At Sizzle Korean BBQ, your food is cooked right at your table. Gather your friends and family for a new and adventurous dining experience ensuring centuries of classic Korean techniques at a fine dining level. It begins by choosing from a selection of the best local meats, either all beef BBQ choices or all pork BBQ choices (no chicken options) available; then cook it on a traditional Korean grill, right at your table! Immerse yourself with endless Asian spices and unique flavors. For added freshness, enjoy traditional soups and fresh salads – a great accompany to your meal.  Three types of Korean Soju, 3 Korean Wines, 3 Sizzle-Rita’s (Margaritas) as well as a wide assortment of 3 red, 4 white wines and 7 beers were currently available to imbibe with our meal as well. Our team strongly suggests that you try one of their ice milk desserts, the “red bean” is pictured here, as it serves two, looks like snow, and deliciously melts in your mouth.



Our team opted for the Beef BBQ which is comprised of 5 item choices (Brisket or Belly), (Boneless Short Rib or Rib Eye Steak), (Marinated Short Rib or Seasoned Boneless Short Rib), (Thinly Sliced Beef or Outside Skirt Meat), (Kimchi Stew or Soy Bean Stew) from a list of 10 items served with a side dish (soup), salad, and steamed egg augmented by one order of their outstanding Spicy Stir Fried Squid and Korean Dumplings.  Our server was knowledgeable and made recommendations for us.  Forks are available for less adventurous diners.  The “family dining experience” was great fun and communal given the environment’s noise level during prime evening dining hours as well as the number in our party and the size of our tables.
