Homer: The toilet recommended a place called Americatown.
Lisa: Dad, we didn’t come halfway around the world to eat at Americatown.
Marge: I’d like to see the Japanese take on the club sandwich. I bet it’s smaller and more efficient.

Tonight, on Eye on Springfield…Americatown Restaurant! In honor of July 4 I’m featuring the most American of restaurants with a menu that includes:
- Coleslaw (10,000 Yen)
- Club Sandwich (smaller and more efficient)
- Nothing even remotely Japanese
Americantown delivers on what it promises, a thoroughly American meal as filtered through Japanese culture. My biggest complaint about the restaurant (besides that they sit the Simpsons in Taxachusetts) is that they don’t sell any square watermelons. I’m tired with fumbling with round fruit!
