Named after the Korean word for meat, GOGHEE Korean BBQ Tacos began as a simple drive-thru shack, where guests could grab tofu tacos or Korean chili-sauce pork burritos inspired by equal parts Asian street food and no-frills Mexican fare. Now, owners Janice and Terry continue that tradition in a new permanent brick-and-mortar diner where they offer Kor-Mex fusion food, a combination of Korean BBQ and Mexican tortillas. Like the world’s most complicated bus system, their menu brings together three disparate parts of the globe, introducing American fries to crispy-spicy kimchi or Mexican carnitas to a ginger garlic marinade, as well as Korean BBQ's ginger-soy marinated meat accompanied by zesty soy-vinaigrette-dressed lettuce. Guests sample extras, such as the crispy tortilla chips and Korean chocolate-covered cracker sticks, or build their own plate of nachos, tacos, or salad with ingredients such as soy-marinated short rib, chili-kissed chicken, brown rice, and jalapeno salsa.
