Not your typical KC barbecue

First time in this chain, but will try again. Server was extremely helpful explaining the concept and process. Pick your protein from about 20 choices, move on to vegetables, again pile it on then make your own spice and sauce combofrom sweet nsour to killer hot! Then you take it to a large... read more

I have been here many times and I always search for a bd's when I travel (which is a lot) but most of them are out of business I find. :( Happy this one is still here. The food is always fresh and delicious. They usually have good soup and salad to add, drinks are good, appetizers are usually good.... More

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
