There Is A Real Life Krusty Krab In Houston And I Need To Visit


ViacomCBS attorneys are irritated with The Rusty Krab, a new eatery with a $24 entry fee in downtown Houston. T

One of television’s best-kept secrets is the Krabby Patty formula.

It’s the burger of choice for the residents of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob SquarePants’ imaginary hometown. The cartoon character works as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, where he serves them every day and foils Plankton’s attempts to steal the formula.

A Houston pop-up has figured out how to make its own Krabby Patty. It’s also not quite as enigmatic. A beef patty, American cheese, and a deliciously soft bread are all included. (Additional charges apply for bacon and a fried egg.)

You can purchase it, as well as meet SpongeBob, at the Rusty Krab Experience, an interactive pop-up and restaurant in downtown Houston, until Aug. 1. It first opened in April and has subsequently been extended several times due to its success. Of course, children are welcome, but after 9 p.m., it’s a 21-and-up party.

The concept came from Sam Chand’s 9-year-old daughter, who is a major SpongeBob fan. In October, the same room, next to Capitol Lofts, featured a Harry Potter pop-up, and earlier this year, one inspired by “The Office.”

“People loved it, so we just kept going,” adds Chand, who used to own a nightclub. “It was something I was willing to try with and see how it worked.”

According to a disclaimer, The Rusty Krab is “not related, associated, authorised, endorsed by, or in any way formally connected with Nickelodeon, or the SpongeBob brand directly.” Instead, it’s being referred to as a “artistic adaption reconstruction of a fantastic series that contributed value to our upbringing.”

That explains the tiny name discrepancy. Rusty Krab, not Krusty Krab.

Unfortunately this restaurant has now permanently closed!
