    Mongolian Buffet in Ames -- anybody been there?

    I am thinking about taking the wife to the new Mongolian Buffet in Ames tonight.

    Has anybody been there? If so, how is it?

    I have a friend who went.

    Fewer sauce options than huhot, but it also has a regular and salad bar buffet to go along.

    She gave it a pretty good review. I'd give it a shot.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    Obviously this isn't Mongolian BBQ but is it still a franchise? I've never heard of it.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Mongolian Buffet in Ames -- anybody been there?

    It's like a combination of HuHot, King Buffet, and Golden Corral. And it's just as good as that sounds. I've been longing for a HuHot in Ames for years, but this is even better. I highly recommend it.
