I love Japanese food a lot. After 2 weeks of it I was ready for a burger! This place nails it perfectly. Everything is delicious and tastes just like back home. Bonus is all of the american stuff he's collected...a late 60's ford van, an...authentic Schwinn Stingray just like I had in the 70's, a real hog...just like the biker rode in and stepped off for a burger. Eviltex is also the local hangout for Japanese america-philes. Guys with lowriders...complete with hydraulics...hanging out for burgers. Such a cool place with delicious food. If it were where I live I'd be a well know regular!More

We had the beef burger with cheese and the chicken and avocado burger. Both were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The beef was good but I was expecting a stronger flavour as we were in the Hida beef region. The owners are friendly...and speak good English. Prices are OK. However the service was a bit slow.More

This place was really awesome. Delicious burgers (I had an avo burger and it was great) and amazingly nice staff! Go there if you crave something different than japanase food and something of a really good quality.

Nice interior, good music, super friendly team. And most importantly yuuummmmmmy burgers. We had the grilled chicken and avo as well as a Hamburger and Enchilada with Chicken. And all of us went „wow“ right after the first bite.

Open at lunch time rates it highly already as almost everywhere in Takayama bizarrely closes for lunch Staff super friendly, great English, food more than reasonable, we would have paid more Best find for me was that they were very serious about me being a...Coeliac and were able to serve me with soft tortillas which is new for me in a restaurant 😀 they said beef was a no go but I was able to eat the chicken They also made craicing fruit mojitos - a definite for Coeliacs looking for something tasty and best of all.... Its all served in fantastic dinosaur characters!!More
