“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?” That’s the line Kel Mitchell made famous on the 1990s kids sketch show All That and its 1997 cinematic spin-off, Good Burger. Now, that famous line and fictional restaurant has spawned a pop-up in West Hollywood to coincide with Nickelodeon’s All That reboot.
Alvin Cailan, the chef behind the web series The Burger Show, has put together a menu for Good Burger that includes the Good Burger (which comes in single, double, and triple); Good Chunks, chicken tenders (with Ed’s sauce); the Good Chicken Sandwich; plus fries, onion rings, salads, and milkshakes. (All items on the menu have a gluten-free option.) He says he’s a big fan of the Good Burger movie, so creating the menu is something he is excited to do.
“I’ve had it on my iTunes for like the last few years,” Cailan says. “It’s one of those movies where, growing up with my brother, I watched with it like twice a day sometimes. It’s something sentimental to me. That’s why I wanted to be a part of this project, because at this point in my career, I’ve definitely done a lot of burgers, but this is something that I really wanted to do.”
Even though in the movie and TV show Good Burger is a fast-food joint, Cailan says the real-world iteration will have fresh ingredients, and everything will be cooked to order, making it as “chef-driven as possible in a fast-food setting.”
Only the immediate team at Good Burger has taste tested the food, but considering some of the Saved by the Bell stars that showed up at Saved by the Max, there’s a chance that Mitchell and Kenan Thompsonwill stop by.
“It’s always a level of anxiety when it comes to feeding celebs,” Cailan says, “but I have full confidence they will like it. Burger fans will love it.”
Good Burger is located at 7100 Santa Monica Blvd. Tickets are $30. But if you can’t make it in, you can order from the menu on Postmates during the pop-up’s run; for the week of July 29, all Good Burger orders on Postmates will receive free delivery.
