Big Kahuna Burger

A Big Kahuna Burger as seen in Pulp Fiction

Big Kahuna Burger is a fictional chain of Hawaiian-themed fast food restaurants that appears in the movies of Quentin Tarantino, including Death Proof, Four Rooms, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs.[1] The packaging was created by Tarantino's old friend Jerry Martinez.[2] Samuel L. Jackson's character in Pulp Fiction refers to a Big Kahuna Burger with the line, "This is a tasty burger!" to Brett after eating his burger.

Since the name's use in films, some restaurants have referenced it in either their name or that of a product.[3][4][5][6][7]

Big Kahuna Burgers have also appeared in two films directed by Tarantino's friend and regular collaborator Robert Rodriguez - From Dusk Till Dawn and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D, the former of which was written by Tarantino, as well as appearing in From Dusk till Dawn: The Series (also created by Rodriguez).

A character in the Robert Crais book, Demolition Angel, eats a Big Kahuna Burger just after arriving in Los Angeles.[8]
