Ate there with a good of friends. You need to know what to pick and have them fix it. My food was dry. I will give it another try. Expensive for what you tet

Diners get bowls and select the ingredients to be cooked on a large circular grill. Lots of items to choose from and many different sauces. Very entertaining to watch the 3 cooks with their special implements moving around the grill, reminiscent of Japanese restaurants where you sit around the grill. You can opt for a dinner where you get to... More

When we are in town we come here as our family from Mo loves it. It has been good on past visits. However, this time (May17th lunch) it seemed that the guys cooking were more interested in putting on a show. Very little attention was given to cooking the food and it certainly showed. We were disappointed.

The kids love this place and the food is always good, however it's always packed and it's a little small inside to get around it, wish it was bigger, but service and food is great.

The host wasn't very pleasant upon arrival, but our server was excellent and handled our large party perfectly. The person directing guests to cooking lines was thoughtful enough to offer carrying my disabled mother's dish back to our table. The guests make a mess of the sauces and spices, so cleaning up more often might make it more appealing. Sadly,... More

I'm a vegetarian in a house full of meat-eating males. I LOVE going to BDs because I can eat all my veggies and can get all the meat they want. EVERYONE gets what he or she prefers! I see the mixed reviews on here, but as long as a customer is aware of the cooking process and chooses his/her food... More

I've eaten at BD's Mongolian Barbeque, and the experience varies. Sometimes the food isn't very good at all--overdone meat, and other times it's exactly what I expect. It's a fun place to eat and one of the few where you handpick what you eat.

I went there on 10/06/13 and had my food burnt, twice. The waitress told me the cooks response was that it was my fault for saucing the dish before handing it to them. That the caramelization of the sugars in the sauce causes the burning, so it was in fact my fault and that I should have added the sauce... More

We stopped here just to try this type of venue. The food was ok and the place was clean, service was good but it just wasn't for us.
