Los Angeles is no longer living in a reality of its own making. As of yesterday, much of what was thought to be true has been irrevocably altered, forever shifted. L.A. is now living in a post The Simpsons town world, where the long-running cartoon as home to life. And yes, you really can drink at Moe’s and eat at Krusty Burger.

That’s because Universal Studios Hollywood, the oversized amusement park that’s gobbling up our freeways at an alarming rate, has unleashed a full scale replica of many of the major attractions found inside the world of The Simpsons. Previously, such unbelievable things were confined to Florida, with its own masquerading Universal Studios in Orlando.

So what sort of insane whimsy is possible inside the new Simpsons town at Universal Studios? Well, the Duff Beer actually pours from the taps inside of Krusty Burger, for one. There’s also a full slate of real burgers and hot dogs available, from the 6 ounce Krusty Burger to a Ribwich, a veggie burger and a foot long Side Show Bob frankfurter. Also, waffle cut fries.

So how is the food? Honestly, it doesn’t matter. For anyone stepping inside the Moe’s or Krusty Burger or Kwik-E-Mart, enjoying the food is well beyond the point.
