Gyu-Kaku never fails to deliver top notch quality food and service. It did take a while to get a table since it was lunch hour on a weekend, but it was still within a decent time frame.

some of the meats came frozen and stuck together and partially un-marinaded.
also during the last 20-30 min of the "all you can eat" 90 min period the service become suspiciously slower.

Food was great but I wasn’t crazy about the service. The server took our order then disappeared. Luckily I was able to get another server to help us.
