Move over, In ‘N Out. Watch your back, McDonald’s. Starting this August in Des Moines, Iowa’s East Village, horror fans will be able to order a side of zombies with their burgers at a new restaurant from George Formaro: “Zombie Burger + Drink Lab.”
Per the Des Moines Register the restaurant, scheduled to open in the E300 Building at 300 E. Grand Ave., combines Formaro’s love of burgers and milkshakes with horror films.
“We do so much serious stuff that I wanted to do something fun,” Formaro said. While Formaro and his partners’ other restaurants feature thick wood- and gas-grill-cooked burgers, Zombie Burger will feature what Formaro calls the “quintessential American flat burger.” The Drink Lab will feature gourmet milkshakes with creative combinations and alcohol options.
“We went back and forth on the zombie/horror aspect, but Zombie Burger just sounded like a cool place,” Formaro said. “We’ll deliver on the food side, but not as much on the visuals of zombies. More the feel of a zombie movie. Clearly you’re not going to see things that would suppress your appetite. That doesn’t work.”
Oh c’mon, George. Serve us up some braaaains, why dontcha?
