** Played straight in "Food for Thought", but rather oddly, in that the greasy, sugary fast food isn't in a restaurant, but a school cafeteria. Specifically, a company called Trans-Infinity Farms becomes the local high school's new food supplier, and offers the teens disgustingly huge portions of unhealthy food (including a yard-long hot dog, a stack of pancakes drowning in chocolate syrup, and deep-fried lettuce as a "healthy" option). In an aversion of the usual treatment of this trope, nearly every student at the school (with the exception of Chelsea) initially loves the new menu--that is, until Raven has a vision of a BigFatFuture where everyone in the school develops a gigantic ass from eating nothing but junk.

* Averted on ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' with The Chill Grill, Victor Baxter's restaurant. It's a popular teen hangout, and Raven and Chelsea even get jobs there, but the food is delicious and the uniforms are stylish (though that has something to do with Raven, an aspiring fashion designer, having a hand in making them). ** Played straight in "Food for Thought", but rather oddly, in that the greasy, sugary fast food isn't in a restaurant, but a school cafeteria.

** The episode "Grande Size Me" brings back Bueno Nacho. Ron insists that their junk food is "healthy" and [[Film/SuperSizeMe decides to eat only their meals for a month]]. He ends up becoming not only fat and unhealthy, but turning into a horrible monster due to a villain's latest plot requiring someone with the body chemistry of [[ContrivedCoincidence someone who's eaten nothing but Bueno Nacho food for an extended period of time]]. Humorously, this was the show creators' way of [[TakeThat getting back]] at Disney, who forced them to do a [[AWeightyAesop "healthy eating"]] episode.

* In ''NoMoreHeroes'', there's a fast food joint just outside of Travis' hotel named "Burger Suplex", which also keeps the flow of naming many landmarks after pro wrestling moves.

* This type of restaurant is parodied in ''Film/Shrek2'', where the Prince and Fairy Godmother go through the fly-though of the Friar's Fat Boys, a place with a menu that includes Renaissance Wraps, sourdough soft tacos, and the Medieval Meal (comes with regular or curly fries and a prize - a battle axe). Not a completely straight example of the Trope, however, as more of the humor focuses on the customers, rather than the employee, although she ''is'' dressed like a typical tavern serving maid.

Similar workers can be found at SuckECheeses. For the (not-really) "alternative", see SoulSuckingRetailJob. The next step up the "ladder" is working at TGIOChiliBees.

* The TropeNamer is from ''StaticShock'', and is a thin parody of "Burger King". The uniform includes a motley hat with bells. Virgil Hawkins is forced to work there by his father, who is "[[SecretSecretKeeper unaware]]" of the significant commitment Virgil has to his "[[SuperHero charity work]]".

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', Nathan has a nightmare that his bandmates are all killed during a show, and he ends up working at a burger joint (Dimmu Burger, named after the ''Music/DimmuBorgir'') due to his never finishing high school - and he's bad at that job.

* Music/DemiLovato's character in the ''Film/PrincessProtectionProgram'' is given a job at a Frozen Yoghurt place by the Libby specifically to humiliate her and is sabotaged by said Libby, but she quite rightly points out that the only person who can feel humiliation is yourself, proceeds to give the Libby a speech and walk out with her head high.
