It was only okay

I was looking forward to eating here, cause it had been several years, and I remembered it being a good experience. Well, not so much this trip. Most, but not all of the veggies seemed fresh. The brown rice was real blah and dry. For the price, I expected better.

We've been to a fair number of these stir fry restaurants in the past and there wasn't much that made this one stand out. They do have a huge beer selection and allow you to purchase a 64 oz growler to take home. My biggest issue was there isn't a separate bowl for the raw meat and there aren't "taster"... More

I love the fact that I can get good vegetarian food here, while my husband can have all the meat he wants, and it's pretty healthy fare. It's good food at a relatively decent price (costs us about $10/person). The drawback is that it's very loud inside, so hard to talk to one another. On top of that, the wait... More

The price is a little high, so we do not go as frequently. You assemble your food and they cook it while you wait. The food or sauces do not seem to vary as much as they used to when they first opened and 2 of the managers should probably not be in management because they are not outgoing, do... More

The great thing about BD's Mongolian Grill is that you can 'have it your way' -- you get to choose what meats and seafood (or no meat at all!), veggies, and sauces/spices you want mixed and grilled by their 'grillmasters'. One of the new meat items that I tried -- and *loved* was their Sriracha marinated chicken. It made for... More

I was scared to try this place for fear of not picking the right food. Whatever I did have in my bowl came out to be pretty good. The service was good, and this is a great place to hang out with loud friends.

The food is good and they have a large selection of beer too. You can ask for free samples of beer too. The food is as good as you want it because you pick the meat, vegtables, sauces, spices, and can even add an egg. They cook it for you as you watch, but be aware of how you mix... More

We were visiting my daughter, her husband and toddler and stopped in to eat at BD's in Independence, MO. We were seated quickly and soon went through the massive selection of food items to pick our choices. My wife is gluten intolerant and had her food prepared at a separate location within the restaurant. We had to ask to get... More

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
