Used to go here all the time growing up in the area. So when I am visiting my family this is the place that brings back a lot of memories. Kalbi, BBQ Chicken and Meat Jun are my favorites. This is an equivalent of a...More

We came here with my cousins and got bbq beef sandwiches, but it wasn't traditional with sauce. It was more what I call teriyaki of sorts. It had lots of meat, lettuce, tomato and mayo. They are around $5 a piece and very filling. If...More

We stopped by here and weren't sure what to expect; it's the definition of a whole in the wall. The food was awesome. We had a combo plate and some bbq chicken. The chicken was a little fatty, but it was all delicious!

Fantastic food, good location and cheap. Most plates are in the $7-13 range, lots of food. They do have some table but this is mainly a take out place.

Soon's is a hidden gem in the Salt Lake shopping center but its worth going to. Not much there but a window to order from but you probably want to eat it in the privacy of your home or car so you don't embarrass yourself...More

When you go by Soon's during lunch or dinner time there is always a lot of smoke and a long line. The wait between ordering and picking up your meal is well worth it. The food is really good and you get good value. That...More
