A Jay And Silent Bob-Themed Restaurant Is Opening: Are You Ready To Eat At Mooby's?
Be like Jay and Silent Bob and eat at Mooby's, the restaurant Kevin Smith created for his movies.
It was 1999 when movie audiences were first introduced to the fast food chain Mooby's in Dogma, the Kevin Smith comedy starring Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Linda Fiorentino, and Salma Hayek. Now, over two decades later and following many more appearances in Jay and Silent Bob movies, you'll actually be able to eat at Mooby's.
Smith announced the news on Instagram, revealing he's partnered with the company that launched a Saved By the Bell pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles to bring the fictional fast food restaurant to life. "Ever since I first introduced the fictional fast food joint in my films, folks have said 'You suck at movies, so open a Mooby's!'" Smith wrote on Instagram. "Now the folks who did [Saved By the Max] is building the [Mooby's Pop-up]--an IRL eatery in Los Angeles that opens later this year, pandemic depending!"

Ever since I first introduced the fictional fast food joint in my films, folks have said “You suck at movies, so open a Mooby's!” Now the folks who did @savedbythemax is building the @moobyspopup - an IRL eatery in Los Angeles that opens later this year, pandemic depending! But as a preview of what’s to come, a Mooby Meal will be available for delivery in L.A. via @postmates starting THIS SUNDAY and running til 4/25! Our takeout Mooby Meals include "Mooby's Messy Lasagna Sandwich" with a side of "Hater Totz" and "Chocolate Covered Pretzels" for dessert! And for your “toy surprise”, we include an autographed Reboot card from me, that will also entitle the bearer to front row slots when the pop-up is finally open to the public! And we’re donating the proceeds to @nouswithoutyou (providing meals to families in need effected by Covid 19). If you’ve ever seen #dogma, or #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, or #clerks2, or #jayandsilentbobreboot, you’ve seen fake people eat at a fake fast food joint! Now, BE a fake person eating actual food from a real restaurant! Many thanks to @heyitsderekberry and the #savedbythemax folks for making a dopey dream come true!

While a date has not been announced for the launch of the restaurant, those who live in Los Angeles will get the opportunity to sample the Mooby's menu from April 19-25. A meal will be available from themed eatery to be delivered by Postmates. As revealed by Smith, it will include a "messy lasagna sandwich," "hater totz," and chocolate covered pretzels. Those who know the director's movies well will recognize the pretzels from Mallrats and the tots from the recent Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. The meal will also come with an item autographed by Smith.
Proceeds from the delivered meals will be donated to No Us Without You, which the director says is donating meals to families impacted by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
