Was the Big Mick really as tasty as the Big Mac? “Coming To America” fans now have a chance to find out.

Fat Sal’s in Hollywood is dressing up as McDowell’s, the definitely-not-McDonalds restaurant from the 1988 cult classic “Coming to America” for Halloween.

The restaurant at 1300 N. Highland Avenue will transform part of its interior and exterior into McDowell’s, featuring items like “The Big Mick” – no word if they will still have two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but on buns with no seeds.

There’s also no word on whether Louie Anderson will be taking orders at the counter, or if Samuel L. Jackson will stage an armed robbery, only to be foiled by Eddie Murphy and a broomstick.

Fat Sal’s will also offer movie-inspired items like “The Sexual Chocolate Shake” and “The Zamunda Fries.”

The Halloween-ish pop-up is only happening on a limited basis, though, landing Monday, October 30 and Tuesday, October 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m at Fat Sal’s in Hollywood. Not that this is the first time such a pop-up has ever taken place; back in 2015 Chicago’s Weiner’s Circle hosted a similar event.
