Australian “Karen” Dining Experience Coming to Washington This Summer
Great food and really bad service are what have made Karen's Diner so famous and popular around the world, and now it is coming to Washington State!
What is Karen's Diner?
Karen's Diner is a chain of restaurants started in Australia that has amazing American 50's diner food combined with really bad "Karen" service.
Their website says "at Karen's (Diner), you will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters and forced to play a variety of games."
There are 20 locations worldwide of "Karen" restaurants in New Zealand, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Now Karen's Diner is coming to Washington State this summer!
The Food at Karen's Diner
Karen's Diner serves American diner food 50's style but without breakfast options so don't ask or you'll get an earfull.
They have multiple burgers, all themed with funny "Karen" names like Karen's Got Real Beef, with slow-cooked BBQ beef brisket, bacon, caramelized onions, coleslaw, and honey BBQ sauce.
Other popular and fun items on the menu include The Basic Karen, The Fiery Karen, and the I 'Want to See the Manager' Karen.
The Service at Karen's Diner
The Food is great at Karen's Diner, but the service is what really makes them famous.
They warn "if you've got a mate who's a bit up their own ass, you now know where to find us! Maybe it's even to break the first date ice, or give your partner a roasting for not messaging back quickly enough."
Even though it may seem like there are no rules because of the playful banter of the staff, there are some important ones. Here are the basics so you don't get banned for breaking them.
-No racist, sexist, homophobic or ableist comments or slurs will be tolerated
-No body shaming.
-No sexual harassment.
-Any damage or vandalism of the venue will lead to instant removal from the venue. (Charges may also apply)
-Keep your food and drink on your tables, don't throw them, it's not fun.
