Yelp's Favorite Spots for Eating Out in Buena Park

Written by Visit Buena Park

Sometimes you just want to leave the dining decisions to the experts and when you do, Yelp is there for you. These 20 Buena Park restaurants have 4.5 stars or higher ratings on Yelp so you can feel good that your night on the town is going to be filled with tasty food and good service. From crispy Korean chicken to coconut iced lattes to all-day breakfast sandwiches, the Yelpers have spoken. Check out their Buena Park favorites below!

Misoolkwan OC: Topping the list with 5/5 stars is this spot that serves up Korean food with a fun club-like vibe. The stir-fried pork belly gets top marks as does the rosti (a crispy fried potato pancake that's topped with an egg). Bring all your friends so you can order the whole menu.

Miss Shabu: The Korean hot pot experience is part dining and part performance. They get top marks to Miss Shabu for its attentive service, fresh veggies, and premium meats. Don't forget to save room at the end for the porridge!

Pelicana Chicken: When the Korean chicken wing cravings hit, locals head to Pelicana Chicken where you can get them bone-in or boneless, spicy or garlic-forward. Yelpers especially love how Pelicana can maintain that ultra-crispy chicken even after adding the sauce.

India House Restaurant: This family-owned restaurant is a favorite of vegan and gluten-free diners as well as those who are craving the rich flavors of Indian cuisine. You'll definitely want to add the saag paneer and chicken tikka masala to your order as they are favorites.

Prime & Beyond California: When you want a high-quality steak that's cooked to your specifications, Yelp recommends Prime & Beyond as the top steakhouse in Buena Park. The tomahawk steak is the Instagrammable favorite (and you'll get leftovers for days), or go for the lamb chops that are consistently tender and flavorful.

Flippoly: Not only do the Yelpers love the egg sandwiches at Flippoly but they are all over TikTok (so you know they must be legit). Swing by to grab some of their favorites like the ham and cheese sandwich and the kimchi bulgogi sandwich. Then head to the photo booth for your ultra-pink photo opp with the goods before you leave.

M Korean BBQ: In a city full of Korean BBQ options, Magal OC stands out with its top-notch service and large portions that will definitely leave you satisfied. They do all the cooking for you so you can just sit back and wait for the deliciousness to be served up.

Van Dyke Coffee Roasters: Not your everyday coffee shop, Van Dyke serves up fresh-made coffee for each customer that's made with the highest quality beans. Yelp reviewers love all the special flavors like the iced coconut latte and banana latte. But really, it's the oversized cookies and friendly service that give it such high marks.

Santa Maria BBQ: There's a reason that this spot gets top billing for BBQ in Buena Park and it's the enormous portions and high-quality meat. Go for the sampler plate if you don't know what to order, or the pulled pork that is definitely a Yelp favorite.

Kitakata Ramen: With 60 locations throughout Japan, you know you're getting authentic ramen from this Buena Park spot. The green chili shio ramen and spicy miso ramen get top marks in Yelp reviews (if you are up for the heat) and the juicy fried chicken is not to be missed.

Uncle Fung Borneo Eatery: Visitors to Uncle Fung lavish praise on this Indonesian food hot spot for its quick service and flavorful dishes. Yelpers recommend you start off with the Laksa Mee as its deeply flavorful broth is what you crave. The roti prata and chicken satay are other top sellers.

The Cauldron: It's really the vibe that has Yelpers raving about this French-inspired cocktail bar. With fun options like the Knotty Kid, a lemon and vodka martini that's poured over boysenberry cotton candy, you'll be in for a real treat. Shareable plates like the croque monsieur sliders are frequently raved about in Yelp reviews.

Porto's Bakery & Café: Rated as Yelp's #1 Restaurant in the Country for 2016, it's no surprise why Yelp reviewers consistently love Porto's. The expansive sweets case is full of fresh fruit-topped pastries just waiting to be devoured and the traditional Cuban fare is full of flavor. You can even take home some frozen pastries to enjoy at a later time!

Wagyu Meat and Grill: This affordable spot tops the list for simple eats that are sure to satisfy. The Wagyu rice bowl is a Yelp favorite as it is tender and full of flavor. You can even take home the marinated meat to cook up for your next family celebration.

Chubbee Monkee: Grange Hall is home to this hidden gem that gets 4.5 stars on Yelp. The garlic shrimp and orange chicken are top picks, as are the lobster noodles and cheeseburger egg rolls.

Eggslice: All-day breakfast sandwiches bring top marks for Eggslice but it's really their homemade Chilli Jam that sets these sandwiches apart. From the standard egg and cheese to the chicken katsu egg sandwich, all ingredients are local and sandwiches are made fresh to order.

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong: It's no surprise to find another Korean BBQ spot included on this list of top spots. Yelpers give the quality of their meats high marks as well as their attentive service.

Súp Noodle Bar: With over 2400 reviews on Yelp, you know this one is a winner. Go for one of the many pho options or opt for the top-rated Lomo Saltado. This unique dish has French fries topped with tomatoes, charred sweet red onions, white wine soy, and homemade (spicy!) aji verde aioli, that's served with steamed white rice and filet mignon.

Yang's Braised Chicken Rice: With only one item on the menu, you know it's gotta be good. Located in The Source, Yang's gives you a scoop of rice with a bowl of braised chicken at the spice level you like. We know you'll rate it five stars when you try it.

California Pita Grill: Traditional Mediterranean fare is on the menu at California Pita Grill. Go for the kabob plate or mixed grill plate if you want to try the sides, or the gyro sandwich if you're eating on the go.
