Buckle up, ’90s kids. 

A Saved By the Bell-themed “pop-up diner” has opened in Chicago, and from the Instagram posts, it’s a pretty subversive experience

It’s called Saved by the Max, and it’s decorated just like Zack, Kelly, Slater, and Screech’s after-school hangout spot from the show.

You’ll eventually be able to make reservations online at, but for the time being, service is first come, first serve.
