Genghis Grill Bowl

Genghis Grill Bowl

Amanda Galiano
Genghis Grill has a fun concept. Diners build their own stir fry. The menu is infinitely customizable and even picky eaters will be satisfied. They have vegan options. However, it's not 100% vegetarian friendly as the same grill is used for all orders. They are separated, but the grills are only scraped and heat cleaned between orders. Service is great, and the price for all you can eat is just $12.99 ($9.99 for all you can put into one bowl).

Fun Concept, Great for Picky Eaters and Somewhat Healthy

I've always thought customizable menus were a great concept. Genghis Grill offers the ultimate customizable build-your-own stir-fry.

When you walk in, you're given a metal bowl and asked if you've visited before. If you haven't, you're told the five steps, and the way Genghis works as you're taken to "Khan's Kitchen." Then you're let loose to "make" your meal.

First, you pick a protein: raw chicken, steak, turkey, beef, faux crab, sausage, pork, ham, pepperoni, shrimp or tofu. You can season it with one of about a dozen spice blends (hot and spicy are on the bottom shelf). After that, add in your veggies (they have everything: peppers, sprouts, carrots, potatoes, broccoli, pineapple, cabbage, onions, mushrooms) and pick from about a dozen sauces. They give you a separate bowl for the sauce so it won't burn on the grill. Then, hand your bowl off to a grill master and tell him what starch you want. You can pick 2 from udon noodles, rices, pasta and tortillas. I just choose one. The food is literally ready in minutes once you hand it over.

If that's overwhelming, they also have pre-printed, color-coded cards with recipes on them.

What you get is a huge bowl of food. Mine was a little TOO spicy, but the waiter warned me about the dragon spices. It was cooked perfectly and our waiter was friendly and helpful.

You can get all you can eat for $12.99, but one bowl is only $9.99 ($8.99 at lunch). They charge you $12.99, then discount it $3 for "one bowl." It's a slight of hand discount.

I would recommend a visit. This would be a great place for picky kids.

I usta love it..., Member theauthorktlove

I usat love it! My husband introduced me to it since they opened but it has continued to go downhill. We come in for to go orders and are directed to the bar. We stand there for about 8 minutes no one paying us any attention being bumped and shifted in the narrow space as the bar was full. We walked over to the buffet deciding to pay after we build our bowl since we would have to wait anyway while it cooked. The floor was so sticky it nearly stole the flip flops off my feet! The protien bar was missing stuff, the sausage was cut into huge willy nilly hunks where you 'd know they didnt give a damn. There were flies. The vegggie bar was so messy and mixed up I couldnt decipher what was what. No teriaki in the sauce tray, only a broken egg in the egg tray... and everything is a mess. After we stood there back in the aisle constantly bumped and pardoned, the food came. I was allthe way home before I got the kicker. The food was covered in grill dirt! I have had it dozens of times before it was NOT like this! It ruined my experience COMPLETELY! I usta love it...
