Midnight Burger

Midnight Burger

When Gloria took a waitressing job at a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with it's staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. "When the waves of the universe crash unrelentingly, when the stars seem indifferent to your plight, suddenly there is a diner." We open at 6.

You know how sometimes an ad gets stuck in your head? Well, this time the diner has found itself in a dystopian Earth where the ads are LITERALLY stuck in your head. That's right, it's the worst dystopia of all. No mohawks, no zombies, no improvised weaponry... just more ads.
