  • The best dishes at Bill Kim's Belly Shack embrace the mix of Latin American and Asian cuisines.
  • The boricua (with marinated beef of course) and asian pork meatball sandwiches here are two of the best in town. Finish with a soft serve topped with Vietnamese cinnamon carmel. - Inspector
  • Get your face on the Korean BBQ, Asian Meatballs and Brussels Sprouts n chorizo
  • must try BELLY DOG!!!! and togarashi fries!! mouth watering <3
  • This place was good...a must try!
  • The Korean BBQ Kogi sandwich and brussel sprout/chorizo side are amazing.
  • Pork meatball sandwich
  • This is a great place but another snob chef that won't allow modifications. I hate mushrooms but they refuse to not add them. So I have to pick them out. Pain in the ass.
  • Don't leave without picking up a bottle or two of chef Bill Kim's fantastic new sauces, including soy-balsamic Seoul Sauce and the tangy, chile-packed Belly Fire.
  • Don't forget a side of kimchi
  • I think former patrons give this place too much credit. The food was just okay and the woman and the register was not the friendliest.
  • BBQ Beef sandwich is the best I have ever had
  • For the love of God, go have the Belly Dog with the togarashi fries! So many flavors dancing on your tongue!
  • Chips & Chorizo SPECIAL TODAY $4!!!
  • everything is delicious!!
  • Belly Shack is one of the best restaurants on the Blue Line. Great Service, Great Food, Simple but Sharp presentation. I recently took a date here, and I received amazing customer service. A+
  • Consistently delicious.
  • Absolutely delicious kimchi and Korean BBQ sandwich, but the Vietnamese iced coffee is unbelievably better and goes well with the sandwich.
  • trying the belly dog
  • Hot and sour soup, boriqua sandwich with beef, Kim chee, tostones. GO!
