I’m pretty critical when it comes to Asian food so says my foodie friend but this place is good. Not authentically one type of Asian cuisine but one of the best fusion places in the area

Pretty good Korean bbq, got the steak and pork belly bowls with veggies instead or rice. Good flavor. Seems mostly like a takeout joint, outdoor seating but all the orders are given in a bag.

Been eating here for several years. After location change and COVID19 - They have changed quite a bit... mostly good changes (still a little sour about loosing my two favorite dishes). But one thing is for sure - the food is always GREAT tasting. The most common way to eat here is for take out - although they do have a few outdoor tables. Employees are nice and helpful- and they consistently get the order correct. You can never go wrong with the burnt end nachos or any of the sandwiches. Their sweet potato fries are amazing. Well worth a try if you are in the neighborhood.

A go-to fast casual spot for us. Consistent quality and service. Amazing flavors and variety, something for everyone - love the concept. Note: no indoor dining, but there are some tables outdoors facing the parking lot. The greenery is a nice touch. If cold or rainy we will do takeout.

This is an awesome restaurant!! I think it’s one of the biggest and most interesting menus I’ve seen. Most menu items look delicious. We’ve been a few times, ordered totally differently each time and never eaten anything that wasn’t great. I’ll be interested to see what it’s like when they open up the inside since the only downside now is sort of feeling like you’re eating in a parking lot (which is still pretty pleasant if the weather is good). Highly recommend this totally tasty spot.

Quaint and quirky, with excellent smiling service and outdoor seating. Food was delicious and plenty. Locating this place might be tricky. Had good experience, will revisit again and recommend. Good job folks.

The food was outstanding. I've never eaten a sandwich so quickly. The fries and dipping sauce were excellent. The peach shake was homemade and tasty, but maybe a little chunky for my taste. The service was friendly and fast. The only thing that could be improved is the amount of flies around the outdoor seating; maybe some traps or other preventative measures would help. Definitely will still be going back many times

The Blackberry Cobbler shake was delicious. It was fairly simple but made well. The Ko'jangles fries could be considered mandatory. They were perfect. My spicy tofu bowl was pretty good. It definitely wasn't spicy. I would try something different next time. The food seemed a bit overpriced. The only seating available is the metal patio furniture on the sidewalk in front of the building.

KoKyu - this was interesting! I'd love to know more about how this place came to be. First, there is no indoor seating - sit outside or takeaway. Second, you read the menu and order from your phone, but people are still there to help and serve you. And everyone is nice, helpfully, and genuinely down to earth. The food was awesome! Thai chop chop was crunchy and full of fresh flavors - cilantro, mint, and the kimchi-lime vinaigrette - pallet cleanser. The Baht Mi hit all the right elements - bread that crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, a little heat, melt in your mouth short rib, pickled veg. to cut thru the fat. The side of kimchi daikon is a great addition to add texture and acid - another pallet cleanser. The iced horchata had great flavor - I would have preferred a texture that is less grainy from the ice. It was close to slushy texture and that would have been ideal - so would have been a shot of dark rum in the mix 😅. Oh, and you get one free refill on the iced drinks! Selection of beers on draft are diverse and reasonably priced. $13 for a 55 oz. pitcher of Paulaner Hefe - if someone else was with me, sign me up. There is an even wider variety of cans/bottles - the world is your oyster at this place! Feel like wine, they've got you covered too. NA options - no problem, my friend. As the Arnold would say, I'll be back.

Burnt end Nachos were so amazing! Definitely enough for 2 people. Came with large size of queso. Tables outside were so nice and the staff were very friendly.
