Yes, you read that correctly.
Mom’s Spaghetti is Eminem’s new carryout restaurant located in Detroit and yes, they serve ‘sghetti.
Eminem surprised guests by serving spaghetti at the grand opening of his Mom’s Spaghetti restaurant in downtown Detroit this past Wednesday.
And while he was not expected to be there, he drove up in a car and quickly popped into the serving window. The name of the rapper’s restaurant is in reference to a line from Eminem’s 2002 hit “Lose Yourself.”
“His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy,” Eminem raps. “There’s vomit on his sweater already, mom’s spaghetti.”
According to the promo, the menu boasts a variety of carb-centric entrees that you choose from, like: “Mom’s Spaghetti for $9, Mom’s Spaghetti with Meatballs for $12 and a ‘Sgetti Sandwich, spaghetti on bread, for $11.”
Followed by the tag line: “Mom’s Spaghetti — it’s all ready.”
The Oscar and Grammy-winning rapper and actor experimented with the eatery as a pop-up restaurant in 2017. The restaurant, located on Woodward Avenue, has limited seating and a walk-up window.
Many users were blown away by the announcement, with users praising the genius idea and also, poking fun at the rapper.
“I’m so happy about this,” one user said. “The world is such a terrifying place all the time now, and things like this bring me enough joy to face the rest of it all. I just… I love you, mom’s spaghetti.”
While one user joked: “I can’t wait to see him release his new line of gloves. PALMS-ARE-SWEATY.”
Followed by: “What the h****, I cant tell if Em is trolling us by finally getting into memes or actually just further acknowledging that he embraced the Mom Spaghetti meme.”
And my personal favorite: “I need Guy Fieri to do an episode of ‘Diners Drive In and Dives’ at this place.”
As well as: “Next year, Em should just host a concert in front of Mom’s Spaghetti and rap ‘Lose Yourself’ to celebrate its 20TH anniversary of the song in front of the whole crowd of Detroit, MI… Just saying! ????❤️????”
Aaaaand we save the best for last: “I just can’t wait…..either way it’s gonna be good. I don’t care if it’s an album or a real restaurant!!!”
