You NEED a Betty Cooper Shake in your life.

Die-hard Riverdale fans will surely recognise the gang's favourite hang out spot, Pop's Diner. Since the show's pilot, the charming eatery has been the epicentre of some of Riverdale's most dramatic scenes and plot points.

As season 2 hits our screens, we're thinking more and more about what makes the show tick. At the heart of Riverdale's iconic 'Anytown' vibe is the restaurant that many fans love to visit IRL. 

Fun fact: for the pilot episode, the scenes at Pop's diner were filmed at an actual diner in Mission, British Columbia. 

The diner has been around for a while, opening in 1956 as the "Hi-Lite Burger Bar". It soon became "Rocko's" and, eventually, Pop's Diner for a bit.

After the pilot episode, Riverdale built their own official Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe.

That hasn't stopped people from visiting the original location.

It definitely gives off that Riverdale vibe. Holy neon.

The best part? You can even order from a menu that features some Archie comics realness.

We're 100% positive that we'd be distracted the whole time thinking Jughead was going to walk through the doors any second.

But, when it comes to the actual dining experience, it seems that the milkshakes are everyone's favourite.

But we're lowkey sweating at these sweet potato fries.

There ya go, kids. If you're ever near Lougheed highway in Mission, British Colombia, be sure to get your lives in the original Pop's Diner.
