My favorite place to eat out when you are trying to "eat right". Dont get me wrong, cause you can make your meal the way you want it. Good deserts too.

I stopped in here before I went to a concert. The food was great, service was awesome, location was great. My only complaint was no sunflower seeds for my dish, but that is so minor.

We had never encountered this type of restaurant before so we received instructions from the wait staff. Pick your food items as you go through a cafeteria-style buffet line, including your sauces and seasonings. The cooks perform as you watch. Return to your table with your meal. Everything was cooked to perfection. I would like to find one near me... More

We returned to this old favorite off I-70 on our return trip to KC for a ballgame. Although this visit was enjoyable, we just did not think overall this experience rated and excellent, due in part to a lack of friendly staffers, overall cleanliness, raw food upkeep and some staff food waste of whole eggs at the cook area. Based... More

I'd never been here before and I wasn't sure about what to expect. My group of 8 co-workers were greeted and seated promptly without a reservation for Friday lunch. There was a variety of items to choose from including lots of spices and sauces which I welcomed. The cooks were really nice and took extra precautions with my seafood allergy... More

Service was slow. Had to ask for more iced tea, and then the waitress filled my glass and neglected my wife, so I had to find her and ask for more iced tea. The restaurant was not very busy. We went through the line and filled our bowls with the appropriate food, put on our oils and seasoning, and then... More

The sign on the restaurant said BD's Mongolian BBQ and that does not apply as was no BBQ. You get a bowl about the size of a cereal bowl and told to go to the buffet and fill the bowl with meat, veggies, sauce and seasoning which you then give to the people who will grill it while you wait....

Great food! Expensive. You go through a buffet type line and fill a bowl with whatever you would like to make into a meal. Then you take it to a large grill and an employee takes the bowl, grills it up for you, and puts it on a plate. You can create a mixture of sauces containing any of the... More

We loved how you go through these buffet type lines and there were cards at each one to show you what ingredients to choose if you wanted Kung Po chicken or Sesame Chicken ect. Then there were cards to show you how to make the sauce for it. Then you go up to this counter where there is a huge... More
