Stalk It: Jack Rabbit Slim’s restaurant , from Pulp Fiction, is located at 1435 Flower Street , on the southwest corner of Sonora Avenue and Flower Street, in Glendale.
The Jack Rabbit Slim sequence in Pulp fiction was actually filmed at the Famous Mel’s. In the film, Mia (Uma Thurman) takes Vincent (Travolta) to the restaurant. The waitstaff and entertainers resemble 1950s personalities such as Ed Sullivan (the maÃ®tre d’), Buddy Holly and Marilyn Monroe (both of whom are waiters).
Fans visiting L.A. would seek out the location only to discover it wasn’t a real place. In fact, there was so much interest in the pop culture diner that Disney, who acquired Miramax in 1993 and therefore owned Pulp Fiction , wanted to recreate Jackrabbit Slim’s as an actual restaurant at Disney World in Orlando.
Mia orders the “ Durwood Kirby burger , bloody, and the $5 shake.” Buddy asks, “How do you want that shake? The burger that Jules tries a bite of looks like a standard fast food burger – a single patty with a slice of American cheese, iceberg lettuce, chopped white onion and ketchup.
As Dazed Magazine points out, a perfect example is Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction . When she’s sitting at the table in the diner and describing the pilot of her fictional television program Fox Force Five to Vincent Vega, she basically sums up the plot of Kill Bill .
While listening to Urge Overkill’s version of Neil Diamond’s “Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon”, Mia overdoses after snorting heroin she finds in Vince’s coat pocket, which she was wearing, believing it to be cocaine. Mia wakes up with a howl and, when asked to say something, says “something”.
The prevailing theory is that the briefcase is Marcellus Wallace’s soul and that he sold it to the Devil in exchange for his prominence and success as a gangster. The evidence? The scar on the back of his head, which is clearly visible throughout most of the film, is where his soul was taken from.
Of note is the fact that Mia orders a “Durward Kirby” burger from the Jack Rabbit Slims menu, which doesn’t appear on the prop itself. She also orders a Five Dollar shake, while Vincent orders the “Douglas Sirk” steak, named after the famous filmmaker and a vanilla coke.

Mia accidentally finds the heroin Vincent is carrying. Mia snorts a big line of heroin and OD’s. After coming back from the bathroom, Vincent discovers her in the overdosed state. He quickly puts Mia in the car and rushes back to Lance’s house to get some help.
Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children.

6. The Vincent Vega . This confection — essentially a coffee-spiked Coca-Cola — is named after Jon Travolta’s character in Pulp Fiction, who memorably ordered a vanilla Coke with his steak. The drink , available at The Mission in San Francisco, includes Coca-Cola, a shot of espresso, vanilla syrup, served over ice.
