Took my son here for his 53rd birthday; restaurant is always clean and today was no exception, seated quickly, waitress right there to take our order; entire restaurant sang Happy Birthday to my son, food bars and sauces were plentiful and there was one employee assigned to keep the bars clean and well filled - he did an excellent job...

This used to be one of my favorite places to eat in Lakeland, but after my visit in October I won't be back. The restaurant was very dirty. The tables felt greasy, the place smells of old oil, even the door to the restroom was greasy. It was the worst dining experience I have had in at least 4 years.

There are much better grills than this one. Not loving the flavor of the sauces and I don't feel the grill is done the same way. Genghis does a much better job. Great service though!!

Service was slow. Waited 45 minutes for crew to restock the salad bar. Place was a mess. Like a food fight took place there. Food/sauces all over the place.

I ate here one time bc I wanted to try it and the concept seems nice. The sanitation is questionable, the cooks and wait staff are loud and unprofessional. the food itself was good. Hot and fresh, but like I said the sanitation is very questionable.

Love the choice of making the food contents yourself. Fabulous meat and veggie bars. Tip: put your veggies in first then load on the meats. You can get twice as much in a bowl. Go lite on the spice heavy on the sauce. I love this restaurant.

I felt like I was at a frat house barbecue and I don't mean that in a good way.

We have passed by this place many times and finally decided to try it. We definitely liked the concept... but not the execution. There were many choices of ingredients (even for us vegetarians), but the ingredients were not fresh looking or appealing at all. The bowl they give you is small but reasonable (but for $14? Really? Totally overpriced). What... More
