Have you tried the all-you-can-eat menu at Star BBQ?

When was the last time you went to Star BBQ? Admittedly, another Korean restaurant is more frequently in my rotation, but that is about to change. Star BBQ, in Savoy, is delicious. And yes, there is an all-you-can-eat menu ($34.99 adults; $15.99 ages 7-15). When I was there I did not select that option, but it sounds like a fun thing to do with some very hungry friends.

On my visit, I ordered fried pork dumplings, dolsot kimchi bulgogi, and my spouse ordered chicken ramen. All were excellent. The banchan was equally delicious. 

I’m looking forward to going back with some friends to grill some meats, and maybe even take advantage of the all-you-can-eat option.
