    Very cool experience, and great food. I’d recommend getting your meat with the marinade, as it makes a huger difference. I gave this restaurant 4 stars instead of 5 because they do not seem to honor reservations. We had to wait 20 minutes after the time of our reservation to be seated. Other than that, I’d highly recommend this restaurant for their delicious food and fun atmosphere!

    Really like this location. It's very clean and the decor is nice. It does get quite loud but that's part of the fun. Food is always good. The kids' meals are a great deal with big portions of edamame, rice, corn, and chicken and beef for cooking. We usually get one of the group meals for adults , and those come with plenty of appetizers including veggies to balance out all that meat. Meat is flavored well and tender. This is our favorite spot for this type of meal.

    The service was better than usual and I’ve been to this location many times. The waiter even provided great recommendations for some of the new items on the All You Can Eat menu, which we would have never considered prior to. So glad we did!

    We ordered a 120 dollar for two and we didn’t have all the food we ordered It was very cold and inconvenient . Are grill was half lit so it took more than 120 seconds for it to be done.

    Had reservations and had to wait a long time for hostess to show up. The wait area was packed and we were told to step back but there was no room. Several flies landing on tongs, and to be at different table and hostess said they have ac really bad problem with flies. Waitress started off rude but was nice right before check came. Definitely the opposite experience I had before...

    It was our first time there! My family and I loved it and would definitely go back! I highly recommend the bip -n-bop(that’s not the correct name or spelling) it was delicious m. We also grilled a variety of meats my only complaint is with the marinade the meat was bland. However the experience overshadowed the tasteless meat. Side note we did add some of the dipping sauces for flavor Shouts out to luiz our waiter he was very attentive :)
