The beginning of Mondo BurgerEdit
Although Good Burger was stored at the same location for forty years, Mondo Burger was built as a new fast food chain that was a bigger building across the street from it, serving as competition to the small time Good Burger. Kurt Bozwell was the owner and was guaranteeing that Mondo Burger would have Good Burger destroyed and put out of business. After Mondo Burger was built, Kurt and his two employees Griffin and Troy hired several teenage employers including Dexter Reed one of the films protagonists. Dexter was trying to get a summer job in order to pay off the debts to his teacher Mr Wheat's car. In the Mondo Burger kitchen, Dexter accidentally made a mess while trying to properly make a burger. Kurt was infuriated and tells Dexter that there is one thing that he can not stand and it is an "incompetent, bumbling, sloppy, fast food employee!". Later Kurt delivers a speech giving the employees the life that they need to have revolved around Mondo Burger. After Dexter silently insults Kurt, he overhears this and demands to know who was talking while he was talking. Griffin pointed at Dexter and says that he uttered something. Kurt approaches Dexter, openly mocks him and says his catchphrase, "You mess with Kurt and you go into the grinder." When Dexter questions him on what his grinder is, Kurt, still thinking that he's being mocked, fires Dexter and orders his security to throw him out.
Later Kurt, Griffin, and Troy host the grand opening of Mondo Burger, first was a celebratory party to celebrate the opening and then Kurt introduces the crowd to the Mondo Burger restaurant. When the neon lights from the sign causes the electricity to shut down over at Good Burger, Kurt welcomes the gala customers to the restaurant and scissor cuts the red line to allow the entrance for the customers. After seeing the Good Burger restaurant dark, Troy says that it looks like Good Burger closed early tonight and Kurt adds that he's sure pretty soon Good Burger would have to close down for good. Following the popularity of Mondo Burger which is notorious as the main burger of Mondo Burger is called the "Big Booty Burger." Good Burger raises its own popularity by producing its all new Ed's sauce, which was created famously by Ed. Kurt and his employees are outraged as to why Good Burger would have so many customers as they had. Kurt demands for them to find out what's in they're sauce. Griffin says he'll go and have some checked out.
Later, Kurt tells Ed that he will pay him double his salary if he comes to work for him at Mondo Burger. But with Dexter's help, Ed turns down the offer. Kurt then decides to send one of his employees an attractive woman named Roxanne to seduce Ed into telling her the recipe for the sauce. After a date in which Ed was feeling surprised and flipped over, Roxanne when she was about to kiss him. The injured Roxanne angrily quits her job at Mondo Burger.
Later, Ed and Dexter sneak into Mondo Burger disguised as women to find out what is wrong with their burgers. It is revealed that a chemical acid called Triampathol is injected into the burgers which makes them big and moody. The chemical is illegal but Kurt doesn't care what effect it may have on the customers. Dexter warns them that if the people find that he's putting illegal stuff in their meat, Kurt will find himself in jail. Kurt says, "That's why nobody outside this kitchen is gonna find out." Kurt then tries to force the sauce recipe out of Ed but fails to do so. To keep them from going to the cops, Kurt, Griffin, and Troy commit Ed and Dexter to a mental asylum called Demented Hills run by their friend, Wade.
With Ed and Dexter out of the way, Kurt, Griffin, and Troy break into Good Burger after hours, when they put shark poison in the sauce to give customers food poisoning, hoping to have Good Burger shut down. Otis, Ed and Dexter's co-worker awakens and tries to stop them. But the three commit him to the asylum as well.
The next day, with help from some of the asylums patients who they befriend, Ed, Dexter, and Otis escape from Demented Hills, and return to Good Burger to save a customer from taking a bite from her poisonous burger.
Kurt Confronts Ed and DexterEdit
Ed and Dexter then return to Mondo Burger to get a can of Triampathol to give to the police. They sneak in through the building from the rooftop right through a smoking chimney that's disguised as a straw. Dexter sneaks into the kitchen and after taunting Griffin and Troy he squirts them with ketchup and mustard guns and flees forcing the other employees to give chase. Ed sneaks into the kitchen and tries a can of the Triampathol. but accidentally knocks over all the cans one of which opens and releases some of the substance into the meat grinder . Ed tries to pick up the can, but pours more of the substance into the beef, with an idea, Ed pours another can into the grinder. He then leaves with an empty can in his hand. He reaches Dexter and the other employees who are lead by Kurt back on the rooftop as they are confronting Dexter. Ed tells Dexter he got the can but Dexter laments thinking Ed was going to the police station with the can. Griffin then takes the empty can and shoves Ed next to Dexter. Kurt then takes it and realizes that the can is empty causing an immediate uproar of laughter. Dexter questions Ed as to why he would steal an "empty can" but Ed tells Dexter that it wasn't empty when he found it. Ed then gives Dexter a hint about his idea causing Dexter to become confused.
The Destruction of Mondo BurgerEdit
Back in the kitchen, the grill, which produces the burgers to become bigger, churns out the burgers which become much bigger (due to the triampathol overdose), but the employees inside are unaware of it. Soon the huge burgers explode, forcing the employees to flee the kitchen in terror. The grill then malfunctions, causing the building to shake violently like an earthquake. The inside of the restaurant falls apart as giant props and others topple over. The huge burgers continue to explode inside the kitchen (including one in a microwave) as the building continues to shake. Back on the rooftop Kurt and the others soon learn of the kitchen's disaster and flee back inside the building, while Ed and Dexter escape. The kitchen also shakes violently as pans and trays fall from the shelf and on the conveyor belt that slides the burgers. Kurt, Griffin, and Troy enter as Kurt panics and yells that they have to stop the grill. Unfortunately a huge burger explodes in-front of them and Troy yells that they should get out of here. As customers and other employees flee the building while it falls apart (Kurt, Griffin, and Troy among them) other props collapse and fall including the large neon Mondo Burger sign above the counter which falls and sparks to the ground. Three customers who are fleeing the building then shatter the entrance glass doors. Unfortunately, Mr Wheat is unaware of the danger as he arrives to have lunch at the restaurant, he sees the shaking from the building that causes the huge statue burger to fall on his car, smashing it.
The end of Mondo Burger as we know itEdit
When the police and fire department arrive along with an ambulance that stretchers out an injured employee, Kurt is arrested by the cops while Troy and Griffin are questioned by other policeman. Ed and Dexter having hopped on the fire truck arrive back in front of the restaurant and tell the police that Kurt was using the illegal food additive to make the burgers big and beefy. Kurt yells that they are lying but the cops revealed that they have found the remaining cans inside the restaurant and take Kurt to jail. Thus with Mondo Burger destroyed, Ed and Dexter are praised as heroes for saving Good Burger.
