Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Heads up, Quentin Tarantino fans: Right now in Austin, TX a local barbecue restaurant has been transformed into a Big Kahuna Burger, the fictional fast food chain made famous by Pulp Fiction. Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez tweeted the above photo, suggesting that the Big Kahuna Burger would play a part in his upcoming television series From Dusk Till Dawn on his new TV channel El Rey. (The show will be based on Rodriguez and Tarantino's movie of the same title.) Texas Monthly reports that the Stallion Grill's transformation occurred earlier this week and confirms that filming took place there. Below, photographer and Eater tipster Patrick Michels sends along photos of the temporary Big Kahuna Burger. Have a look:
