Manhunt Wiki has an article on Burger Shot

Burger Shot (formerly The Burger Shot) is a chain of hamburger fast-food restaurants in both the 3D Universe and HD Universe of the Grand Theft Auto series. The player can buy stocks from them on the website in Grand Theft Auto V.



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 chain 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, as well as GTA Vice City Stories, which mention that the restaurant sold V-Rock window stickers as part of the station's Vulture Prize Patrol promotion.

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 Burger Shot operates its own website,; certain Benson trucks also carry the Burger Shot logo. According to the Burger Shot website, they have a partnership with the Bank of Liberty, as all Merry Meals come with a "Kids Kredit Kard." 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. Burgers wrapped in Burger Shot paper can also randomly be found (and eaten for health, unless they are moldy) in green dumpsters.


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. The clerk will sometimes mention the eponymous Burger Shot meal in dialogue when he serves food to the player.

Burger Shot in GTA San Andreas, however, offers 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 $ 10 0%

Grand Theft Auto IV[]

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, 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:

Meal Price Image
"Heart Stopper" $6.99
"Bleeder Meal" $3.99
"Money Shot Meal" $6.99
"Torpedo Meal" $6.66


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.

Los Santos[]

Las Venturas[]

San Fierro[]

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:

Grand Theft Auto: 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 and Grand Theft Auto Online[]

Burger Shot reappears in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, 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 Grand Theft Auto: 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. Another Burger Shot makes a small appearance in the mission Management Issues, when OG Loc phones Carl to let him know that one of Madd Dogg’s chauffeurs left the Burger Shot in Temple and that he must steal his car. 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. As for collectibles, the Burger Shot in Garcia, San Fierro, has a Camera pick-up at the entrance. The Burger Shot in Calton Heights, San Fierro, has a Snapshot in front of the big spinning burger statue on top of the restaurant.

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?.

  • "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 are commonly found in the shared 3D Universe title Manhunt 2, using the logo introduced in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City[]

  • In The Definitive Edition, garbage bins with the Burger Shot logo are added to the food courts in North Point Mall. However, they anachronistically use the 1992 logo depicted in GTA San Andreas rather than the 1986 logo.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas[]

  • The non-interactive menu inscribed that "Everything is 69¢". This is yet another example of the 69 running gag in the series.
    • Upon closer inspection, however, all of the menus are listed for 29¢.
    • 'Freedom fries' are listed on the menu; however, the real-life 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.
  • During the mission Drive-Thru, the box containing Ryder's food has the Burger Shot logo on it, despite the fact that they were at a Cluckin' Bell.
  • A unique gray Bullet can be found parked at the Calton Heights location with a license plate that says "CHUNKY".
  • If the player spooks anyone in the restaurant, everyone will either put their hands up or cower in fear. This behavior also extends to cops when they appear in the restaurant during three star or higher wanted level. They will not attack the player, instead performing the aforementioned animations like everyone else, with them still carrying their Pistol in their hand. This also applies to The Well Stacked Pizza Co..

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 [sic]".
    • Fine print text is also present on a different "The Bleeder" poster: "Only some restaurants offer thisdeal [sic], and it is only before 8AM".
  • 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.
  • Cups and bags sporting the 3D Universe logo can be found throughout Liberty City, notably under the seats of subway trains.

Grand Theft Auto V[]

  • Burger Shot is represented as BSHT on the BAWSAQ website, which is short for "bullshit".
  • In the Strangers and Freaks mission Pulling Another Favor, Tonya will talk to Franklin about the time that they had sex behind a Burger Shot when they were only 13, although Franklin denies that anything happened.
  • According to an unused Police Scanner audio file, a Vinewood Burger Shot was intended to be in the game. However, it does not exist. It is possible that it was replaced by Up-n-Atom Burger.
