Small, eat all you can Mongolian. Everything is fresh and extremely tasty. You select your ingredients and put them in your bowl, and they prepare it right in front of you.

We tend to like high-end restaurants, but El Camino Mongolian BBQ was highly recommended and it turned out to be a good recommendation. $13.95 for dinner is an outstanding value. The food is fresh and you get to choose what you want, but the sauces are minimal. Whatever sauce(s) you choose, the flavors will not jump out to please you,... More

I love Mongolian Grill. I have been eating it for 40 years. This one falls in the middle of the pack. The service was very good, the place is clean and neat, and the produce was fresh. Unfortunately, I let the guy behind the counter add the sauces for a "spicy" dinner. The taste was flat. Mostly the flavor was... More

Let me start off by saying tgat we've been here multiple times.if you're coming for a quiet night,this is not the place for you. But if you're looking for a real good meal at a very good price, then this is the spot for you.Tacky yes,but it's part of the family atmosphere you get as soon as you walk in.... More

This place has great staff, Everyone treats you like you are definitely a guest of theirs. The food is amazing if you know how to build your recipe. I have been going here since they have opened, even though Ownership has exchange hands, the atmosphere is the same.

Great business lunch stop. Pick your own bowl loads of meats and veggies and sauces, they cook it up piping hot. It's great. Sides add well so you won't leave hungry. Good service, will be back.

Being first timers, we loved the cost restaurant.. the owner greeted us and helped each one choose our sauces for the freshly sauted noddles.. the buffet spread also included soup, fried rice, chicken krispies, vegetables roll and corn fry.. seems to be an old and popular place

Can't recommend this place highly enough. You choose from a selection of wafer thin frozen meats (pork, beef, lamb, chicken) and a huge variety of veg, putting meat in one bowl and veg in another. Add a selection of sauces varying in spiciness over both then they fry it all on a massive hot plate in front of you. Absolutely... More

This place is always great. Large group, small group or just by yourself. You build your own plate. Perfect for vegetarian or meat lovers. Never leave disappointed.

Small restaurant that is not flashy, but the food is outstanding. $17 for dinner & drink. Lots of veggie options to compliment the meats of lamb, beef, pork chicken. You add what you want and how much-the return has guide to assist in getting dinner spicy or sweet.
