Cho Sun Ok Restaurant

The first sign that this restaurant is quality is the fact that it is filled with people speaking Korean at every table. However don't be intimidated; the staff gets enough pilgrims from other cultures that they are happy to make your experience easy. The first time me and my friends went, our matronly host/waitress not only flipped the food on our grill for us, but then personally placed it on each one of our plates and checked that we had enough. Dishes that you need to order are the bulgogi (pardon the spelling) and the seafood pancake. I'm not a huge fan of their fried rice, but you can get a rice dish that's made on the grill, and that is another one worth ordering, though I don't know the name. Atmosphere is fun and crowded; be warned that you should not wear anything too difficult to wash as you leave smelling a little of Korean food. Bring a bottle, a group of friends (4-6 people is ideal for this place), and enjoy a great meal for a low price!!

This place rocks. Eat well and BYOB. Dress in layers in the fall and winter because you'll stand outside waiting in line for a table, then you'll take layers off because of the grills at the table and the small room. Service is fast and not the friendliest if you don't know what's going on, but they are totally slammed. Also, you will smell like the oil everything is cooked in by the time you leave, and it stays for the night so plan your evenings events accordingly. Enjoy!

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Food was excellent and the servings were huge!

The food is amazing - just like my mom's home cooking. But the reasonable price with great food always comes with big crowds. The crowd makes the waitresses rush and therefore, the service is not so great. Don't expect to sit there and chat away.
