Why Korean Barbecue?

Korean culture is spreading. From the rising popularity of Kpop groups like BTS to hit Korean television like Squid Game, Korea is making its mark on the West. 

With a complexity of different flavors and cuisine largely comprised of proteins, vegetables, grains and assorted spices, Korean food is a great choice for the health-conscious and clean-eating consumer.

From generations of recipes passed down, DAE GEE leaves our customers well fed with culture, humor, and top quality home recipe style Korean food.

Joseph Kim is the founder and owner of Dae Gee restaurants. Colorado-born, he has been cultivating the Korean BBQ experience locally for 10 years. Joe's dynamic take on entrepreneurship means always maximizing an opportunity to share memorable food experiences with the community. According to Joe, "It's about family. For our restaurants, the community that surrounds us is our family." Dae Gee comes from multi-generational roots and feeding the neighborhood runs in his blood. Grandma's recipes have been passed down from the first family restaurant to Mom's restaurant. Dae Gee now pays homage to all the family recipes through each and every meal.

  • Korean BBQ

    Dae Gee (which means pig in Korean) is a Korean BBQ restaurant progressively blending Korean food traditions with American culture. We combine the freshest ingredients, endless flavor, and a fun atmosphere to give you an exceptional dining experience.

  • #Pigout

    This is the customers chance to fill up, to indulge in eccentric flavors, and to experience diverse dishes. This is the essence of #pigout. Soak in the sensations rather than tirelessly consume.

    Enjoy fully.

    Bring out your inner pig.

  • Family

    Korean dinner is all about communal living. When sharing sides and expertly seasoned beef off the grill, you tend to rub elbows with your neighbor. Attract new collaborators, new customers, building brand loyalty, and ultimately change the world.
