What a cool place for fired up Mongolian style dishes! It was my first time to experience the way they do things, and I really enjoyed all of it. The facility is very nice. We were there mid day, and they obviously could use some more help at those hours. Only one man seemed to be handling everything, and enough... More

I love Mongo BBQ when it's done right, but there seem to be very few places that do it at all and fewer yet that do it right. I've tried that genghis khan place last time I was in town and didn't care for it. This place was a bit far for me, but figured I'd give ti a try,... More

NIce atmosphere and plenty of seating. Veggie bar is plentifull and fresh. A simple selection of meat, then add in a variety of sauces and spices to make it your own. The flat wok cooks it up right and comes out hot and fresh. Service was quick and great. Prices are reasonable.

Whether you are a vegetarian or a carnivore this place has good fresh food. Best of all you get to select exactly what you want to eat. You fill a bowl with vegetables, meats, pasta, and sauces then put it on a counter. A cook takes your selection and grills it on a large metal plate. I've been there and... More

I like this place a lot - it's not a 5-star place - but since you choose your exact ingredients, you choose what it will taste like. So I always get exactly what I want and it's always very good. Another review mentioned dirty - I don't think that's fair - it's as good or as bad as any other... More

They want you to start at the veggies and by the time you get to the meat you plate is full. I recommend starting t the meat section. Load up and then add the rest.

It was an very interesting visit as I never had food prepared this way but the service was slow and impersonal. The environment was dirty and unkempt. Would not go again.

I hoped for a delicious lunch, and stopped in. The young man at the counter walked me through how it worked, and then sat me at a dirty table. I asked if the could clean it, and he said he would get to it. He did, but there were plenty of places that were clean and ready. The cook cleaned... More

I've been to many Mongolian BBQ places and this one is just average. Upon arrival we were met by a young man who asked if this was our first visit. We said yes and that was the last thing we understood that he said. He talked as he walked away from us and seemed to mumble everything he said. We... More

We really like that you can choose all of the items you want in your BBQ grill. Make up your own tasty treat or go by the menu on the wall. Service is nice and the restaurant is always clean and roomy!
