Restaurants Mentioned In Song Lyrics

Sort by: Showing 10 items
Rating: List Type:
#1 McDonald's
"Big Mac" – The Village People (1981)
Nothing's better than a Big Mac

"Power And The Passion" - Midnight Oil (1982)
Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
And no one goes outback, that's that
(Big Mac attack in the Outback! McDonald's musical influence extends into Australia.)

"You Be Illin'" - Run-DMC (1986)
He gave a quarter and his order, small fries, Big Mac!
(Thanks to a marketing legend named Tom Burrell, McDonald's ran many successful ad campaigns targeted to the black community, making it the fast food destination of choice for hip-hop pioneers like Run-DMC.)
#2: Kentucky Fried Chicken/KFC
"You Be Illin'" - Run DMC (1986)
One day when I was chillin' in Kentucky Fried Chicken
Just mindin' my business, eatin' food and finger lickin'

"Night Of The Living Rednecks" - Dead Kennedys (1987)
I waited, walked down about a block to
where the Kentucky Fried Chicken is, on Burnside

"Same In The End" - Sublime (1996)
Kentucky Fried Chicken is all I see
It's a hellified way to start your day
#3 Burger King
"Oh Oh I Love Her So" – The Ramones (1977)
I met her at the Burger King
We fell in love by the soda machine

"The Bristol Hotel" - LL Cool J (1987)
It ain't no thing
And her meat tastes better than Burger King
(Now you know why ladies love Cool James.)

"I Ain't Tha 1" – N.W.A (1988)
And after the date, I'ma do the wild thing
You want lobster? I'm thinking Burger King

"The Humpty Dance" – Digital Underground (1990)
I once got busy in a Burger King Bathroom

"Real Slim Shady" – Eminem (2000)
He could be working at Burger King
Spittin' on your onion rings
#4 Starbucks
"The Inevitable Return Of The Great White Dope" - Bloodhound Gang (2000)
I'm hard to come by like a straight guy working at Starbucks

"Plane" - Jason Mraz (2005)
You're looking so good in your Starbucks cup

"Starstruck" - Lady Gaga (2009)
She so star struck, the gal all stuck
I should have had an overdose too many Starbucks
(This is part of Flo Rida's verse.)

"Country Boy's World" - Jason Aldean (2010)
Never seen a one-light town 'til she moved down here
She said, "I'm so bored out of my mind
Need a Starbucks and a wifi"
#5 Taco Bell
"Gone Hollywood" - Supertramp (1979)
I'm in this dumb motel
Near the Taco Bell
Without a hope in hell
(This is the first track on Breakfast In America, one of the greatest rock albums ever made. The guy in the song goes to Hollywood for fame in fortune, but finds himself in an existential crisis when it doesn't work out.)

"Posse On Broadway" - Sir Mix-A-Lot (1993)
Now the posse's gettin' hungry, and Mix-a-Lot's treatin'
We stopped at Taco Bell, for some Mexican eatin'

"Wynona's Big Brown Beaver" - Primus (1995)
Along came Lou with the old baboon
And said "Recognize that smell?"
Smells like seven layers,
That beaver eats Taco Bell!
#6 Dairy Queen
"Dairy Queen" - Indigo Girls (2004)
I heard that you were drunk and mean
Down at the Dairy Queen

"Serendipity" - Barenaked Ladies (2007)
You worked down at the Dairy Queen
We hit it off from the start
Now there's a blizzard in between
Frost inside a heart

"Chasin' Girls" - Rodney Atkins (2009)
Well time passed, I turned 16
Crusin' from the Sonic to the Dairy Queen
#7 Red Lobster
"Big Ole Butt" – LL Cool J (1989)
I went to Red Lobster for shrimp and steak
Around the time when the waitresses are on their lunch break

"Right Now" – Nappy Roots (2003)
Now if the world was my oyster
Baby girl every day could be Red Lobster

"Baby" – Pharrell Williams (2006)
Why ain't we somewhere hot for the weekend?
Seafood eatin', I heard you like Red Lobster
#8 Pizza Hut
"(Nothing But) Flowers" – Talking Heads (1988)
This was a Pizza Hut
Now it's all covered with daisies

"Palmdale" – Afroman (2000)
Bought a cell phone, like a nut
Now I deliver like Pizza Hut

"Give Me Back My Hometown" – Eric Church (2014)
My friends try to cheer me up
Get together at the Pizza Hut
I didn't have the heart to tell them that was our place
#9 Chick-fil-A
"Army" – Ben Folds Five (1999)
Grew a mustache and a mullet
Got a job at Chick-fil-A

"14 Block" – Jeezy (2014)
This work s--t is in my resumé
Brand new chickens all day like I'm Chick-fil-A.
Spot open up, weed given on the weekend
Even on Sunday unlike Chick-fil-A

"Tell Me What You Want for Christmas" – Chris August (2014)
I know what I want
I want some Chick-fil-A

"Buy Back The Block" – Rick Ross (2016)
I sold 10 bricks a day
But now I need 10 Chick-fil-A's
#10 Olive Garden
"The Black Bond" – Nas (2012)
Fine dining, Olive Garden
Nas is in the real deal
Food spots on the constant

"Acapella" - Karmin (2014)
Out on our first date, he took me gourmet
We hit that Olive Garden, my Little Italy

"Humbug" – Owl City (2016)
I could get her a gift card to Olive Garden
But what if Red Lobster is way more her thing?

"Weed & Coffee" – Mac Lethal (2016)
I be getting Whole Foods b--ches
You be getting Olive Garden b--tches with the bronzer

A good reason to mention a restaurant in your song: free food. After Phil Vassar included the line "Domino's pizza in the candlelight" in his #1 Country hit "Just Another Day in Paradise," he earned VIP status there. "A lot of Domino's franchises just send me pizza, which I love," he said "I'm like, 'Thanks for the pizza,' and they're like, 'Thanks for the song.'"
