    Come for the Bibimbap burger – the winner of the Best Burger in America. You’ll be wowed by a beef patty cooked with a sweet and savory sauce, topped with slaw and a slow cooked egg.

    A very interesting Asian fusion burger joint. Come here for the hanoi burger, tilapia tacos, and the yuzu cream puffs.

    two thumbs down. super unhealthy and mediocre food; horrific service and wait time; overpriced and overhyped. a trifecta of low class eating.

    Yeah yeah yeah, the bimbimbop is all the rage here, but for something else yummy and super satisfying, get the fish tacos. So damned good with a big squirt of sriracha. BOOM!

    Bibimbap burger is ridiculous! A must have to try on the menu. The Korean beef taco is really good as well as the curry cream spinach. Yum yum!!

    Try the Bibimbap Burger - Pickled veggies overpowered the yummy runny eggs and quality meat. Still worth a try!

    Food is good but the name is misleading because the hostess asks you to leave after socializing for too long. I didn't realize patrons were not allowed to chat after dinner.

    Already loved the burgers, ribs, and wings but now they've added new items to the menu! The edamame fritters and sloppy ho are a must have!

    Good chicken & coconut tacos. And the fries had a little spice. Thumbs up.

    Diana Martinez · September 8, 2011
  • Ricky C.

    The sauce that comes with the fries is a sake cheese sauce. Not a creamy lemon mustard.

    They can substitute tofu for the meat on the burgers :) Definitely get the kimchi fries!!

    The smoked ribs were excellent--tasted just like my mom's homestyle cooking. The bulgogi burger had a perfect combination of flavors and the fries were amazingly crispy!

    Like it for lunch more and get the bulgogi burger! Course portion is smaller (too small, ramen) under prix fixe dinner. Average quality, didn't match expectations given the chef's fame, price, reviews

    Social Eatz is amazing. Great staff, inventive menu. Menu has changed a bit since my last visit, but the sweet tomato soup is remarkable.
