This restaurant does not present a high profile or appearance, half hidden in a strip mall with very dated deco. However, the service and food were surprisingly fine and tasty. The grill is the old fashion charcoal type and for those who dislike gas BBQ,...More

Dae Jang Keum is a good sized Korean restaurant that serves a wide range of Korean food. They also do have BBQ and do it properly over charcoal at your table. I also like the other dishes they serve. It can get smokey in there...More
