Excellent food, they just need to spray for bugs ASAP

Took my son here because the food is so healthy and good for diabetics. Wouldn't you know he finds a cockroach crawling around on the bar where he placed his food to be grilled! He killed the thing, wrapped it in several napkins and gave it to the cook. Then we called the manager over to inform... read more

We have passed by this place many times and finally decided to try it. We definitely liked the concept... but not the execution. There were many choices of ingredients (even for us vegetarians), but the ingredients were not fresh looking or appealing at all. The bowl they give you is small but reasonable (but for $14? Really? Totally overpriced). What... More

This place is delicious! We have never ever had a bad meal or server. The cooks do an impeccable job, they are quite friendly and make it a great time. We go about every month!

Okay in all honesty, the first time I was dragged into this place by friends I was very skeptical. When you first walk in, it does not seem like much but once I got past the explanation on how this place works and got to actually fill my bowl, watch it being prepared and most importantly, got to taste it:...

Went here while on a business trip. I was sadly disappointed. You can choose from the salad bar, one bowl of BBQ or all you can eat. The prices are expensive for what you get. I opted for the one bowl of BBQ that included a bowl of rice. The bowl to take up is small and does not accommodate... More

We ran in here on a dark, stormy night in April, while attending the Lakeland Airshow. We were looking for something different, and this was it. You choose your selections from a buffet of raw veggies, seafood, fowl, and meat, and take them to the cooks who grill it to order on a huge (aprox 10' dia) flat top grill,... More

Wanted to try this place as we walk by it all the time... Wish we just kept on walking. First, it's very confusing as to how the whole thing works. People there didn't seem to know what to do, including us. Second, the food was terrible. Service was mediocre at best. The expensive price tag was definately not worth the... More
