Are you team Big Mick or are you team Big Mac?

“They both contain two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions. But they use a sesame seed bun. My buns have no seeds.”

Do you remember that famous line spoken by Cleo McDowell, otherwise known as John Amos, in the 1988 film “Coming To America.” Well, the Big Mick is here and ready to be put to the test!

Have you tried one yet? What about the Zamunda Fries or the Sexual Chocolate Shake? In honor of Halloween two restaurants went all the way! They’ve transformed into McDowell’s inside and out! Their attention to detail extends all the way down through the menu and to staff uniforms! If you want Zamunda Fries and a Big Mick, you can have Zamunda Fries and a Big Mick! What about a picture with Akeem? They’ve got that covered too! Well, that’s if you’re okay with settling for a photo of his face framed as employee of the month.

The pop up McDowell’s will only last through Halloween so if you haven’t made it yet make sure you go check it out. You can visit McDowell’s, located at 2622 North Clark Street, in Chicago, IL (The Wieners Circle in Lincoln Park) or at 1300 N. Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, CA (Fat Sal’s Deli).
