Eminem’s Restaurant Started as a Pop-Up Restaurant
The rapper’s song “Lose Yourself” famously says, “Her palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms heavy; she’s already got vomit on her sweater, mom’s spaghetti.” The line has been turned into countless memes and videos by fans on the internet.
This isn’t the first time Eminem’s memorable songs have been transformed into dining spots. The pop-culture reference was once a pop-up restaurant.
According to food and wineEminem has embraced this culinary song before: In 2017, he partnered with Detroit restaurant group Union Joints to form a brief Moms Spaghetti pop-up restaurant to promote the release of his album, Revival.
“Then, last year, Mom’s Spaghetti returned (again with the help of Union Joints) with a noble cause: to provide free pasta meals to Detroit health workers in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Not only did the pop-up renewed interest in the rapper’s 2002 hit, but it also raised money for a good cause.
The restaurant will have a permanent home in Detroit

Downtown Detroit will have the first permanent outpost for the “Moms Spaghetti” concept, which opens inside the newly-launched Union Assembly restaurant, also run by Union Joints.
Eminem’s manager Paul Rosenberg said, “We’ve had a lot of fun associating this project with the people at Union Joint, and the response from the fans has been overwhelmingly positive.” “The previous pop-ups were really a test for us to determine if there was excitement for a regularly happening mom’s spaghetti spot that would be open all year round.”
According to Mom’s Spaghetti WebsiteOf course, the menu is limited: Mama’s Spaghetti ($9), Mama’s Spaghetti Meatballs ($12), a’ Spaghetti Sandwich ($11), and then a variety of “pops” or water ($4).
The restaurant is also small. It has limited seating, and orders will be taken at a walk-up window in an alleyway between Union Assembly and The Fillmore.
