McDonald's fictional rival is coming to life. Anyone who has seen the movie Coming to America was able to get that McDowell's restaurant reference immediately. If you haven't seen the iconic film starring Eddie Murphy, here's a quick lesson.
Murphy's character was the prince of a fictional African country and went to Queens, New York to find a bride. He didn't want a woman to only desire him for his money, so he took a job at McDowell's mopping the floors and taking out the trash.
So for the next couple days, Fat Sal's Deli in Los Angeles will transform into the fast food establishment, bringing you all of you favorite things from the film.
Instead of the Big Mac, for example, you can order a Big Mick. Singer Randy Watson won't be there, but they are selling a Sexual Chocolate shake. Fat Sal's even created Zamunda fries.
If you can't make it to L.A. for a taste of Zamunda, no worries. Wiener's Circle in Chicago is also transforming into McDowell's for the Halloween weekend.
