    i live a block from hot & crusty in the upper east side. it has amazing food. it should be on a best names list in my opinion.

    • Jenny Oz says:

      I know! I love this place. Great bakery, sandwiches, salads, soups an depending on location, pizza! However, it is a ridiculous name. I hate asking non-New Yorkers to eat there, though. It sounds so unappealing. (and half the time people think I’m kidding when I tell them what it’s called)

  2. Robert says:

    I ate at the House of Poon last night. It was delightful.

  3. jennylola says:

    hot & crusty! i crack up every time i pass that place!

  4. doug says:

    I notice the golden stool seemed a little blocked up

  5. Old71 says:

    What is that? Carpet Munch Box. lol

  6. adriana says:

    waco, texas is now home to Fat Ho…seriously.

  7. Myke says:

    I drive by the Hung Far Low every day on my way to work… cracks me up every time I see it.

  8. joannenicole says:

    The “Herpes Pizza” looks like a photoshop. I’m pretty sure it’s acutally “Pizza Pizza” – a popular chain pizza place in Canada.

    • Candace says:

      I was just coming in to say that looks like Pizza Pizza to me :)

    • Candace says:

      Hm, it seems my reply didn’t send, I apologise if you get this twice:

      I’m thinking it’s a photoshop of pizza pizza too! Th
      ough, there have been a couple pizza pizzas I’ve been to that make you think… haha :)

      Though, having said that, I love their garlic sauce!

    • F1fan says:

      It is photoshop. It’s actually Herbies Pizza in Swindon, England.

  9. dave says:

    What would a funny list be without some ahole screaming “photoshop?”

    Shut up and laugh, people.

  10. Eric says:

    They keep trying to close Herpes Pizza but it’s still popping up in random spots all over the neighborhood.

  11. clw96 says:

    There’s also a Dirty Dick’s Crab House in NC (Outer Banks, I think). They’re famous for their t-shirts, which read, “I got my crabs at Dirty Dick’s.”

  12. Deaner says:

    Oh lordy…that “Big Booty” pic… LOL!!!

    • boke1 says:

      I used to pass by that place on 23rd St. every day going to and from work. It’s actually very appropriate for the neighborhood and fits right in with the other local shops.

  13. Caitlin says:

    no.1 Restaurant is 5 minutes from me, actually really good, and i’ve eaten at Nudys. they have an epic pineapple pancake <3

  14. jmadison77 says:

    is it sad that the first thing i saw in the picture for “Jerk King” is that they have poutine? God I want some now. Why can’t I be canadian dammit?

  15. Amanda says:

    I work next to Hung Far Low. There is actually a campaing to restore the original vintage Hung Far Low sign to its prestine, kitschy glory.

  16. MarkyMark says:

    Munch Box!!! Freaking LOVE IT!

  17. KrftDinner says:

    I ate at a place called OK Chinese Food — it’s on Winchester Blvd in San Jose, CA. The food was well, ok. lol I wonder if that’s the same one? (I haven’t been there in years so I forget what it even looks like.)

  18. Amber K says:

    Gotta love Oregon’s Hung Far Low :)

  19. Jojo says:

    Definitely Pizza Pizza but apparently here in Canada we always get the joke that you can get herpes if you eat our pizza. I dunno where that came from but Pizza Pizza and Pizza Nova get those jokes all the time.

  20. Colleen says:

    After I looked at this I went over and looked at Part 1…Crabby Dick’s is funny but they have awesome food. My husband’s band plays in Dewey Beach a few weekends every summer and on our way down we always stop there for lunch. The crab balls are to die for…and yes, just like the sign, the whole menu is made up of dick jokes.

  21. E says:

    The Munch Box is on my block, ha. They once offered me half and half when I asked for skim milk. But their breakfast sandwiches are pretty good!

  22. Who Me says:

    While driving up 156th in Omaha, NE, there is a Texas Road House…. Some of the lights on the sign were burnt out. It read…
    “as Road Ho”
    I don’t want some road ho!

  23. Uh... says:

    “A Dong” means “Asia”/”Eastern Direction” in Vietnamese and Chinese. A lot of the Chinese/Vietnamese restaurants posted have names that actually mean something….and “Yuki” is pronounced “yoo-kee”, not “yucky”…

    “Unintentionally hilarious restaurant names”? Maybe. “WORST?” Not if you knew what the words actually meant.

  24. Ann says:

    Nudy’s is about 3 miles from my house in the Philly burbs — it’s a very good little place for breakfast/lunch!

  25. kross says:

    I’ve been to Dick’s Last on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. It’s named that because they all act like “dicks” when you enter the restaurant! seriously

  26. AttilaTheFun says:

    Jillian, don’t forget Golden Steamer in Chinatown. Makes you hungry, doesn’t it?

