The Goldbergs is about the Goldberg family and is based on earlier experiences of the producer Adam F. Goldberg. Even though some parts are very different from his real life, Goldberg did not have a sister, but two brothers, for example, but there are always original recordings in the series, which Goldberg had recorded as a child.
Fortunately, this series was not shot entirely in the studio. Striking locations can actually be seen in real life and not during a studio tour.
The house of the Goldberg family
To be honest, this is quite a big surprise for me: The house really exists. Since there are quite a lot of scenes in front of the house, I was relatively sure that the house only exists in the studio. But no, it’s actually in a residential area in Los Angeles.

One or the other, also the following house might still seem familiar. This is the original house from the pilot episode.
4545 Del Moreno Dr, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Operation Waffle Girl
Also from the pilot episode, the waffle house where Pop’s Adam wants to teach about women. The whole thing is in reality not a waffle house, but a normal American diner.

Driving hours with Barry
The scene of the first episode, in which Barry has driving lessons with Murray and parks the car after a fight at a intersection and finally locks Murray out, is in my opinion one of the funniest scenes of this episode. It wasn’t shot in Los Angeles, but in Monrovia, which is also in Los Angeles County.

The Burger “Drive-In”
Also from the pilot episode: Pops drives with full force over the outside terrace of a burger restaurant and stops in front of the window as if he had driven normally through a drive-in. The scene wasn’t shot in the studio either, but in the middle of L.A. on 1st Street. The store is really called Jim’s Burgers and the ratings are quite good (4 out of 5 stars). A perfect stopover on the Goldbergs tour.
