Ms. Kim is an incredible lady! She's retired from being the food manager at Fort Hood. She's taken many courses and training on food preparation. She's been all over the world in her military career. Now that she's retired, this is her "fun job" and she runs it all on her own as a one-woman shop.

She knows that you're new the second you step in the building and she'll have samples for you to try within a few minutes. We were offered the chicken jambalaya, brisket, and BBQ chicken. Later (after we were already eating our meal) she offered some of the bulgogi California roll and a few chicken wings as well which are a treat on Saturdays (you need to order them ahead). They are incredible - not too spicy with a sweet teriyaki-type seasoning and lots of crunch as well. We had the two-meat plate (brisket, chicken), bulgogi and rice with cucumber salad, potato salad, and the philly cheese stead sandwich that was made with bulgogi. EVERYONE left more than satisfied and all for a great price. Ms. Kim was a very interesting person to talk with!

Stopped by for lunch and was very impressed with the food and the lady that runs the place. After finding out it was my first time she cut samples of everything for me to try and it was all great.
I would recommend this place for anybody looking to have BBQ for lunch.

This is a good place to find some fine smoke bar-b-que near downtown Temple. The owner is always friendly and finds time to speak with each customer that comes in. She serves good quality meats and an assortment of sides. But seriously- how many places have you been to where you can order bbq, bulgulgi and kimchi?

We almost didn't go in because of the building, but we opened our car window and the smell was so incredible we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed, the food was the best we had ever eaten. We ordered Brisket, ribs and sausage, all were great. our first time in Texas visiting grandchildren, they couldn't get enough. We were given samples and that sold us. We will go there every time we visit!

Not only did we get a couple of samples: Teriyaki BBQ chicken and chicken gumbo...excellent. We ordered BBQ chicken and pulled pork sandwich, 3 sides, which were cucumber salad, red beans and rice and potato salad( all were very good).

The owner waited on us, she was happy and very knowledgeable about her BBQ.

Not to be missed! Probably the best chicken BBQ in Texas!
