Although I haven’t found many laughs in “The Simpsons” lately, the writers can always amuse me by tossing off some fake restaurant names as the family drives through Springfield. Over at The Simpsons Archives they have compiled (among other things) a list of all of the restaurants named in the show. Of course there have been some actual restaurants named, but the fake names are always better. Most Simpsons fans could name Krusty Burger, and maybe the Rusty Barnacle, but there are so many more. Here are five of my favorites:
1. Up, Up and Buffet!
2. Prof. VJ Cornicopia’s Fantastic Foodmagorium & Great American Steakery
3. Griddler on the Roof
4. The Texas Cheesecake Depository
5. General Chang’s Taco Italiano
Do any of these sound like restaurants that you’d actually want to eat at?
