Life imitates art. We love when that happens. A fast food restaurant that appears in several Kevin Smith films is popping up in real life across the country, including South Florida. Disturbs. Soufflé. Deco got an exclusive taste of Mooby’s.
Mooby’s is in the movies, and now he’s appearing in the flesh at Tin Roof in Delray Beach.
Deco mooooooooved up to Delray to check out this creation from prolific director Kevin Smith, who is also half of the iconic duo Jay and Silent Bob.
Derek Berry, Mooby’s: “Kevin was involved every step of the way. He named every item on the menu, figured out the color schemes and everything.
Derek Berry is Kev’s partner in “Dine”.
While this restaurant is total fan service for fans of the Kevin Smith movies, Derek says not to judge a VHS by its box cover.
Derek Berry: “We know people are going to come here and take pictures and things, but the food is just as important. We like to say it’s fast food run by a chef. Cow Tipper is the go-to item. When people say, “What do I get? What should I have at Mooby’s? ‘ I would say it’s the Cow Tipper.
This thing has two cheeseburger patties with Mooby’s house sauce.
They also have a secret menu item.
Derek Berry: “In each city, we work locally with our chef to prepare a secret menu item. At Delray, it’s a Cow Tipper on a milkshake.
The secret is out, I guess.
Chandler Patty, dinner: “My God, it’s banging. Scrumshidillyumptious.
What a great description!
Derek Berry: “Our teams are also fun. We have tater tots – Hater Tots – which come from “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot”, and we have Onion Rings to Rule Them All, which come from “Clerks iII”.
And get this: Mooby’s menu is 50% vegan, for good reason.
Derek Berry: “No one expected Mooby’s to think about dietary restrictions. Kevin suffered a heart attack a few years ago, nearly died from it, changed his entire diet, and went vegan.
One thing you will find here that you won’t see in the movies: alcohol. Have your choice of beer or cool cocktails.
Johnny Holt, dinner: “I drank the Hunch Punch. It’s very sweet, very alcoholic. I love her so much.”
Hey, if “Clerks II” and “III” star Rosario Dawson loves Mooby’s, odds are you’ll like it, too.
Derek Berry: “We’re trying to think, for example, that this is a touring version of Disney for fans of Kevin Smith. You step into Kevin Smith’s world and you eat it too.
Mooby’s is open until September 21. Kevin plans to spend the day of the closing.
