    Depending on the size of your group; sometimes it's better to go with a combo rather than the all-you-can-eat deal.

    Have you ever eaten and gotten drunk in an exercise class? Cause that's what this feels like. In a good way.

    $17.99 all you can eat with 14 different types of meat. The pancake is delicious and you get to eat with the music blasting and the sports games playing.

    Don't wear nice clothes, it'll be stained with the smell of KBBQ. Also, try their pancake. It's delicious :)

    Some of the best Korean Bbq I've ever had! Loved all the pickled sides. But be prepared to come out of the place smelling like smoke.

    HORRIBLE service! We weren't finished with our food and waitress named Tina brings us our bill and basically asks us to leave because it's 'busy.' I also found the waitresses discriminating too.

    They were really busy when I went. Didn't handle large parties well -- But the food was bomb, so if you're in a small group... or if you're a large group and don't mind waiting. MUST GO.

    Speak slowly and clearly when ordering your meat. Otherwise, you may end up with a plate of intestines that you didn't order and are now forced to hide in the salad bowl.

    Make sure you bring your body spray or cologne with you. Because you're gonna be feasting like no other for quite some time. The bulgogi and the beef are... Ugh, so bomb.

    If they "accidentally" bring out meat you didn't order, decline it unless you were gonna get it anyway. It's their way of getting you to fill up before you can order the more costly (for them) items.
