Pablo’s Escoburgers, a pop-up restaurant in Australia, is taking heat for its name and marketing.

The Escoburgers are served up with a side of “cocaine” that is actually garlic powder. Also included are fake, rolled-up $100 bills. Another meal comes with a clear plastic bag filled with white powder and a spoon.

Pablo Escobar, nicknamed the King of Cocaine, was a Colombian cartel leader known for supplying at least 80 per cent of the drug smuggled into the US in the late 1980s. This amounted to Escobar turning over US$21.9 billion a year in personal income.

Understandably, the group has seen critics show up all over the internet. The restaurant pop-up has stood up to those critics on its Facebook page. In one response the group stated,

”We do not condone, idolise or promote Pablo Emilio Escobar or his actions in any way… We are however Australian and know how to have a laugh about a good play on words.”

In another comment, the group posted that,

“Lovers love our burgers and haters are always going to hate! Not all Colombians are going to love our name but they all love our burgers.”

We will let you decide if they are crossing over the line.
