Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent selection of BBQ items, great service provided from the entire staff and left completely satisfied with my meal. KOBQ had a really simple menu where you could choose from two buffet items and their other dishes were just as good. Highly recommend and would...come back!More

Our family LOVED this place - really fun to cook our meat! The thin sliced brisket was out of this world! We loved the sauces, sides, and the drinks. The service was super friendly and helpful. Honestly this was the best Korean BBQ we’ve had...and we’ve tried several in the US.More

Boy, this is a tough one. The food here was pretty darn incredible. Every - single - item was delicious. The service was impeccable, and the price was completely within reason. But I have to have comfortable seating, decent lighting, and a pleasant atmosphere. This...place was like eating at an American fast food joint with hard seating and bright florescent lighting. The kind of place that wants you to eat and leave. Literally made me uncomfortable. I did see outside seating on a kind of deck, so if I go back, I'll probably go there.More

We speak English and got a server that was training and did not speak any English. There was another server trying to help but I definitely think there was miscommunication and we received below standard in service according to the reviews. We were also told...we could not order the BBQ because it was an hour before close and they could not guarantee extra meat. I said it was ok because it was an hour before closing and we made reservations so we would still like to order the BBQ. In my mind we would not be ordering a ton of meat anyways. We ordered 2 Korean Corn Dogs (skip those unless you want to just try something unusual) and one Korean BBQ and an order of Beef Bigoli Tacos (which were fantastic). We thought we would just share between the 3 of us. Unfortunately it was not explained that we would be charged for 3 Korean BBQ's and 2 other dishes. So our bill was more expensive then we expected. So now we have WAY TOO MUCH food and cant even begin to finish the meat that we did cook or cook the meat we did not cook. So we asked for a to go box. And was told they were not allowed. I can understand you do not want to encourage people to order extra meat for take home but in this case--all the food got thrown away. We really did not get to enjoy much of it because we got full on the corn dogs and the tacos. I really hated so much food got thrown away that we PAID for. It was not like I did not pay for 5 dishes and was not allowed to take any of it home. I felt like the service was way below the reviews and our table was SOOO crowded with dishes everywhere. The food tasted fantastic I just feel like we did not get to enjoy the experience especially for Christmas Eve.More

We love bbq's and were not dissapointed at all after our visit at KOBQ! The food and sides were tasty and the owner and staff very friendly and helpful. We sat outside and had the signature bbq buffet and some (very well priced) beers. It...was a lovely evening, we will visit again soon!More
