“Fresh ingredients and a unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

I know there are other Mongolian BBQ's out there, but if you're not familiar with the concept, you're in for a unique experience. You can pick out your ingredients such as meat, vegetables and sauces, then hand it over to the grill chefs. They then fry it up right in front of you and give it back.

I was impressed by the selection and how fresh the ingredients looked. Also, you can go on their website and calculate the calories in your bowl. I had beef and about 5 different vegetables and a sauce and my total ended up being 290. Pretty low for a meal- and tasty too. Comes with rice on the side so you would have a few more cals.

“Fun meal with options for every taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This was a more "upscale" Mongolian BBQ than the ones I've been to in California. There are many options to choose from at the prep bar where you fill your bowl with the variety of contents. What make this different is that there are many pre-made sauce choices, so it's not just an Asian style stir- fry, but you could make a fajitas mix. A bowl of rice and a basket of tortillas is served with the meal. A good option is the all you can eat pricing if you are visiting with hungry teenage boys.

“Enjoyable Meal - Something Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

My family of 3 had a delicious meal here. This is a Mongolian grill where you fill a bowl with noodles, beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, and veggies. You add your choice of topping and spices and they grill it up for you. A salad bar is provided and you leave quite satisfied. Dinner price was $16 for one bowl and $20 for all you can eat. One bowl was plenty for us with salad. Children under 4 were free. They had a full bar with reasonable prices. It was convenient to all the hotels.

“Good place for hungry kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

Atmosphere here is pretty loud, though fun and with large-screen sports, and in good weather there's outdoor dining along but far enough back from the busy Wisconsin Ave. The specialty here is an all-you-can-eat, customizable quasi-stir-fry. (Quasi because it's cooked atop a heated rock rather than in a wok, but the effect is similar, just a little bit more browning and less steaming.) Basically, you walk around a large salad bar that includes raw seafoods and meats, pick out what you want, and give it to the cooks. (Don't worry about the raw part, it's all handled in a way that respects proper food hygiene.) You can watch them work (takes maybe 5 minutes) or return to your table. It's a great choice for kids because they can pick out what they want, although they have to be old enough to have a big enough appetite to make that a great value.

“Fun restaurant. Bring your appetite.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2010

BD's is pretty decent mongolian style bbq and is good for families with children and large parties. Load up on meats, veggies, noodles, and sauces then watch your food cooked on the large mongolian grill. AYCE prices for adults can be a bit steep, but kids eat at reduced or free prices with paying adult. They have decent drink specials during the week.
