Inspired by the love for the Grand Theft Auto franchise, these two living food art installations aim to indulge all five senses of each visitor. Smokin J’s has created exclusive menus for each video game restaurant popup. As thirst quenchers, eCola and Orang-O-Tang will be offered at both restaurants.

In addition to food and themed drinks, Burger Shot will also be offering limited quantities of Burger Shot Stallion toy cars and uniforms. Cluckin’ Bell will be offering limited quantities of their uniform, as well as exclusive yoga mats in exchange for conquering their Beat the Cock push-up contest.
