A Real McDowell’s is Your Halloween Treat
Pop culture is embracing the ’80s for Halloween this year – both the Today and Good Morning America personalities dressed as iconic ’80s celebrities, movies, and TV shows. But one Hollywood restaurant is stepping up their Halloween game, and it will make your Soul Glo! Fat Sal’s Sandwich Shop is now emblazoned with the Golden Arc’s and has transformed into Coming to America’s McDowell’s restaurant, complete with the noted Scottish tartan uniform and a menu that takes a foodie spin so a certain red-haired clown can’t make any copyright claims.
Items include the Sexual Chocolate shake (chocolate shake, chocolate syrup, chocolate shavings, cherry, whipped cream, and a fat slice of chocolate cake), The Big Mick (hamburger patties, lettuce, pickles, and onions and fries on hero bread), and Zamunda Fries (blackened chicken, cheddar, mozzarella, onions, peppers and habanero aioli). Music from the soundtrack plays on the speakers and a plaque celebrating Akeem, The McDowell’s Employee of the Month, is hanging on the wall. Next door, you’ve got the pop-up Mi-T-Sharp barber shop, of course!
McDowell’s at 1300 Highland (that’s Highland and Fountain) and closes for good at 3 a.m.- if you go, please tweet or Instagram us photos @80sMovieGuide!
