Restaurant review: Mr. Lee’s Korean Barbeque


On the outside, Mr. Lee’s Barbeque House may not look like the best choice, but the food and service it offers meets customers’ demands and fully satisfies one’s craving for an endless amount of meat.

With an all-you-can-eat serving of marinated chicken, bulgogi and thinly sliced brisket for only $7.99, it’s no coincidence Mr. Lee’s has customers arriving as early as 11 a.m. and showing up until 11 p.m. If you want to avoid a long wait, arrive early. Dinner time rush hour could leave you waiting up to 40 minutes.

Unlimited rice paper, salad, bean sprouts, kimchi, radish, tofu, sweet mashed potatoes and fish cakes are also served with your meat. The servers’ attentiveness is refreshing, and they will have your empty sides, drinks, and meat dishes refilled before you notice you were running out.

“Mr. Lee’s always hits the spot. I come here all the time,” Fullerton College student Johnny Nguyen said. “It’s like eating two meals in one.”

Parties of three or more pay $10 and receive a grill on which to cook their meat, while parties of two will have their meat pre-cooked and served on a round skillet for $7.99 per person.  Mr. Lee’s is located at 12300 South Street in Artesia, 15 minutes away from Disneyland and worth the drive. Take a few friends and enjoy.