    When are you going to host some sort of crazy FNH meet-up in NYC? We could all gather at Chelsea Market to laugh at the FN studios and everyone would be required to bring a Sandra Lee dish.

  27. Kevin says:

    I believe there’s a place in Boca Raton, FL called Phuket Thai.

    • Your NameNo Nic says:

      Phuket got famous a few years back with the tsunami. Watching the news anchors ca-re-ful-ly pronounce the name was comedy gold.

    • Gdy says:

      When I told my co-workers that I went to Phuket, they all laughed. Best vacation ever!

  28. Granny Liz says:

    How bout Sam and Ella’s Diner?

  29. Clay says:

    Near Tacoma, WA there was a place called “Dai Fuku”. It lasted about one month. I wonder why?

    • Your NameNo Nic says:

      I wonder WTH that means, anyway. Dai can mean kitchen and Fuku can mean clothing, so “chef’s apron”? I know some stupid catering companies with that name.

      Maybe the food sucked.

      • Laney says:

        Daifuku (literally means “great luck”. Ironic since the place ended up closing down.) is a type of rice cake filled w/ anko, a sweetened red bean paste. Very popular in Japan.

        Maybe that’s where they got the name of the company from.

  30. F3rd says:

    Yuki means snow in Japanese. Everyone doesn’t speak English you know. Herpes Pizza, on the other hand, is pure old!

  31. Margo says:

    House of Poon is in Rochester, NY. If you go there, the phone will ring constantly. The lady would answer “House of Poon!” and people hang up – no one believes that is the real name. It is a favorite prank call of the local college kids.

  32. krs69 says:

    i love nudy’s!!

  33. Chingaling says:

    I’ve been going to OK Chinese Food ever since I was a kid. They had really good Chinese Food and they used to ALWAYS pile up on the food.. I don’t know how it is now, but I know it’s still in business lol

  34. kavi says:

    hot aas girls

  35. kavi says:

    i love big boodies

  36. sallyride says:

    Asians have a hard time with the English language no matter how smart they are…
    My husband’s Vietnamese and he translated two of the names for me.
    Cao Dung: Pronounced YUNG or DOONG depending on which of the two D’s is being used from the Vietnamese alphabet.
    A Dong: Is supposed to mean Asian and it’s supposed to sound more like ‘A DOWNG’

    • Your NameNo Nic says:

      Why not TRANSLATE name and also write it in Chinese?

      I would respect that: instead most places have two different names. Eg call the place “Jade Garden” but in Chinese it says “tasty food drink house” or something. Btw, the pandering is really obvious when you use 3rd grader’s characters.

  37. Your NameNo Nic says:

    I’ve eaten at New Big Wong in DC. The food was good!

    I’d also eat at a place called Jerk King, no irony whatsoever.

  38. Oleg says:

    i think we all know why “Senator’s Sausage” is on this list XD then again not everyone follows current events

    • Anon says:

      Hey, that’s the hotdog stand at the Washington Nationals ballpark! They used to be called the Washington Senators-little tongue in cheek there! Gotta love D.C. humor!

  39. Alek says:

    When will be new posts? I want to see hilarious recaps of the Chopped All Stars.

  40. CityBoy says:

    I’ve been to the House of Poon, and know exactly where it is. Good food, but the name’s always made me giggle.

  41. Me So Horny says:

    The 2nd photo (Cao Dung) is NOT a restaurant and should be disqualified, it’s a (beauty) salon.

    Thẩm Mỹ Viện = Salon

  42. TucLoc says:

    Yuki Sushi is in Tucson. I used to go there all of the time a few years back. Decent sushi, I think it’s called Yuki’s now.

  43. pottymouth princess says:

    King Dong finally made the cut! It’s a staple for broke Berkeley students, 30 years and counting!

    You go, King Dong!

  44. Hakuna Fritatta says:

    I’ve eaten at Hung Far Low any number of times. Great food.

  45. Humour says:

    There is a new one on the internet now something like ” Fuk Mi ” =))

  46. Gypsy Blak says:

    HA!! The OK Chinese food place ( Oriental Kid) is right down the street from me! It’s in Van nuys ca. they’re food is…ok…truth in advertising…

  47. StephG says:

    Hey I’ve eaten at Hot n’ Crusty! I even have a pic of it when I was in NYC.

  48. Fat Mike says:

    When I first visited London, there was a South Asian restaurant near Victoria Station named after the owners’ home city in the West Punjab: Lahore House. More recently, the name has changed to Punjab House. The food is still quite good.

  49. Bonster says:

    It’s very disrespect how you think and judge foreign languages. They might sound funny to you, but do you even know what it means? “Yuki” is actually a very common name in Japanese. This website is totally useless. You must’ve have too much time in your life.
