America's favorite national quick service factory farmed restaurant chain, and shining beacon of the global march towards cultural homogenization.

— Description at LCN.com.

Burger Shot. Die with a smile on your face!
Burger Shot. Kill your hunger! It's bleedin' tasty!

Burger Shot (formerly The Burger Shot) is a chain of hamburger fast-food restaurants. The player can buy stocks from them on the Lcn-exchange.com website in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

The first appearance of Burger Shot (as "The Burger Shot") at the North Point Mall, Vice Point, Vice City in GTA Vice City.

It is a parody of American fast food chains Hardee's and Burger King. The name and color scheme resembles Burger King, but the style of logo resembles Hardee's. Its notoriously unhealthy and sub-par food, aggressive marketing tactics (especially towards children in particular), and boastful identity (even prizing its status as America's favorite chain restaurant) suggests that it also parodies McDonald's (though McDonald's is parodied in the HD Universe as Wigwam Burger).

Burger Shot first appeared in the form of "The Burger Shot," a small restaurant in GTA Vice City (among many other less known outlets in the Game) where the player can replenish their health if it is below 100 points. The restaurant has risen in prominence in GTA San Andreas, where it is now a large chain based in multiple locations. In addition to replenishing health, Burger Shot in GTA San Andreas allows the player to eat from a range of set meals in order to eliminate their hunger, or accumulate fat by eating fatty food. Burger Shot is absent as a restaurant chain in GTA Liberty City Stories and GTA Vice City Stories (with the location of its western food court and neighboring The Cheesy Crust Pizza Co. being occupied by Flap Lickin' Chickin, while the eastern food court locations were undeveloped spaces). However, it is mentioned in radio commercials in GTA Liberty City Stories.

Burger Shot re-appears in GTA IV as a location where the player can replenish their health. Players can purchase a $1 "Bleeder" burger at any Burger Shot restaurant for full health. The player can also download a Burger Shot background for their upgraded phone via Vipluxuryringtones.com. Burger Shot operates its own website, Burgershot.net; certain Benson trucks also carry the Burger Shot logo. In Episodes from Liberty City, the Burger Shot and Weazel merchandise a menu with Republican Space Rangers action figures. The chain is one of the sponsors of the CNT show, I'm Rich.

Burger Shot outlets are inaccessible in GTA Chinatown Wars, but players can obtain food prizes from Burger Shot in the form of fries or burgers for health by purchasing its scratch cards.

Menu

GTA Vice CityGTA San Andreas

Originally, The Burger Shot in GTA Vice City lacks any readable menus, although it still does display images of a variety of burgers, sandwiches, and side dishes. Burger Shot in GTA San Andreas, however, offer the player four meals, each with different quantities of fats, with one meal, the Salad Meal, lacking any fats. The names "beef tower" and "meat stack" are both obvious sexual euphemisms for penis. In Las Venturas outlets, the pricing of the Beef Tower, Meat Stack, and Salad Meal are 20% higher than in the rest of the state, as noted below:

Meal Cost Fat % +
Moo Kids Meal $ 2 1%
Beef Tower $ 5 2%
Meat Stack $ 10 3%
Salad Meal $ 5 0%

Grand Theft Auto IV

A Burger Shot menu in GTA IV. All the menu list are unavailable except the Bleeder.

In GTA IV, the player can only purchase a $1 "Bleeder" burger, and outings with friend or girlfriends to Burger Shots will nominally cost even higher at $100. It is interesting to note Burger Shot tills, as well as burgershot.net, also promote four meals on menus in a similar fashion as what is offered in GTA San Andreas, although only the "Bleeder" burger is available and consists of only a single burger costing $1:

Locations

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

In GTA Vice City, The Burger Shot outlets in Vice City are located in the North Point Mall in Vice Point alongside another three outlets (the Beef Bandit, Cheesy Crust Pizza and Shaft Hot Dogs) on both the east and west sides of the mall.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

In GTA San Andreas, Burger Shot is located in each of San Andreas' three major cities, Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas, and as a result is not found in rural San Andreas.

There are ten Burger Shot outlets in total; two in Los Santos, three in San Fierro, and five in Las Venturas. The Old Venturas Strip has two Burger Shot outlets that are only a short walk from each other.

