    Popular chain Bon Chon Chicken has helped popularize Korean-style chicken wings in NYC. They don't match what you will find in finer sit-down restaurants (like Barn Joo for example). Read more

    Yes their wings are delicious but not as spicy as I would like my wings to be. If you love super spicy wings like me, try next door KyoChon. If you dont care for the heat, this place is amazing for u

    Main floor is for a quick bite. Upstairs dine in. Combo #1 spicy with sweet potato fries. Boy was it spicy!!! Love the garlic and mustard sauce.

    I love the fried chicken here. The watermelon soju drinks are pretty good, too. Staff is great. My only small complaint is the lighting is so dark, I can barely see my food while I eat and drink.

    Whoa, this Korean chain has over 100 locations internationally. And after sampling the spicy soy garlic wings, we think it could use a few more. Read more

    The fried mac & cheese sounds very strange but get it. When it arrives, you'll wonder why anyone would serve a cheese dipping sauce with fried mac & cheese, but just go with it - it's delicious

    Fried chicken is soooooo good. The tacos are delicious. Just get the chicken with fries special though. It’s just what I needed on lunch breaks.

    Get a half/half order of wings & spicy potstickers. But beware if you're going for a late-night snack - they're open til 4 but often close the kitchen much earlier. Hello, I'm not here for the beer.

    Order the mixed chicken. Definitely go with spicy if you can handle it. Regular wings were a tad on the sweet side. Didn't really live up to the hype but still very delicious

    Bonchon Chicken never lets me down. Had potstickers and the chicken wings as I always do. Plus the ambience is always so chill.

    These wings are so addictive, we sometimes order a second box once we've finished the first. Are we proud of this fact? Most definitely. Read more

    While a bit more expensive than "normal" wings, they are worth it. I suggest getting the mixed box and unless you like it REALLY HOT, skip the hot/spicy sauce. Quick service and totally addictive.

    Say what you will about the glut of Korean fried chicken in this 'hood, Bonchon's larger portions & thoughtful restraint w/chili flakes give all the crunch & flavor with none of the mouth-melting burn

    The fried mac n cheese triangles are delicious (although not exactly authentic). Get the lunch special.

    Crispy, tasty fried chicken. Don't get the spicy ones if you cannot handle spice.

    My fave korean fried chicken spot! Crispy & tasty on the outside, juicy & tender on the inside. Warning: The spiciest vers is VERY hot.

    Korean style chicken that hits the spot. Good for large groups but expect some waiting. Music video and sports on multi screens.

    Best wings in NYC. Get the wings instead of drumsticks if you want more of the crispy skin.

    I liked this place more than the Korean Fried Chicken joints in LA, but the quality here came down a bit after switching to owners/management. Still worth checking out. Gets very noisy.

    Hands down the best fried chicken I've ever had. Try the rib eye wraps with the spicy mayo. Delicious!
