Big Kahuna Burger

The fictional burger joint Big Kahuna Burger is mentioned in several of Quentin Tarantino’s films, but the most memorable reference occurs in the classic Pulp Fiction, in the infamous scene when Jules and Vincent bust in on the unfortunate folks who wronged Marcellus Wallace and proceed to eat their burgers and shoot up the place. Since the name’s use in films, some restaurants have referenced it in either their name or that of a dish on their menu. Big kahuna literally means big priest or magician. The big kahuna was like the head person to the tribe.
