“Be careful...addictive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I'll never think of fried chicken the same way again...this changes everything...and I want MORE. Had the mixed (soy & hot) sauce, and it was a perfect blend of flavor. The chicken was crispy on the outside, and perfectly juicy on the inside. How do they do that??

This place also serves cold beers on tap...which is an added bonus and somewhat necessary with the spicy wings. I wish they would open one in Reston...perhaps the town center!! That would make life so much easier.

“Best chicken wings ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Only two wing flavors - soy garlic or hot. I prefer the hot. The problem with these wings (and the only problem) is that they are quite addicting. I craved these for about a week while begging my girlfriend to go back. The wings are extra crispy. When dining in, there is a decent wait to get your wings. I don't think this is from poor service, the wings are just made very fresh which causes some down time after ordering. The wait is always worth it, and the seasoned fries will hold you over while you wait for your chicken. Recommended for any wing lover!

I recently discovered this Amazing place for sweet, spicy Korean fried chicken. Service is slow but the food makes up for it

“Not bad, but not transcendent chicken”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Pretty good chicken if you like your chicken with a sweet heavy crust; chicken itself is very good. Sides including kimchi cole slaw are pretty good; was not impressed with the fried zuchini. Service, cleanliness, location, friendliness all fine..

“Awesome chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

We went to Bon chon on a recommendation of a friend. We had no idea what to expect at all but the Centreville branch was small, quiet, cozy, and perfect for a casual night out. The waiters were friendly and explained about the food when we asked. The wait is a bit long (35-40 min) for food but thats because its all made to order. The chicken was amazing. The batter was light and crispy and the hot seasoning was very very hot (the waiter said 8 out of 10 but I thought I knew better... I was wrong, it was hot). The garlic sauce was really good as well. The meal also came with pickled radish cubes that were crunchy and perfect after the spicy chicken. The only negative I really had is the lack of seasoning choices, but I wasn't really turned off by it. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you like Asian style friend chicken.
