Even though it’s 2016, it’s felt a bit like we never left the ‘90s, and honestly, that’s fine by me. Not only has fashion from the decade become majorly popular again, but now you can even visit a 1990s-themed restaurant. Because why wouldn’t you want to dine and dress in style, you know?
Thanks to Saved By The Max restaurant, you can feel as though you stepped straight into an episode of “Saved By The Bell,” neon and all.
The restaurant opened earlier this year in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood and includes everything from a hallway/locker space from the show to a fantastic recreation of the interior of the Max. Because this restaurant is only a “pop-up,” you can’t expect to be able to visit it forever. So, I recommend booking a reservation online, ASAP.
Whether you live in the area or are considering a trip there, there’s no way you’ll want to miss out on this blast from the past. Book a table, plan a roadtrip and get to Chicago. There are even arcade games and a jukebox to keep you entertained while you revel in the ’90s awesomeness and wait for your diner food to arrive.
The only thing that would make this dining experience even better would be a visit from our favorite “Saved By The Bell” characters. Who would you choose to sit with? Kelly and Zack? Slater and Jessie? Screech and Lisa?
The menu includes diner classics like burgers and fries, grilled cheese and omelettes, plus some more unexpected additions like poutine and eggs benedict, all with clever SBTB-themed names like the Kelly Kapowski and Mr. Belding’s Fries.
When you go to book a reservation online, you’ll find that you can choose from three different types of dining experiences. Dinner at The Max for 2-8 guests will run you $35 per person. If your crew is a little smaller, you can also dine at The Max’s bar for the same price per person.
But, if you want to go all out, you can sign up to for the Homecoming Dinner package, complete with Mr. Dewey as a chaperone. They’re accepting reservations now through Dec. 29.
Get ready to relive the good old days because it’s hard to escape the ‘90s. Not that you’d want to!
