Been living in Kaohsiung for six months and this is where I come when I crave a burger like back home in the States. Beef has that grilled American flavor I can't seem to find anywhere else... It is a little pricey for Taiwan but it's worth it if you're in the mood.

It's american Mexican and Asian and Italian mixed. The owner of this chain owns other chains in the city. The food is great I enjoy eating here a lot. Good atmosphere and large to fit a lot of people. Great food always had a good time there

There is limited parking in front on the restaurant. The restaurant has additional validated parking on a side street. The restaurant is very large and has an extensive menu.
