The Los Angeles restaurant Not a Burger Stand located on Riverside Drive in Burbank features some unique offers for its customers. Every Tuesday, one of their artists draws something on their chalkboard, usually requiring diners to order food in the voice of a particular character in exchange for a discount.
The changing chalkboard promotions advertise to passersby that they can receive money off their order if they are able to do an impression of iconic characters like Gandalf, Captain Picard, Beastboy, Groundskeeper Willie, Jabba the Hutt, and Dobby.
Not a Burger Stand’s idea makes ordering food more fun and offers an added incentive for dining at the restaurant. At the start of the year, their board featured The Dude from The Big Lebowski and offered customers 10% off if they turned up wearing a bathrobe. In honor of May the 4th, they offered 10% for those who ordered in the voice of Jabba the Hutt and those who went in dressed in a Star Wars costume could eat free.
The restaurant offers American comfort food influenced by Maryland and mid-Atlantic roots, and has an average user rating of 4.6/5 on Facebook with lots of positive reviews. As well as the chalkboard art and offers, Not a Burger Stand features a “Free Little Library” that allows people to take a book to keep and donate their own. There are also some cute Star Wars, Star Trek and The Hobbit-themed coloring pages for their kids menu that give youngsters the chance to color in drawings of baby Han and Chewie, Spock and Kirk, and Thorin and Bilbo.
