1 – Jack Rabbit Slim’s – Pulp Fiction

2 countdowns on Food Republic thus far. 2 appearances by Quentin Tarantino (perhaps he deserves his own list.) The most visually arresting thematic restaurant in cinema history, complete with a wait staff in iconic costumes and dinner entertainment of dance moves that would be spoofed time and time again. Vincent Vega describes it perfectly as a “wax museum with a pulse.” They cook their meat in terms like “bloody as hell!” They seat you at tables designed as convertibles! And they describe $5 shakes in the most questionable terms possible — Martin and Lewis means vanilla, Amos and Andy means chocolate. Greasy food, waiters with personality, and the most dynamic Twist contest I’ve ever seen. If only such a wax museum existed.
