Best Authentic Korean BBQ Restaurants in Buena Park, California

Most people know that Buena Park is the birthplace of the boysenberry but what you may not know is that it's the destination to go to when you have a hankering for authentic Korean BBQ. Sunset Magazine has even proclaimed that our burgeoning Koreatown is better than LA's and the LA Times says that we offer better parking and a diversity of eateries, making Buena Park the new hub for Korean dining in the The OC. From all-you-can-eat fests to upscale, multi-course options, there’s something for every budget and palate. Check out this list of our favorite local Korean BBQ restaurants and bring your appetite!
Meet on grill at Kang Ho Dong in Buena Park, CA
Eight Korean BBQ—The highlight of the Eight Korean BBQ menu is their Combo A which comes with eight flavors of pork belly from curry to black sesame to miso paste. Plentiful enough to share, all of the combos come with mozzarella kimchi fried rice that’s impressively cooked right in front of you.

Mountain—Deep, authentic flavors are the name of the game at Mountain, where all of their menu items are made using rich beef broths and dry fish broths instead of MSG. In business since 1974, you can expect to find plentiful Korean banchan (side dishes) and some of the best porridge in town. An expansive parking lot makes a visit that much easier.
Meet and sides at Kang Ho Dong in Buena Park, CA
Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong—Diners at Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong will find the meat to be of very high quality and the service attentive. Unlike many other Korean BBQs, your server will cook your meat for you to ensure you get the most ideal experience, so you can relax and watch as they toss prime cuts like rib-eye steak and thin-sliced brisket onto the tabletop grill. Thoughtful dipping sauces and sides like mozzarella cheese and corn accompany your meal. Make sure you try the lunchbox fried rice.

Saemaeul Restaurant—Go for a combo to fully experience all that Saemaeul Restaurant has to offer. The short rib and brisket are favorites with the banchan plentiful. The steamed egg is an extra charge but well worth it as it comes with corn on the bottom and cheese on the top.
Meet and Sides at Gangham House in Buena Park, CA

KyungBokKung—Diners love the upscale ambiance at KyungBokKung with several private rooms that you can reserve for special occasions. Meals here are multi-course with appetizers of sashimi, jelly noodles, beef tartare, salad, and more included with your selected meat.

Cham Soot Gol—This all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ spot has a service button on each table so you can keep the meats coming until you are satisfied. The brisket and spicy pork at Cham Soot Gol gets top marks from diners as does the unlimited free soft-serve ice cream that’s offered for dessert (if you have room!).

Bone in broth at Gangham House in Buena Park, CA

Gangham HouseGangnam House offers Korean grilled meats from traditional bulgogi and galbi to dry-aged beef. Located at The Source, Gangham House looks upscale but offers high-end quality meats at reasonable prices. Their hot stone pot beef bibimbap is a winner!

Waco Honey Pig—The kimchi fried rice gets top billing at Waco Honey Pig as does the black pig pork belly. Try the pork belly in rice paper with soybean paste, kimchi, and bean sprouts. You won’t regret it.
