A research instrument was developed to identify attitudes of Korean college students towards quick-service, family-style, and fine dining restaurants. Of the 350 questionnaires distributed, 292 (83%) were returned and usable. Respondents had the most positive attitudes toward fine dining restaurants, followed by quick service and family-style restaurants. Family-style restaurants, however, were most frequently patronized by respondents for their regular meals. “Good taste” was found to be the determining factor in selecting a restaurant for regular meals among Korean college students. Implications for Korean restaurant operators, researchers, and restaurant operators in other countries were provided.
