This place doesn't always get good sanitation grades so I always go after I have read they have been inspected. The food is good, can be very healthy and is fast and convenient too.

It's very sad watching the decline of this business since new ownership/bad management took over. They are now coasting (downhill at an accelerating rate) simply riding on the coat tails of the previously excellent and outstanding manager who actually cared more about this place than the chain smoking, penny pinching, cheapskate running it now. His solution to a roach problem... More

Great concept, you pick out your food from a raw buffet then take it to the large circular grill and they cook it in front of you. You purchase your food by the bowl or all you can eat. One bowl can satisfy the average person and 2 if you are really hungry. There is a "gong" in front of... More

Everyone at our company loved the whole process of picking their own ingredients. We were given access to their private room in the back, which was very nice for our gathering, however the lighting could have been better. Based on how much everyone liked it, we will likely return for our next outing.

The last time I visited Crazy Fire was about 8 years ago. At that visit the AC was out and the back door was open and flies were everywhere. After that visit I stated I'd never return. Well, I kept seeing cars there and missed eating this style of food, so I decided to give them a chance. We arrived... More

We have been here several times as we traveled through NC over a period of 5 or so years. This restaurant has gone downhill. It must have new ownership since the last time we visited in March 2015. They no longer are able to accommodate diners with Celiac Disease as safely as before. And the salad bar was pathetic. There... More

This is always a fun place to visit. They have a large selection of meats and veggies and a very large selection of sauces. The large selection can be good and bad. You fill your own bowl add you sauce then they cook the food on a big round grill. With the large selection it is not uncommon to try... More

We usually go here at least once a year... the place has changed over time, but the food is still good. Since you select pretty much everything that goes into your plate, you are really only to blame if it's not right. The cook was spot on and all the meat was cooked properly and nothing wasn't burnt. Only complaint... More

Ingredients are looked very fresh. Although they do not practice FIFO(First In First Out). I witnessed a gentleman restock the buffet line by pouring new product on top of old product. Not good practice. Great to watch them cook it. Great selection of sauces which I personally enjoy because I am a chef, but there was no way of sampling... More

A unique place where you become the chef. Create your own stir-fry and have our grill masters cook it up right in front of you. We use only fresh produce on the veggie line and nothing contains MSG. So come on by and stir something up today...and don't forget to ring the gong!
