Korean BBQ is always fun and this place does it well. Meat portions are a good size and the banchan are all delicious. Parking can sometimes be difficult in this area.

After reading the many positive reviews, my family decided that Chicago Kalbi would be a fun night out. It truly exceeded my expectations. The staff were friendly and solicitous throughout the meal. Our kids (who can be pretty picky eaters) had an absolute blast cooking...More
