The theatrical trailer featured a scene that didn't make the movie. It featured a Good Burger customer saying "just give me a good shake" and then Ed reaching over the counter to shake him.
Manny's El Loco restaurant was used for the filming location of the Good Burger restaurant.
Linda Cardellini's feature film debut.
Good Burger manager Mr. Bailey is played by Dan Schneider, who wrote the screenplay and also created many Nickelodeon shows, including All That, which featured the recurring skit on which the film is based.
The first line in the film is the same as the last line. "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?"
To promote the film, there was the "Good Burger, Good Premiere, Good Sweepstakes". Four grand prize winners won tickets to the film's premiere, $1000, and they got to meet Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell. 100 first prize winners won a fabric hat with dreadlocks resembling those of the main character Ed's, and 500 second place winners won a copy of the film's soundtrack that had a label saying it was "Licensed for Promotional Use. Not for sale."
The scene where Ed and Dexter have their dates with Roxanne and Monique was filmed at Malibu Castle in Redondo Beach, California. As of 2013, the castle and golf courses are completely gone and it is now the site of a hotel franchise.
Based on the skit "Good Burger" from the Nickelodeon series, All That (1994).
In the beginning of the movie, when Ed is hurrying to Good Burger and the customer is counting down from 5, you can see a fold-out chair on the roof. Like from the scene where they go to Ed's "secret" place.

To date, the first and only Nickelodeon movie based on a live-action show. Although technically, it wasn't based on the show, but rather a skit from within the show. There was no "Good Burger" show, but it was a skit from All That (1994).
The Samantha Courtyard shopping center was used for the filming location of the Mondo Burger restaurant with extra details added to the facade for the film. The property was 3.52 acres wide.
Although the customers and employees are only ever seen eating the Good Burgers and Good Fries, the menu (which can be seen behind Ed several times) shows that Good Burger also serves Good Chunks, Good Chickwiches, Good Weenies, Good Tacos, Good Chili, and Good Pickles. Their Good Beverage selection includes Coca-Cola products, Good Shakes and Good Coffee. And their dessert menu consists of Good Cookies and Good Pies.
