"A sandwich can kill you."
That's the motto for Buns & Guns, a fast-food restaurant that was located in Sfeir, a southern suburb of Beirut. This military-themed restaurant was filled with military decors such as fake assault rifles, and camouflage netting, as well as recorded helicopter and gunfire sounds.

Manager Yussef Ibrahim says that the theme reflects the mood of the city during Lebanon's 2006 war with Israel, and that while some patrons may find it disturbing, most are amused. You can order yourself an M16 Carbine meat sandwich, a Mortar burger or a Terrorist meal (which happens to be vegetarian). Dishes were also served with names of weapons like Kalashnikov and Dragunov.

According to Wikipedia, the restaurant was found to be closed when last visited in October 2009. 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 ('Shoot' referring to a basket ball or a football, as seen in the new logo).
