HOLLYWOOD – Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, where you can finally try Ed’s sauce.
Woah, it’s good.
Many ‘90s kids will remember the orange condiment that had a ratio of sour to sweet so divine that it saved a flailing fast-food restaurant in 1997’s “All That” spinoff movie “Good Burger.” Now, the creation of Kel Mitchell’s clueless, Milli-Vanilli-haired Ed is part of an immersive pop-up restaurant that’s taking reservations in Los Angeles now through the end of the year.
If you ask Mitchell – a co-producer on Nickelodeon’s revived “All That” and co-founder of the pop-up restaurant – about what’s in the sauce, he’ll start answering in his Ed Valley-guy drawl.
New Hollywood Podcast: Kel Mitchell Talks ‘All That’ Reboot, His ‘Good Burger’ Legacy And Love For Orange Soda
Posted on Jul 31, 2019
During the mid-’90s — specifically 1994 — we were still basking in grunge, films like Reality Bites and shows like My So-Called Life were defining a generation while chokers, baby doll dresses, crop tops and “The Rachel” hairstyle were all the rage. Then, on April 16, 1994, Nickelodeon debuted the comedy sketch show called All That and it sparked a very specific golden age of TV for young adults. The series starred Angelique Bates, Lori Beth Denberg, Katrina Johnson, Alisa Reyes, Josh Server, Kenan Thompson and, this week’s guest on the New Hollywood PodcastKel Mitchell. 25 years later the show is a benchmark in pop culture and Mitchell is executive producing (and appearing in) a reboot of All That which not only introduces the good-natured, silly sketch show to a new generation but also sparks nostalgia for those who remember laughing a Coach Kreeton for the first time.
Mitchell said that All That is a hybrid of In Living Color and Saturday Night Live, but spoke to a younger generation. The series was a launchpad for the Kenan and Kel series and the Good Burgermovie — which led to his role in the superhero comedy Mystery Men. Mitchell also talked about how the All That reboot translates in 2019 and how he is more than happy to utter his iconic catchphrases for fans of all ages (“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger can I take your order?!). He also reminisced about talking to the late Aaliyah when she was on the show, drinking orange soda at five-star restaurants and why he chooses the Good Burger pop-up restaurant over Five Guys and In-and-Out. Listen to the episode below.

All That’ is making a comeback. The reboot of the classic Nickelodeon series premieres June 15. HL spoke EXCLUSIVELY with OG star Kel Mitchell about his advice to the new cast and more.
The pop culture phenomenon known as All That is returning for a new generation of kids. The reboot, premiering June 15 at 8:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon, will feature an all-new cast of kids, with original cast members such as Kel Mitchell, Josh Server, and Lori Beth Denberg making special appearances. Kenan Thompson and Kel will be serving as executive producers. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Kel at Nickelodeon SlimeFest on June 8 about the reboot. We asked Kel what kind of advice he’s given to the new cast members.
“I have been given them a lot of comedy advice, which has been great,” Kel told HollywoodLife. “These kids are some great listeners. They bring the physical comedy, and in the auditions, they came in with their own voices and their own characters. I also told them to have a good sense of themselves and told them that they were special before they got on the show so that they can just enjoy it. No competition between one another, it’s a team effort. It has been great to give notes to other producers and get in there too and act. I am wearing two hats so it’s cool!”
The original All That aired from 1994 until 2005. In addition to Kenan, Kel, Josh, and Lori, the show also featured well-known stars like Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon. All That is beloved amongst ’90s kids and the love for the show remained alive long after it ended. Kel said that fans are the reason why the show is coming back in the first place! “I mean, even last year before we even announced SlimeFest or All That, everybody was talking about All That,” he told HollywoodLife. “I was being stopped in the street and people wanted me to do ‘Good Burger’ and talking about orange soda. So it’s all about the fans and we really did it for them!”
During the premiere episode, the Jonas Brothers will be featured in the “Good Burger” skit with Kel. They will also close the show with a performance of their hit “Sucker.”
