Kenny Rogers Roasters

Kenny Rogers began his Roasters restaurant chain in 1991. Within four years the restaurant had locations in Asia, including Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and other countries.

Sadly, there is only one Kenny Rogers Roasters location in the United States, at the Ontario Mills Mall in Ontario, California, not too far from my home town of Colton.

I now live in Cagayan de Oro in Mindanao, in the province of Misamis Oriental, the Philippines. We don't have a Roasters. The nearest one is about twelve hours south (by bus) in Davao. Besides the Philippines, they still have locations in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. They are also in Brunei and China and will soon be in Dubai and Australia.

  1. I MISS THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!! SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!

    Back in college, in 2001 or 2002, I used to go to Kenny Roger's Roasters in Lakewood, CA multiple times per week. For only 4.99, I got their DELICIOUS wood fired lemon herb chicken, and they REALLY piled on the sides - I usually got buttered spinach and the mashed sweet potato.

    The Corn Bread was nice and toasty and had corn kernels in it.

    I miss that place so much. It was an addiction.
