Now in Knoxville, Genghis Grill's Mongolian barbecue concept is simple: load up a bowl with all of your favorite ingredients, and watch as the chef cooks it right before your eyes. Or, if you need a little inspiration, choose a Genghis Bowl selection that has all the ingredients already picked out.

From the YUMMM! Restaurant Guide:

ACCORDING TO LEGEND, 12th century Mongol warriors under the leadership of the mighty warrior Genghis Khan would heat their shields over open fires to cook on the fields of battle. The Genghis Grill keeps the zest without the struggle with its Mongolian barbecue concept. There is s lots of respect for personal preference here: You load a bowl with your favorite ingredients then turn it over to a chef who stir-fries it to perfection on a grill. All the ingredient options are tasty and fresh, and you can choose from “proteins” like marinated steak, calamari, or scallops; seasonings such as dragon salt, cayenne, or yellow curry; vegetables from bean sprouts to jalapenos; and sauces like ginger citrus, sweet and sour, or roasted tomato.

Too many choices? The house has already concocted some Genghis Bowl selections, and you can let them take over. And did we mention, fast? Genghis Grill is a fine “real food” alternative to the typical fast-food fare, and you can even build a bowl that will help you watch your weight—or sodium or sugar intake. Build anticipation by checking out the website’s “interactive bowl builder,” which gives you the nutritional information for your favorite Mongolian creation.

This place has such a great concept. I can create a different bowl each time I go so I never get bored. The food was fresh and it was fun to watch my food be cooked on their big grill. The service was friendly and to my surprise there was a full bar. The only suggestion that I have is to save room for desert. I ate too much of my bowl and was too full to eat the awesome looking pumpkin swirl cheesecake. I strongly recommend bringing your family and friends here. Game day was a blast and the whole staff showed their appreciation by wearing Genghis Grill shirts in orange.I can't say enough about how great the food is.
