This Dallas-based franchise brings open-grill cooking, reminiscent of Mongolian warriors on the battlefield, to Ellisville, with its location at Clarkson and Clayton roads. At Genghis Grill, you build it, they cook it and you eat it. Simple. Diners start by selecting their protein from options including chicken, pork, sausage and turkey. Follow that up with some seasoning, such as lemon pepper, yellow curry salt, ginger or garlic and then fill it all out with some veggies. Veggie options include mushrooms, onions, potatoes, cabbage and some non-meat proteins such as tofu and eggs. It wouldn't be a stir-fry without sauce, and fortunately, diners pick that out next, selecting from chile-garlic, ginger-citrus, sweet-and-sour or Szechuan sauces, from among others. Finally, before handing it all off to the cook, grab a starch, selecting from rice, noodles, pasta or tortillas. For the less culinary-inclined, Genghis Grill offers a few signature bowls that come with their items preselected, such as a Thai chicken bowl, a firecracker bowl of spicy seafood or a meat-free Buddhist bowl. Desserts such as brownies, chocolate lava cake and cheesecake are also available.
