Stinky Burgers is a restaurant that was the only place to buy a burger when Mr. Krabs and Plankton were kids. It was a fast food business owned by Stinky, a rich man who is quite overweight. It appears in a flashback in the episode "Friend or Foe."
Stinky Burgers was a small store with an average look. It had a metal roof of low quality and the sign was orange with the text "Stinky" in bold-yellow letters, and a black "Burgers" text. Next to that was a dried-out clam that was spouting out a rancid breath. It had a small foghorn coming out from the left side, an ordering window, and a door that only Stinky was able to enter.
Inside Stinky Burgers was a kitchen. Customers did not eat inside though. Outside the cooking area were seats and chairs with an umbrella, shielding bad sun or rain. They were not of great quality. There was also an overfilled trash can on the right.
The whole area was surrounded by a very low brick wall.
Food and inspiration
The food was not perfect, but it was the only place to get a burger. This gave Plankton and Mr. Krabs an idea to make their own burger called the Plabs Burger.
Because Stinky Burgers was quite filthy, it was closed down by the health department for cleanliness issues. Outside the brick wall was also a bin that was spilled, which caused bad germs, therefore making Stinky Burgers contaminated and disgusting.
