Welcome to Good Burger


Any child of the 90s remembers All That, the sketch comedy show that split the sides of kids for years. The show eventually died off (kids these days wouldn't know entertainment if it bit them in their Playstations) but a popular sketch gave the world a delightfully campy 1997 movie, Good Burger. On the show, Kel Mitchell played Ed, an empty-headed cashier at the burger joint, annoying strings of customers. The movie amped Kel's idiocy way up and pitted Good Burger against the evil Mondo Burger, serving up a kid-friendly plot story and commentary on the evils of the fast food industry at once. Man, thinking about going to the Good Burger premiere with my cousins makes me feel so old.


Imagine my surprise, then, when childhood memories were stirred up as I walked past goodburger on 8th Avenue between 57th and 58th. Gee willikers, dreams really do come true!



Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo

Research didn't turn up anything about goodburger, which is a chain, having to do with the movie, but their logo includes the words "home of the goodburger", as in Ed's, "welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?" I didn't get a chance to stop in, but I'll report back as soon as I do. Until then, watch all of Good Burger on YouTube!
