Nine of the Weirdest Restaurant Names in Existence

Categories: Foodie Lists

Most of us have giggled at Chinese restaurants with names that just don't translate well (you listening, King Dong?), but every so often a name comes along that's worthy of a picture, if not a blog post. Behold our collection of the goofiest restaurant names we've ever come across.

9. Dirty Dick's Crab House
This spot in Outer Banks, North Carolina, has a name that makes us want to simultaneously shudder and take a peek inside. A restaurant with the cojones to call itself Dirty Dick's is probably confident about its food, right? Actually, most reviews rate the food mediocre. At the very least, it's worth a trip to get a Dirty Dick's t-shirt.
8. Fingers Wings and Other Things
Those other things referred to in the name? Looks like it's standard fare -- sandwiches, fries, beer, etc. But at least FTOT is, according to its Web site, Conshohocken, Pennsylvania's favorite restaurant!

7. Flavors of Negros
Believe it or not, there's a reasonable explanation for the name of this mall food court eatery in the Philippines. Negros is a province in the country's Visayas region, and, presumably, Flavors of Negros specializes in food from the area. But surely someone must have told the owners that the name might not go over too well?
6. Fu King Chinese Restaurant
A classic example of Chinese translated into goofy English. But seriously, this Lake City, Florida, joint is just another Fu King Chinese Restaurant. Nothing to see here.
