Best Korean BBQ in San Diego, CA

A Korean BBQ meal isn’t just about the food – it’s about the whole experience of cooking your food right in front of you. All-you-can-eat joints typically offer several menu levels, with the more expensive options offering a bigger selection of meat and seafood. Other restaurants have you order à la carte and typically have higher quality meat. Here’s a list of my favorite spots for Korean BBQ around town!

    There’s a reason the lines at Manna BBQ are always out the door. The meat quality here is quite good, especially considering that it’s an all-you-can-eat restaurant. Favorite items here are the jumooluk (boneless short rib cubes), beef rib finger meat, and pork belly. Don’t forget the sides, either – the steamed egg here is a must-order!

    At Kogi, the Happy Hour menu (available after 9PM) is only $17.95 for all-you-can-eat! The meat here is sliced to order, so you’ll never get frozen slices which don’t cook as evenly. Beef belly is a unique offering here and definitely worth trying. In addition, they offer some pretty awesome sides, including corn with melted cheese, kimchi pancake, and spicy bean paste soup.

    Taegukgi stands out from other all-you-can-eat KBBQ restaurants with its quality service and lively, fun dining atmosphere. There is a huge projector and a number of TVs all over the restaurant so that you can catch your favorite sports game while enjoying Korean BBQ! If you’re here for a party, order one of their beer towers, complete with color-changing lights and dry ice! My favorite meats here are the thin-sliced pork belly and pork neck meat, the latter being a unique offering here.

    There’s no all-you-can-eat option here at Buga – you order your meats individually, or there are several special combos that offer a good value. I love the thinly-sliced brisket here, which are marbled beautifully. But it’s not just the brisket; the quality of all the meat offered here is simply superb. If you’re feeling like splurging, order a prime ribeye or a prime short rib – your stomach will thank you!
