Bonchon Is Finally Frying Spicy Korean Chicken in Stapleton

The international franchise opens its first Denver shop

Bonchon Korean Fried Chicken is now open at 8302 Northfield Boulevard, Suite 1590 in Stapleton

The wait is over for fans of the international Korean fried chicken sensation Bonchon. After summer-long delays, Denver’s first location of the franchise has finally opened at Stapleton’s Northfield development, 8302 Northfield Boulevard, Suite 1590.

For those who don’t know, Bonchon sells made-to-order crispy wings and drumsticks coated in a soy garlic or spicy sauce. Sides such as pickled radish and kimchi, and more plates such as pork buns, bulgogi, and bibimbap are also on the menu. Bonchon Stapleton offers alcohol, too, with $3 craft beer and $4 cocktail specials during evening and late-night happy hours.

Denver resident Henry Lee is bringing this and one more Bonchon to Denver, with the second location yet to be announced. The Bonchon franchise is based in New York with more than 200 locations around the world.

Diners will find Bonchon Stapleton open during limited hours this week, with normal hours coming next week. For now, customers can dine in from 3 to 10 p.m. Thursday, from 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday, and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday. For more hours, check the restaurant’s Facebook page.
