    You get that puffy egg dish on the house. Side dishes are huge and plentiful. Everything's delicious.

    Han Il Kwan's meat is the most tender. It's still worth it at $30 for the quality and experience, which make it a definite step above the others on this list. Read more

    Snag a table with a grill and prepare to get the meat sweats — you have to order at least two massive plates of meat to be grilled, but the gluttony is worth it. Plan on washing it all down with soju. Read more

    The most authentic Korean BBQ restaurant in SF (with the prices to match). It's not a bad deal if you go with a large group with all of the sides and free add-ons ("service"). Get the galbi!

    Huge bibimbap lunch for two: $25. Clean, insane value, great service, nice interior. Best Korean in the avenues, imho

    Incredible Korean BBQ. The marinated spicy beef was especially good. The plates are huge - they recommend one per person, but 3 for 5 is plenty.

    If you're thinking about soup for a cold night, try one of their hot stone bibimbap dishes. Stays hot/warm for the entire meal. Also be sure to add some red chili paste and stir it all together :)

    I can get full just by eating the free stuff: 8 side dishes, tofu soup or steamed egg, rice, and dessert

    Minimum of two BBQ meat choices to cook your own. 2 is enough to feed a group of three along with unlimited ban-chan and tea.

    Generous portions are to be had at this Korean barbecue restaurant. We recommend the spicy bulgogi, spicy pork, and marinated octopus.

    The bulgogi BBQ is sweet and tender and delicious. Bring friends or take it home with you though, it's a ton of food.

    call ahead to see if they have a tour group coming - if they do, they won't be able to serve other parties for a while.

    Always get the BBQ. Despite the presumable deliciousness of the pork belly, the beef and marinated pork options are the standouts.
