you wouldn't want to go experience Good Burger in person -- that's kind of the point, no? But the food is also available via Postmates throughout the life of the pop-up. And during the week of July 29, they're offering free delivery.
You can get tickets for the experience right here. Reservations cost $30 per person with a minimum group size of two, and that includes 90 minutes inside the establishment along with an entree, side, and a commemorative item.
