Was here on a Saturday for a late lunch. We ordered a small combo of fried chicken and some french fries. The restaurant was busy, but it was still surprising that we waited more than 30 minutes to get the food after ordering. The Chicken was really really crispy, much better than any average fried chicken place, but the sauce... More

We came here about a year ago and enjoyed our experience almost across the board. Based on this we came here again last week. This most recent experience was not worth the drive to say the least. We live in Towson, so it took about 45 minutes with traffic to get here. Our daughter is 5 and our son is... More

I really enjoy the chicken at Bon chon a few times a year. Not sure my body can handle it any more frequently but it sure is great. The ramen soup will surprise you but it is quite spicy. The kimchi Cole slaw is nice to cool things down. The waitstaff is super friendly and there are a ton of... More

Japchae is delicious but their chicken is addicting! I love hot and spicy food but when I ordered the hot wings, it was too hot for me. So the 2nd time I went I ordered mild chicken wings instead😄.

A friend introduced my husband and I to BonChon a month or so ago. Since then, we've stopped in another 3 or 4 times--occasionally for carry out. If you eat chicken, you must try the Soy Garlic Strips. There is a taste and a crisp to these that is unrivaled. Beyond that, the menu contains a myriad of dishes that... More

The chicken is what makes this place. It is incredibly crispy and tasty. Both flavors are awesome. The rest of the menu is fine but nothing to write home about. If you're looking for a Korean fix, there are much better places nearby. That said, I do usually order the bi bim bop here, and split it with a friend... More

The food and service was fine at this ellicott city branch of the Korean chain. The fire alarm went off without cause, however, and no one there could turn it off. Either a design flaw or lack of training were the cause. Not until the fire department arrived twenty minutes later did it cease. A meal ruined by technical incompetence.

If you love buffalo or other types of wings you will love this place! Although they have a limited menu and only offer two flavors for the wings that is all you need! Both are delicious! I will definitely be back.

A few times a year, I simply need to have bulgogi. BonChon Chicken has really good bulgogi. Yes, I know it's a chicken place; and Yes, the chicken is very good. We had a bunch of wings with the soy/garlic sauce. They were sweet, crunchy and delicious. Easily worth the trip there for the chicken - but I needed a... More
