    Mike, please say it’s in San Jose, and not in the San Francisco Bay Area. Granted, what you said is true, but that Gen is about an hour away from SF (I definitely know which Gen that is because it’s by my house) Also, kinda disappointed in this video because More Gen KBBQ have been popping up in the SJ/SF area and I thought you’d show us more.
    Hey, next time you come to San Jose, you hit me up and I’ll show you what best KBBQ San Jose has to offer!

      Hence why he labeled it "San Francisco Bay Area". There's one near Walnut Creek/Concord up north, one in Milpitas, two in North San Jose, and one in Mountain View.

    You always have the best videos. 10 years ago, I went to a Chinese hot pot with BBQ in the San Francisco "Richmond District" I do not remember the name, but I can not find on Google.. Do you know any Hot Pot/BBQ restaurants in SF/Sac or anywhere else Where my Family can experience the Hot pot and the Grill in the same table?

    Honestly didn’t like Gen that much, preferred Q-Pot way more. Little human interaction and better seasoning though it’s like $5 more expensive

    I know this is late but this is why I love to go to KBBQ cause they want to teach you how to cook as well. I love to learn how to fry my food and they always help me learn.

    Granted, this looks delicious, but having watched several of your videos, your reactions are always the same and OTT. From this, to microwave ramen, you always seem to say the same thing.

    not even 30 bucks for a single plate of brisket. At most, 20 bucks, and they give you a hefty amount of them as well.

    I just now realized why the rest of the world thinks Californians are so pompous and arrogant, specifically southern Californians. I grew up in LA so it hasn’t hit me until now. It’s because everything in California is better. Everything. Those kbbq spots you showed in New York look like the most disgusting restaurants ever. No wonder everyone hates on us, specifically La. And Here in LA Gen is a joke, too. You should take a trip to Los Angeles. K-Town is where it’s at!
