It’s all ’90s, all the time inside Saved by the Max, a new pop-up diner in Chicago inspired by the NBC cult favorite.
Preppies and jocks alike can grab a seat and chow down on dishes like AC Sliders and Mac amp Screech – or try a cocktail like Stacey Carosi’s Sofie Mimosie.
The space also features a replica of Mr. Belding’s office, complete with his phone and a filing cabinet full of report cards.
Bonus points to Saved by the Max creator Derek Berry for the payphone, jukebox and logo – and of course that iconic door.
The pre-set playlist features songs every SBTB fan knows and loves, like “Friends Forever” and “Go for It!”
NBC cooperated with the project, allowing Berry to get real with his diner’s décor.
A glass case near the front door houses real props from the series, including a menu from The Max and a Bayside Tigers T-shirt.
At the entrance, a replica of Kelly Kapowski’s locker, complete with her cheer gear, a photo of Zack and those white sneakers.
Among the delicious starters: the AC Sliders, a.k.a. pulled pork mini-sandwiches with Lillie’s Q Good Barbecue Sauce.
Another instant classic: Tori’s Fried Chicken.
