10 bucks gets you one bowl that you fill with meats, veggies & seasonings. The meats were refreshed frequently and there were plenty of them. I liked the chicken, marinated steak, with some shrimp & scallops. You can get unlimited bowls for another 4 bucks.

The nice thing about this Mongolian Grill is that you don't have to stand there waiting for your food to be cooked. They give you a number and it is brought out to you by a waitress.

Beer selection is poor. No craft beers, but Kirin is on tap.

I will be back next time in town.

ate here twice in a week - pick your own everything and watch it be cooked in front of you - and its reasonably healthy....really, really enjoyed this as a light option

This is a Mongolian restaurant where you need to build your own bowl and are thus almost solely responsible for how your food will turn out. I know that for a lot of people, especially the cautious diners, this is the biggest drawback of eating at restaurants such as these. However, Genghis Grill guides you through the process and it has a lot of little cards that tell you the combinations of proteins, vegetables and sauces that will create your desired bowl. I do not use these cards, though, and just pick out the proteins and vegetables I want and get a mix of different sauces that look interesting to me. You also have a choice of carbs and I always choose the udon noodles. For the diet conscious, you can even eliminate the carbs completely. The line can be long during dinner time, so I suggest you come early. And when the weather is good, try to get an outdoor seating because the smoke from the grill tends to get caught on your clothes.

I have driven by this place many times but never stopped in. Well, the other day my girlfriends took me and I'm so glad they did! I was reluctant at first because I'm only eating protein and I wasn't sure if they had what I was looking for. I got on line, picked my bowl and then my friends said to pile it high with anything I wanted and they would stir-fry it at the end. I put chicken, fish, shrimp, beef in my bowl with a lot of vegetables and then I mixed in some great sauces. I passed on the rice and noodles. Well, when they brought this food combination to my table I didn't know what to expect but to my surprise it was FANTASTIC! I was so full the rest of the day and at 7pm I still wasn't hungry. I went home and told my family we have to go! This place fits perfectly into my diet. If I wasn't budget conscious now, I would be eating here several nights a week. I had a club soda and the bowl all for $9.00 and it made my day! The atmosphere was fine...staff was so friendly.
