Buns and Guns was a fast-food restaurant in Sfeir, a southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon in a Hezbollah controlled area.[1] The restaurant's theme of military decor, fake assault rifles, and camouflage netting, as well as recorded gunfire sounds. The dishes were served with names of "rocket-propelled grenade" (chicken on a skewer) and other names like Kalashnikov, Dragunov, Viper, and B52. Their motto was "A sandwich can kill you."[1]

When last visited[by whom?] in October 2009 the restaurant had been closed. A new fast food restaurant, named 'Shoot', had opened up in its place. According to an employee, the restaurant had been sold a few months before. The theme of the new restaurant had no longer anything to do with guns, but was instead focused on sports, with 'Shoot' referring to a basketball or a football, as seen in the new logo.[citation needed]
