“Stuff yourself and go back for more...”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is another "you need a coupon" restaurant. It is all you can eat, but for the price, you might want to consider finding a coupon out of the Attractions books. This is a unique place. They have 17 different sauces to choose from...you fill a bowl with raw ingredients and hand it to the cook, who fries it up in front of you. It was good and fun to pick different flavors. The regulars did a lot of combining of sauces.

“Almost Overwhelming Choices”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is an all-you-can-eat "Mongolian grill" style restaurant in which you get a bowl, fill it up with whatever vegetables and meats you like and then choose from a variety of noodles and rices, not to mention about 20 different sauces. You queue up to the cooking area where it's all prepared on a hot metal cooktop in front of you. The combinations are almost limitless. What really sets this restaurant apart is that (1) they cook mainly with water, not oil, so you are tasting the food not oil and (2) the restaurant doesn't have a haze of oil over it. The atmosphere is very casual, in keeping with the mainly college crowd. Limited selection of beers availalble as well as soft drinks.

“It's not your father's restaurant”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We've visited perhaps a dozen times, and always (except when it was too crowded for us to wait) were satisfied. The deal is that you are given a small plastic bowl and via a buffet put the meat and veggies you want, the cooks add rice/noodles and sauce, then they mix it up and cook it on an open grill. You take it to your booth or table for eating.

The food is always good, and the people-watching is excellent, but sometimes it's too noisy for us. But it's good food, something different, and we enjoy it.....occasionally!

“Very Killer restaurant and awesome staff at Flaming Amys”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I have been to Flaming Amys multiple times and the restaurant is seriously a wonderful establishment. The food is killer and the staff is efficient and friendly. The bandito is an awesome burrito (I get it all the time) and strongly recommend.
