Technically, Cathy2 made the inaugural visit to this spot. However, LTH North had a great meal here yesterday - viewtopic.php?f=19&t=31184
Wooil is a new spot on the hit-and-miss dining strip of Milwaukee Ave. Some tables are set up for bbq. Others are for regular dining.
The owner/manager stopped by our table to offer ordering suggestions. At the end, our group of eight decided to order eight different entrees off of the lunch menu. The entrees come with the usual eight sides.
Service was very attentive without being obtrusive. Our waiter also offered suggestions as we ordered. Our food arrived quickly. The restaurant was not crowded during lunch.
I inadvertently grabbed a copy of the regular menu as we left instead of the lunch menu. So I can't comment on what we ordered. As noted in the LTH North thread, everything we ordered was quite good. As I recall, most entrees at lunch were around $9-$10. Perhaps someone else from LTH North can chime in as to what we specifically ordered. The regular menu is quite extensive, including appetizers, side dishes, "authentic bbq dishes", broiled fish, hot pots, bibimbob entrees, stew entrees, noodle and soup entrees.
Overall, a shining spot on the Milwaukee Ave corridor. I'll definitely add it to my dining rotation. Now if only I can convince my wife to eat goat...
