L.A. Cameo: Max's Glendale as "Fresh Off the Boat's" Cattleman's Ranch

Fresh off Boat

On ABC's new comedy "Fresh of the Boat," young Eddie Huang's family moves to 1994 Orlando in order to open a steak restaurant called "Cattleman's Ranch."

In real life, the establishing shot is actually the Glendale location of fried chicken chain Max's of Manila. Here's our 2006 Rate-A-Restaurant review of Max's, which is a staple for big family gatherings.

Thanks for writing this article. I had a feeling it was a restaurant in real-life, but I would have have had a clue where to look. The address would be 313 W. Broadway, Glendale, CA 91204.

I've been writing articles about filming locations on my blog - - in addition to all I have on my Ghostbusters site -

I'm gonna have to visit your site more often to see what latest locations you've ID'ed. Please add in the street addresses in future articles.
