7. Holsten’s: The Sopranos — Bloomfield, New Jersey

It's only "the best in da state," according to Tony Soprano. If you remember the last episode of HBO's hit show The Sopranos, then you remember Holsten's. This ice cream parlor is famous for its homemade candy and ice cream. Visitors on Yelp are always talking about their onion rings, so make sure to try them.

8. Cafe Grumpy: Girls — New York

You probably recognize Cafe Grumpy because it's where Lena Dunham's Hannah worked at on the show Girls. Not only do they have a cool logo, but they have an online shop with cool grumpy merchandise.

9. Ben's Pizzeria: Louie — New York

You've seen this pizza joint in every episode of FX's Louie and that's because it's featured in the show's intro. Ben's Pizzeria is famous for its grandma slices and also for being the number one destination for drunk food.

11. Twede’s Café: Twin Peaks — North Bend, Washington

If you're a fan of the show Twin Peaks then it's mandatory for you to order a slice of cherry pie and "excuse me, a damn fine cup o' coffee." Twede's Cafe is a family-owned restaurant that became super famous in the '90s after David Lynch decided to make it the setting of his TV show.

12. Billy Goat’s Tavern: SNL — New York

"CHEEZBORGER, CHEEZBORGER, CHEEZBORGER," is the SNL tune that made this restaurant even more famous. Billy Goat's Tavern & Grill is known for its burgers and for the Billy Goat Curse, which entails the Chicago Cubs not winning anymore since 1945.

13. Dmitri’s: Orange Is The New Black — New York

Remember that scene in Orange Is The New Black where Piper goes to visit Red's restaurant? Well, it's a real deli, but instead of Dmitri's it's called Rosario's. The deli is located in Astoria off the N/Q lines. It's well-known for its cold cut sandwiches, pizza, and Italian products.

14. Jimbo’s Place: Dexter — Virginia Key, Florida

You might recognize this restaurant from the first episode on Season 1 of Dexter, or from the first episode of Season 5, when Dexter killed a man. Whichever it is, Jimbo's Place unfortunately closed in 2012. However, Jimbo's was not a place where you'd find any serial killers — either good or bad — but instead you'd find great people to play some bocce ball, drink, and just have a good time with.
