Love the lip locker! Quality burger that is the only thing I've had there along with the oriental fries which go well with the burger!

Tried all recommended by the other reviewers but not impressed. Burger bun was a bit burned, meat quality average based on our experiences. Oriental fries were different but wouldn't order again. Bulogi was skimpy on meat. Prices were fair for the quality.

I've been eating at Kitok's for many years. I have never gotten a meal I didn't like. Even though this is an oriental restaurant I must say their burgers are in the top 3 for me. And the Oriental fries are awesome too!

This is a well-hidden burger joint. I've enjoyed the lip locker burger for more than 30 years. Over those years the original owners have moved on, but it is still great. They also offer Korean dishes, and not only do I enjoy them, I visited with a Korean friend and she also raved about their Korean dishes. We try to... More

The same great menu as we enjoyed over thirty years ago. Great burgers and some traditional Korean dishes. Don't miss the Oriental Fries and Mondu! Everything is super fresh and delicious.

Way off the beaten track, this burger joint is in an older neighborhood and in a very unassuming building. But do not be deterred. Parking is in back, away from the street, and is ample. Inside is a venue well-known to locals. Truly old-school burgers, appropriately greasy and delicious in their simplicity -- and so well priced. Very friendly and... More

The fries are why I go! The burgers are superb, especially the Egg and Lip-lock burgers. No matter how long between visits I am always remembered. Quaint seating. Always a great meal.

Took the fam to KITOK for burgers after playing frisbee golf. Burgers were good, not great. Tables and booths in Kitok were so small that we could barely get seated. I grew up in dive-burger joints and love them, but I Much prefer the food, location, and service at several other burger joints in town.
