The premise here is to fill your bowl with meat, veggies and spices, allow the staff to cook those on the grill with your choice of noodles or rice, and you are delivered a steaming bowl with your own meal personalized to your exact tastes.
What you get is hand-picked by you, and the food comes hot and fresh from the grill.

From the moment I walked in the door I received nothing but superb service which was a surprise coming from a restaraunt in a strip mall. The entire staff was very friendly and inviting. The food was outstanding and better quality than any other Mongolian restaurant I've visited. My wife and I will be back many times!

Although the concept might be novel - select your ingredients to be cooked - the design of the selection area is very poor! You basically have some large chilled "stations" with the sneeze guard type clear plastic over the top but that is about as close to sanitary as you get. First of all each chill station has the meal ingredients laid out at least two rows deep. This poor design forces almost all diners to have to duck under the sneeze guards and reach far to get to the second row which greatly increases the chances that someone's hair, nasal drippings, spittle, and/or other stuff will fall into the RAW (in many cases) ingredients. Make sure you also include pieces of whatever ingredient you have chosen falling into one of the first row containers, too!

Once we got our meals we found the "starch" (e.g. rice, noodles, etc.) a bit undercooked in most cases.

If we're brave some of us may give it one more try but will definitely go into that next visit a bit more wise to things.

you hire a bunch of teenagers to run your business?
My boyfriend and I have been to genghis grill about three times before this trip and this one was the worst. We walked in and the two hostesses were laughing and couldn't even greet us. After she asked how many we said two please. One girl walked away as to go find a table then another couple walked in the door and were SEATED BEFORE US!!! Rude!
The food is always great because you basically make it yourself. Server kept refilling my boyfriends sweet tea before he was even half way done with it but NEVER refilled my water. Needless to say her tip sucked. Also, the ladies bathroom floor was nasty.

Its a mongolian grill with a little bit of twist than most. 1- they have cards that will help you create a certain flavor. 2- they have it set up into stations. Protien-seasoning-veggies-sauces-carbs. 3- after you build your bowl., they cook it and bring it to your table. Its all you can eat if you add 4 dollars to your one trip cost. They don't have white sauce. But its still pretty good. The bowls they serve it in are cool. This particular location is in a strip mall and would defiantly benefit if they were in a larger stand alone building. Food is good though. So just wait it out. If you are on a waiting list.
