Good Burger manager Mr. Bailey is played by Dan Schneider, who wrote the screenplay and also created many Nickelodeon shows, including All That which also starred Keenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, which featured the recurring skit on which the film is based.
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."
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.
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.
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.
To date, the only Nickelodeon Theatrical 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).
In 1999, Steve Holland had wrote a script called Good Burger 2 Go, a sequel to the original film that had Ed and Dexter uncovering a scandal when a British conglomerate buys the Good Burger restaurant. Paramount had turned down the script for unknown reasons, but the script was made into a paperback novel.
The DVD for the film has no special features, which have been requested by many fans of the film. Two fans, that being Mason Morgan & Ryun Jones had made a message on their show The Marvelous M Show (2011), asking Nickelodeon and Paramount to make a 20th Anniversary Blu-Ray Disc by summer of 2017 featuring the making of special "On the Job with Kenan & Kel", the music video to Ed's song "We're All Dudes", some deleted scenes, and Bumpers from "Nick in the Afternoon" featuring the premiere of the film. Paramount and Nickelodeon has yet to respond to any of these requests.
Kenan Thompson told The Morning Call that at one point, there was virtually two-thousand pounds of meat on the set; some of it being old. "It was so nasty. Some of the burgers would stay out there for a long time. I felt sorry for the extras who had to eat them with cold, clammy fries. But on screen, those burgers look good."
