Eminem Serves Fans As He Opens His Mom's Spaghetti Restaurant

Eminem has officially opened his Mom's Spaghetti restaurant in Detroit and the rapper took orders in person for the big day.

Real name Marshall Mathers, the legendary artist stood in the takeaway window while fans were able to walk by and pick up a pot of spaghetti.

The window revealed you can get an order of his delicious spaghetti for $9 or spend an extra three or five bucks to get meatballs or vegan balls added.

There were hundreds of people who patiently waited in lines that stretched across several blocks. One woman even said she burst into tears when she got to see and hug Eminem.

It seems like Em was happy for loads of fans to get up close and personal with him, with one bloke uploading a selfie of them with his food.

Brendan Linden wrote alongside the image 'Ready to die now'.

Eminem revealed last week that he was choosing his home city to launch his first official restaurant.

In case you don't know, 'Mom's Spaghetti' is a reference to a lyric in Eminem's 2002 single 'Lose Yourself', in which he raps: "His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy / There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti."

The news was shared via a 30-second commercial, which showed Eminem bizarrely vomiting out of a Chinese takeout container with 'Mom's Spaghetti' branding across it.

The restaurant is part of a partnership with Union Joints restaurant group, which has previously worked with the rapper on his Mom's Spaghetti pop-ups.

Em's manager Paul Rosenberg said in statement: "We've had a lot of fun putting this project together with the folks at Union Joints, and the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive.

"The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine whether there was enthusiasm for a regularly-occurring Mom's Spaghetti spot that would be open all year long.

"We are really pleased to announce the arrival of the walk-up restaurant and adjacent upstairs store, called The Trailer, where fans can experience a uniquely-curated environment and obtain merch and other items from Eminem and his new pasta operation."

Last year, Eminem donated some of his famous Spaghetti to frontline workers during the Coronavirus pandemic.

And in 2018, he opened a pop-up at the Coachella music festival, with fans going wild for the stuff. At the time, one festival-goer said they would be going back the following year if Mom's was.

They told the LA Times: "I want to know if it's just this year because he's playing, or if they will be here next year too. I bet the spaghetti is good."
