    KyoChon wings were really good. Got the half and half where 10 wings were garlic and 10 wings were spicy. The spicy wings were really good and really spicy. If you can't handle spice, don't get it

    Wings have less breading than other places. The hot and sweet is decently spicy and flavorful while the soy garlic is blander than what I'm used to but somehow go well together. Wedges are a must!

    I was pleasantly surprised. The spicy chicken wings are actually spicy! Whenever I get Korean fried chicken I always get all spicy coz the other favors just taste bland to me. Great dining experience!

    Bonchon or KyoChon? It's Kyochon for me cuz the wings here can be very spicy - just how I like 'em. Bonchon can't reach this level of spiciness. When I want hot wings I want 'em HOT!!!!

    Hands down better than Bon chon or mad for chicken. The sal sal chicken salad with mango dressing is remarkably good. Cant go wrong with signature wings soy garlic style.

    Try all the wings. Sweet and got are spicy, possibly too spicy for most but sooooo good. They'll warn you. Listen to them and order them anyway.

    Nowhere near as good (or as cool) as BonChon Chicken, but a decent alternative if it's too crowded or the wait time is too long. This place is good for groups, there is a ton of seating upstairs!

    the Garlic Soy Sauce wings were awesome. I don't know if its for just that kind or all but if you get "hot sauce on the side" BEWARE! For spice heads only. Flavorfull tho.

    While Bonchon soy garlic fries chicken wings is better than KyoChon's, I would choose KyoChon's grilled soy garlic wings anytime! I would go back for this...

    Bon Chon Chicken competitor here! I would say Kyo Chon is equal in terms of quality, with a variety of different flavors to differentiate themselves.

    Got the grilled chicken salad which had quality ingredients & very tasty dressing, but amounted to a $11 appetizer for me. Grabbed cart food afterwards. Throw a piece of bread on the side or something

    The Korean fried chicken wings can carry a spicy kick. Be prepared to wait a little--these wings take time.

    Wow, this place is way better than BonChon! More flavorful and spicier. One big con: the service is lousy and the wait is a bit longer (than BonChon). Anyways, it's the food that counts, right? :)

    Rating: 3 Nice spicy sauce with a good kick. The wings were a little smalleaning there was not a lot of meat. Maybe not amazing for the price. Good for casual pickup of chicken.

    Wings were very crispy and tender. I enjoyed the spicy wings (WARNING: Pretty dang spicy) and the garlic wings but overall it was just alright. I still prefer Bon Chon.

    When you go in there is no one to tell you that upstairs is different to downstairs. If you want to sit go up for service at the table. If you want to stand order at the counter downstairs.
