Based on the centuries old traditions of the Mongol warriors of Asia, who gathered in large community groups in banquet-style pavilions to create a "feast" for all to enjoy by combining slivers of meat & vegetables, sliced with their razor-sharp swords, then cooked on their overturned shields over a blazing fire, bd's Mongolian Grill is the world's number one Create Your Own Stir-Fry restaurant. bd's unique fun comes from YOUR ability to create your own "feast" from a variety of choice meats and seafood, fresh veggies & flavor-packed sauces, freshly cooked before your eyes (Mongolian-style) on a large, flat grill!
bd's Mongolian Grill is conveniently located off of I-75, Exit 108 at 2309 Sir Barton Way in Hamburg Place. Reservations are not required, but are recommended. Call (859) 264-0686.