The same female server appears in all the locations. In contrast to her counterparts at Well Stacked Pizza Co., and Cluckin' Bell, her attitude towards the customer is overly ingratiating.

Grand Theft Auto IV

In Grand Theft Auto IV, Burger Shot operates a total of ten outlets in and throughout Liberty City and Alderney State alone, including two integrated mini-restaurants at the city's two Memory Lanes bowling alleys, and one closed outlet in Cerveza Heights, Dukes. Some of the outlets features padding on the windows and signs on the entrance stating that the store has either undergone renovation, closed down, or moved. They include as follows:

GTA Chinatown Wars

The distribution of Burger Shots in GTA Chinatown Wars is mostly the same, but with the Alderney branch and Memory Lanes outlets omitted, as Alderney is not in the game and Memory Lanes are not accessible.

Grand Theft Auto V

Burger Shot reappears in Grand Theft Auto V, with the same logo as in GTA IV. However, the stores are no longer accessible. There are two Burger Shot restaurants in Los Santos, located in Vespucci Canals and the Pleasure Pier. Its main stock competitor is Up-n-Atom Burger.

Scratch Cards

In GTA Chinatown Wars, scratch cards promoted by Burger Shot can be purchased at various stores, and the player can win cash or free food.

Mission Appearances

In GTA San Andreas, the Marina branch of Burger Shot in Los Santos is a significant location for several missions, where it temporarily becomes OG Loc's place of employment, working as a "hygiene technician" (a cleaner) as part of his parole work placement. It is from this outlet that OG Loc asks for Carl Johnson's help to kick-start his rap career. In addition, the Redsands East Burger Shot in Las Venturas features a parked Faggio that is used to perform a courier side-quest with the Burger Shot outlet as the nerve center where the player refills his stock of "merchandise." Upon completion of the side-quest, the outlet becomes an asset that pays the player $2,000 a day.

In GTA IV, Burger Shot makes a slight cameo in First Date in the beginning cutscene as one of the possible locations for Niko to take his date or friend to. In the cutscene, Little Jacob is seen eating a "Bleeder" (a Burger Shot delicacy) right outside of it.

In GTA Chinatown Wars, the Beechwood City Burger Shot is where the player meets with Lester Leroc for his strand of missions.

In GTA V, Michael drives Jimmy to a Burger Shot to receive a drugged soda from Ahron Ward during the mission Did Somebody Say Yoga?.

Trivia

General

  • "Burger Shot" is a slang term for a photo of the female genitalia. It is also the name of a series of sandwiches once available at Burger King, the restaurant Burger Shot appears to be based on.
  • Burger Shot paper bags and cups appear in Manhunt 2.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • 'Freedom fries' are listed on the menu. This creates an anachronism as the freedom fries controversy occurred in 2003, whereas GTA: San Andreas takes place in 1992.
  • The downtown San Fierro Burger Shot is frequently impacted by the Random Plane Crash Glitch.

Grand Theft Auto IV

  • The closed Burger Shot in Cerveza Heights, Dukes, is missing a few of the letters from its sign. The remaining letters read "Bugs r Sht"
  • Burger Shot is mentioned in a song on The Beat 102.7 called Consequence - I Hear Footsteps, which was originally recorded for the game.
  • At the Burger Shot on Topaz Street, it is split between two neighborhoods; when the player goes to the counter, they are in North Holland. When the player goes out the side exit, they are in Varsity Heights.
  • If one looks closely at the menu in all Burger Shots it says at the very bottom of both "The Bleeder" and "The Heart Stopper" parts in fine print "This burger may kill you. We can't be held respondsible". (note the word "responsible" being misspelled.)
    • Fine print text is also present on a different "The Bleeder" poster: "Only some restaurants offer thisdeal, and it is only before 8AM". (this time the words "this" and "deal" are mistakenly combined together as one word.)
  • The company's website mentions that customers often complain that competitor Wigwam Burger's fries are better; this is a reference to a common opinion that McDonald's fries are better than Burger King's fries.
  • The two Burger Shot stores in The Meat Quarter are right next to each other, with one being inside of Memory Lanes, and the other one just outside by the pier.
