This building was located at 701 112th Ave. NE in the late 1960s. This restaurant was popular in some parts of the United States, but it did not seem to last long in Bellevue.
It featured roast beef sandwiches and ribs and had a Jack Daniels sauce. Most of the KFC beef units were opened by chicken franchises that made them part of their KFC restaurants. A few freestanding buildings like this one also were built.
