If you’re visiting the Dallas area, warm up with Korean barbeque at GEN Korean BBQ House, 2540 Old Denton Road in Carrollton, Texas in north Dallas. The all-you-can eat, you-cook-it-at-the-table menu offers a variety of marinated beef brisket, pork belly, marinated meats and seafood starting at $25 per person. Your order comes with rice, salad to share and pickled or spicy Korean condiments. The restaurant is located in an Asian shopping complex with Japanese stores, Taiwanese bakeries, cafes and a 99 Ranch Asian Grocery Market.

The Korean BBQ chain also has restaurants in San Diego, Los Angeles, California and Henderson, Nevada.

If you’re on a budget, an affordable way to travel is to take the Megabus which travels to Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Houston and other cities in the United States.  A one-way bus fare is $28 to $21 from Dallas to Houston on the Megabus.
