It is a fun place to see how much good stuff you can pile into one bowl, then add sauces of your choice and free extras before you leave it with one of the many cooks cooking on an open area flat top grill, (hence the name), and have it delivered to your table.

Ok but I have had much better Mongolian throughout the US. Service was great but for the price and favor I know several that are far better. I would go again.

I ate dinner with a large group of friends, some of whom are vegan or vegetarian. /We wanted a place that there would be plenty of options for them and for the carnivores in the group. This place hit the bill. You select meat at your table and fill up on starches and vegetables in a bowl on your way... More

You kind of have to eat here once before you understand what to order and how to order. Basically, the waiter takes your order for one or more meats, and then you go to an extensive salad bar and fill a bowl with various vegetables and such. Then the chef takes your bowl and the meats you selected, grills them... More

I always like to stop for awhile when road tripping. This gives you the nice long break you need and exactly the kind of food you want. Even though it was a Friday night, it wasn't too crowded. We had to wait for about 6 minutes. They changed a few things in that you tell them your protein choice up... More

First time trying Flat Top and was pleasantly surprised. We went for lunch and for $10, our lunch was very filling. This is not your normal type of burger/sandwich place. You pick what you want from fresh veggies, protein, carbs. I will definitely be trying the one in Chicago.

Had not eaten here for years not sure for what reason. Anyway my wife and i decide to go here for a rather late supper for us 7pm. Turns out it was a good choice food and service both good and a reasonable value for the amount of food you get.

I went in reading it was a healthy option. When I arrived I noticed it is like Genghis Grill. The service was great. Food was okay, and price was high. For dinner (which looked like a lunch portion) I had shrimp added to my bowl, a Diet Coke, and tip and it was $25.

They are very rude, not promising the coupons they sent. One of the manager told they are going to charge for everyone even-tough they do not eat.

We had not eaten at this location in quite a while, before they changed procedures with the proteins. Our server Grace was very informative, and made sure to ask when the last time we were in, and then proceeded to explain the change in how the restaurant serves the meats and proteins. Throughout the meal she kept my iced tea... More
