Grill delicious meats to your heart’s content at our picks for the top Korean BBQ restaurants in Greater Houston.

Korean BBQ is a great dining experience, where plates of uncooked meat, side dishes and other tasty complements are brought to your table and each diner gets to grill their food to perfection—or you can designate someone as the table’s cook, so everyone else can focus on the tasty eats.

Are you a newbie to the KBBQ experience? Not to worry as most places on this list follow the same, familiar procedure and friendly servers are no strangers to helping first-timers get up to speed with their grilling—plus, some can even help cook it for you.
