“Stunning Korean BBQ”
Review of Pro Samgyubsal

From the other good reviews my expectations were high, but this place surpassed them. The menu is limited. There are a few noodle dishes as alternatives. But you go here for Korean barbecue. You choose the meat (various varieties of pork or beef). It is brought to the grill at your table and cooked by the helpful staff you are surrounded with a huge array of side dishes and if you run out of any they are replaced by attentive staff at no extra charge. The quality of the meat is superb. A first class experience in every way.

I am a Korean and definitely grew up with KBBQ. We got there around 4:45-5 pm a little after they opened. Holy crap they were already at half capacity and within a half hour after getting seated, the whole restaurant was filled. I would recommend getting there right as it opens or expecting a wait. Since they were so busy on weekends they said that they would not be able to cook/help out, which is understandable and something to note for people that are not accustomed to KBBQ and cooking for themselves. Otherwise, the signature pork belly and kalbi were stellar and we did end up ordering more meat after our initial order. I have not had something of this quality of all the KBBQ places I have been in apart from Korea itself.

We went on a Friday night. It was pretty packed. We waited to be seated for about 20 mins. It's so worth it. The sides were all very flavorful and refill was pretty prompt. The meats were of good quality. Reasonable price.

I felt like in Seoul. It was after 10 p.m., and the place was swarming. Very nice staff, and great food. Can't wait to visit them again.

Better quality, good service at reasonable price. We had both thick and sliced cuts. The sides(banchan) and miso soup were all delicious. About $20 / person without drinks.
