You'd LOVE the radio and TV commercials featuring exaggerated bogan accents and didgeridoos.
It also has a rep for being total shit.

1. I particularly liked the Alice Springs Chicken Quesadilla. Most (if not all) of the inhabitants of Alice Springs would never have seen a quesadilla and wouldn't know how to pronounce quesadilla, let alone recognise it as a signature dish.
2. It is not called a shrimp. It is called a prawn. We do not eat shrimp.
3. A side dish of sweet potato with honey and brown sugar. Um, just no. We do not adulterate perfectly good vegetables with sugary nonsense and then pretend it is food.
4. Choice of cheese for the cheeseburger = American, Swiss or provolone. I think not.
5. Grilled chicken sandwich with buffalo sauce and ranch. A sandwich is something squished between two pieces of sliced bread. An Aussie sandwich does not contain buffalo sauce because we do not even know what that is. Ranch dressing is something that Mr Paul Newman shoved in a bottle and exported to us.
6. There is a salad containing cinnamon pecans. Cinnamon is to be combined with sugar and sprinkled on hot fried donuts. It does not belong in a salad. Neither do pecans, cinnamon or not.
7. And finally, there is not a single burger with the mandatory Aussie addition of a slice of beetroot. A true Aussie burger would contain the following: a meat pattie, a pile of iceberg lettuce, a few slices of tomato, some fried onion, a slice of cheddar cheese (optional), a fried egg, beetroot and a generous squirt of tomato sauce (not ketchup).
