Here's a guide to 8 popular TV diners, bars and restaurants

We'd love to grab a bite to eat at any of these places.

Are you thinking about what to make for dinner tonight? Why not go out to eat!

We've created a guide to eight (fictional) places that will no doubt satisfy your hunger. Chow down on some classic diner food with the Happy Days gang, or try out something new and exciting with Andy Taylor and Aunt Bee. 

Sure, we can't actually dine out at these eight diners, bars and restaurants that have appeared on our favorite TV shows. But we can always pretend, right?

1. Cheers

Establishment type: Bar

Cuisine: Bar Food

Price: $$

Owned by former Red Sox pitcher Sam Malone, Cheers is a classic place to kick back and enjoy a drink or two. A group of friendly and chatty regulars ensure that when you come here, everyone will know your name. Don't be surprised if you overhear someone else's drama though. 

2. Arnold's

Establishment: Diner

Cuisine: Burgers, Fries, Milkshakes

Price: $

Yep yep yep, this is definitely the coolest place to hang out with your friends. Arnold's is the watering hole any teenage social group looking to escape from their homework assignments for a few hours and jam out to whatever's playing on the jukebox. If you're lucky, you might even catch a surprise performance by Weezer

3. The Max

Establishment type: Diner

Cuisine: Burgers, Fries, Milkshakes

Price: $

Anyone looking for something a little more modern than Arnold's will feel right at home at The Max. Bayside High's favorite hangout features classic diner dishes, dance competitions, and plenty of teenage angst. Oh, and you have the opportunity to visit in real life, too. 

4. Central Perk

Establishment: Café

Cuisine: Coffee, Pastries

Price: $$

The coffee and pastries at this place are delicious are delicious, but it suffers from its constant open-mic sessions, obsessive barista, and forgetful waitress. It can get packed at any random time of the day, so you're almost guaranteed to never get a seat on the sofa. And if you're a woman, there's a large chance you'll be hit on by a guy in a sweater vest.

5. Dead Laslo's Place

Establishment type: Diner

Cuisine: Breakfast, Pancakes, Burnt hash browns

Price: $

Lenny and Squiggy re-opened "Laslo's Place" after the owner died. It's a typical diner set up, with Laverne DeFazio as the head chef and Shirley "Betty" Feeney as the head waitress. You'll have to wait a long time for your food, but you'll also get in a good laugh. 

6. Tropicana

Establishment type: Nightclub

Cuisine: Drinks, Cuban food

Price: $$$

One of the hottest late-night spots on TV, you'd be a fool to miss out on one of Ricky Ricardo's signature performances with his orchestra. If you come on the right night, you might get to see his wife put on a show too, whether it's intended or not. 

7. Aunt Bee's Restaurant

Establishment type: Restaurant

Cuisine: Chinese

Price: $

The town of Mayberry gets a little taste of Asia with Aunt Bee's new Chinese restaurant, "Aunt Bee's Canton Palace," which opened up in the space of the former Spare Ribs Tavern. You can get favorites like Chow Mein and Egg Rolls for a bargain, what's not to love about that?

8. Long Branch Saloon

Establishment type: Saloon

Cuisine: Drinks, Trouble

Price: $

It's the quintessential place for cowboys to gather in Dodge City, Kansas. Miss Kitty's Long Branch Saloon is a rough and tumble establishment that only the most rugged people can handle, so be warned. This bar is definitely not a "Cheers."

Not Cheers for a meal; the Hungry Heifer. Not Aunt Bee's restaurant (which didn't last long and 20 years later was owned by a real sleazy guy); the diner (I'd love to meet Juanita). Or maybe the soda fountain at Walker's Drug store for a quick lunch. I really miss drug store soda fountains. And not the Long Branch. Even Matt, Kitty and everybody else went to Delmonico's or the Dodge House. And not the Tropicana. There was no reference to food being served there, Cuban or otherwise. Besides I wouldn't want to eat in a restaurant run by cheapskate Gale Gordon. We saw Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel dining out but never at the Tropicana.

On "Three's Company", Jack, Janet & Chrissy used to have a beer at "The Regal Beagle".
"The Archie's" used to hang out at "Pop's Choc'lit Shop"

Absolutely correct, my friend.
