It's not often that a chip shop goes viral but lots of people are asking what is Binley Mega Chippy after the eatery sparked talk on TikTok.

Viral TikTok trends like the TikTok jean hack, or the safety feature all parents need to know spread over the internet fast and now there's a clip that once you've listened to it, you'll struggle to get it out of your head.

What is Binley Mega Chippy?

Binley Mega Chippy is a fish and chip shop located in a Coventry suburb that sells everything you'd expect from a tradition chippy plus more including Kebabs, chicken, burgers and Pukka pies.

The eatery has a 4.5 star rating on Google and approximately 697 reviews at the time of writing this. And up until this week, only locals had probably heard of it. And that's because it was just a regular fish and chip shop located in the Midlands.


Binley Mega Chippy is trending on TikTok after a song was shared on the social media platform. The fast-food premises appears to have caught the eye of social media users back in April when one user posted a video featuring a compilation of takeaways across the country and it was featured as one of these.

Since then a series of videos and memes have been popping up on users timelines with everyone watching, sharing and even paying the place a visit to see what all the fuss is about.

Among some of the funny memes include posting questions such as what would Winston Churchill have ordered from there - and there's a catchy tribute song that has collected more than 700,000 views.

And TikTok users all over the world are wondering why it's trending.

One user posted, "I don’t know how this has ended up all over my FYP when I live in Australia"

And the chippy itself is super thankful for all the interest it's sparked. It commented, "Thank you for the support!"

There's no wonder as one chippy local revealed, "I live 3 min from there and it’s so busy."

Meanwhile some users are begging for the song to be made into a sound.

Another added, "New ringtone. thanks."

Good luck with getting that out of your head any time soon!
