I buy many gift cards each Christmas to give to business associates and friends. I have purchased them from other restaurants but have been buying more from here each year. First of all the place is fun and the food is very good and fresh. The wait staff are always friendly and very helpful. One of the reasons I give... More

I was a frequent flyer to Flat top years ago, now not so much. But after this visit, I think I'll come back more often. I forgot how much fun the stir fry experience was. They did change the "protein portions" from DIY to "ask and we'll get it". Not good or bad, just different. I certainly did not leave... More

The best thing about Flat Top Grill is the overwhelming combination of flavors that you can have added to your food. You could literally just fill your bowls with Chicken, rice, noodles and broccoli, and have them taste 50 different ways. Simple concept if you haven't been there before. You choose your toppings and a protein and they do the... More

Lots and lots of healthy choices. You can make it as unhealthy as you like if that's your thing. Plenty of proteins to choose from. I like the flatbread or whatever they called it to go with my bowl. One of the few places I eat where I walk away feeling full and don't feel robbed, good value.

I do enjoy the Flat Top Grill experience with the build your own bowl. The concept seems to have gotten "old" in the last 10 years or so. This visit was a revival of my visits and it was a good one. It did remind me why I liked it so much.

Wow, what a delightful place to eat especially for those of us who are trying to eat healthier! You first choose a rice, pasta, etc. to put in your bowl if that's what you want....I just went straight to the very numerous fresh healthy veggies. You put as much of whatever you want in the first bowl. You then select... More

It's as good as you make it. Because you get to pick what you're putting in your bowl, including how much of each ingredient, it's really up to you as to how your meal will taste. Lots of choices for us vegetarians; just time your visit so you're not hitting a rush hour. The concept is simple - fill your... More

If you are looking for a healthy meal at a fair price with superior service, Flat Top is the place to be. The bowls offer you a variety of fruits, vegetables, sauces, and meats. The staff at the location is well trained, and extremely customer focused. It is a fantastic visit every time.

Flat Top Grill is a popular restaurant in the Mall at College Hills in Normal. We ate here recently and were really disappointed. Once the choose your own vegetables and meat for the chefs to stir fry seemed like a cool concept, now it just seems unhealthy. We never received clear directions to refresh us on how it works. So...
