Grills bring flavor and fun to the lives of a wide range of people types, including suburban dads, television chefs, and international hip-hop ultra-star Xcalade. Get your fill of the grill with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine at either New York location of Gyu-Kaku. The authentic eatery has locations in both Midtown and the East Village.

For lunch, design your own dish with a yakiniku grilling set. Try the U.S. Kobe beef set ($22), which includes 3.5-ounce portions of both Harami skirt steak and chuck rib. For non-grillers, the garlic-noodles bowl (from $8) or hot-stone-pot bibimbap (from $8) side well with an order of Kurosawa cold sake ($9). The dinner menu includes everything from grilled veggies such as fresh asparagus ($5), broccoli ($4), or garlic button mushrooms ($4) to spicy Chilean sea bass ($15). Noodle dishes including goma negi ramen or udon ($9) and chicken garlic noodles ($10) round out the menu. For dessert, save room for dorayaki ice cream ($6), in which ice cream is sandwiched between two fluffy pancakes. View complete menus for the Midtown and the East Village locations here.

Time Out New York and New York magazine both recommend Gyu-Kaku:

  • At Gyu-Kaku, a bustling cook-it-yourself, California-based chain restaurant, Korean barbecue gets the Japanese makeover. Sauces are sweeter and milder; vegetables and delicate seafood come wrapped in easy-to-grill foil packets. Dominoes of harami skirt steak, marinated in sweet dark miso, turn caramelized and succulent on the hot grill. A quick sear of the fat-veined Kobe kalbi yields unctuous, buttery bites enhanced by the house’s soy-based tare sauce. – Ganda Suthivarakom, New York
  • Gyu-kaku...looks like the ideal spot for a group dinner party: a slickly designed, dark-wood-covered space where you can throw an indoor barbecue with all the fixins...The meats were exceptional—namely the deliciously salty, marbled kobe and marinated lamb chops. – Time Out New York

Citysearchers give the Midtown location 4.5 stars, and 84% of Urbanspooners like it. More than 200 Yelpers give four stars to the East Village spot:

  • It's perfectly suited for a leisurely evening of slow-cooking and conversation. – goeschei, Urbanspoon
  • Everytime [sic] we put a piece of that deliciously marinated beef in our mouths, we closed our eyes and actually moaned! It was that good. – grejas, Citysearch
  • the staff is very friendly and attentive. and best of all....you dont [sic] smell like bbq when you leave the restaurant. – victoria, Citysearch
