I tried telling my Swiss boss when I was deployed to the Golan about Swiss Chalet.

She could not get her mind around the fact that it had nothing to do with Switzerland and that other than the name, there was nothing Swiss about the food (it is a rotisserie chicken restaurant).

Then I pointed out the Swiss Forest on the shores of the Sea of Galilee that had nothing to do with Switzerland (it was named for a settler whose last name was Swiss).

And for the record, Harvey's is my favourite burger place.
