Korean BBQ has hit the world by storm and Denver is no different. There is just something about cooking your own meat on a tabletop grill and customizing your own food with various colorful side dishes.

To help you choose, here are the top Korean BBQ joints in and around Denver.

Dae Gee

It has three locations around Colorado and is one of the most popular BBQ joints in this list. They serve traditional Korean meats like Galbee and Beef Bulgogi that are marinated in Dae Gee’s secret marinate. Like most Korean BBQ joints, you get to cook your meat on table-side grills.

Seoul BBQ

This Aurora joint is not as traditional as it mixes Korean BBQ and Japanese favorite, sushi. Aside from the great meats and sushi, there are other favorite Korean fares. Try their complimentary bancha, which are several small dishes that give you a glimpse of traditional Korean food.

Shin Myung Gwan

If you are missing local favorite, Sae Jong Kwan, then let us ease the pain a bit. Shin Myung Gwan, the Korean BBQ joint that replaced it does not disappoint. They have the traditional banchan to start you over before you dig in for their powerfully marinated meats. Aside from a table grill, you also get bubbling hot pots for a different take on Korean meats and dishes.
