Die-hard fans of a video game called 5 Nights at Freddy’s have spent countless hours playing a security guard in a fictional family pizzeria called “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.” The game gained a cult following since the popularity skyrocketed, and now fans want to visit Freddy Fazbear Pizza in person. But is there a Freddy Fazbear Pizza real-life location?
We hate to burst your bubble, but Freddy Fazbear Pizza is not a real pizzeria, and there is no real-life location. A restaurant is a fictional place in the video game 5 Nights at Freddy’s. The creators of the game drew inspiration from Chuck. E Cheese and ShowBiz.
Why Do Many People Believe Freddy Fazbear Pizza Is Real?
Many people who have played the 5 Nights at Freddy’s point out that there is numerous evidence for the pizzeria being a real restaurant. One can find on the Internet hundreds of pictures showing buildings, restaurants with signs “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza,” merchandise with the same logo, and people who are enjoying the supposedly delicious pizzas.
Like this wasn’t surprising enough, enthusiasts have even posted Yelp reviews aboutthe quality of the food and delivery services, and supposedly workers have posted videos on YouTube claiming that they will be suing the place. It doesn’t help that there is a commercial for it where a man states the exact location of the place. However, this is all fake, and the content is solely created for the sake of a more exciting and mysterious horror game experience.
You Can Even Visit Their Official Website
Just when you think it cannot get more confusing, the Internet has a way of perpetuating the illusion. When researching the restaurant, unassuming people can stumble upon the official website of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.
One can read on the fake page that they are a newly remodeled restaurant for children and adults where there are different pizza sizes, wings, and salads on the menu and games and shows for the entire family. The site also features reviews, a gallery, and directions for the location. However, the majority of the text is written as a joke. Upon reading everything thoroughly, one can conclude that the official website is also a part of the horror game and not a real pizzeria.
There Is a Supposed Address on Yelp
Fans who posted reviews on Yelp added the address and location of the fake restaurant. The address is supposedly 2819 E Washington Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91107. However, if you try to research the location and use Google Maps to see the pizzeria, you will be quite disappointed. There is not a single indication that there is a restaurant there. The address is in a California neighborhood where there are no pizzerias.
When it comes to pictures of the restaurant and the building, it has been discovered that people photoshopped pictures of other restaurants and added the sign of Freddy Fazbear Pizza. If you search for their addresses as well, you can see immediately that other stores or restaurants are located there.
There Are No Records of a Business Named Freddy Fazbear Pizza
The rumor that the pizzeria exists has to be disproven, and the best way to do it is to check the official government records of any businesses that match the name ‘Freddy Fazbear Pizza.’ A real business would have to register so as to pay taxes.
Unfortunately, the pizzeria of this name cannot be found in the USA or anywhere around the world. Nobody has registered a similar name, so the fans can stop searching for the restaurant and rest assured that it is only a fictional location.
Visit the Restaurant in the Game
Individuals who are adamant about visiting the restaurant can do it by playing the horror game 5 Nights at Freddy’s. It was released in 2014 for the first time. The main series is made up of nine survival horror games. The platforms one can use to play the game are:
- Microsoft Windows,
- Play Station 4,
- Nintendo Switch,
- Xbox One.
The player becomes a security guard at a small pizza place. The player can spend money customizing the office and the building. After every shift, the player has to evaluate animatronics. The night security guard has to complete the shift without being jump scared by the scary animatronic characters.
All of the information about the pizzeria in the game that the player receives is in the table below.
|Type of restaurant||Family-friendly pizzeria and entertainment|
|Inhabitants||Bonnie, Freddy Fazbear, Foxy, Chica, Golden Freddy (ghost) and Endo-01|
|Debut||Five Nights at Freddy’s|
Exploring the restaurant is possible within the game since the security guard that the player controls has access to cameras that provide views of various parts of the pizzeria.
Go to Chuck E. Cheese Instead
The creators of the horror game drew inspiration from the restaurants such as Chuck E. Cheese and ShowBiz Pizza. The main feature that inspires the game is the animal mascots. ShowBiz Pizza had various ads with animated characters that resemble the characters from the game. However, ShowBiz Pizza Place doesn’t exist anymore and it has merged into Chuck E. Cheese.
If you want to experience a similar pizzeria like Freddy Fazbear Pizza head to Chuck E. Cheese. This restaurant even featured a brand of animatronics called Munch’s Make Believe Brand. Also, the mysterious stories about the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant can match the atmosphere of the game.
Disappointing As It Is, Freddy Fazbear Pizza Remains Fictitious
Don’t be fooled by the overwhelming number of photographs on the Internet with buildings that have the logo of the game, their official website, or the in-depth Yelp reviews about their tomato sauce and meat toppings. All the addresses that were featured alongside some of the photographs and reviews have been proven to be fake. Even the commercial that was filmed of the supposed pizzeria indicating that it exists was made for the purpose of promoting the game.
If you really want to know what Freddy Fazbear Pizza is really like, explore the game. In case horror games are not your cup of tea, dining at ShowBiz Pizza or Chuck E. Cheese can be a good replacement.
