Mongolian stir-fry chain opening in Augusta

  • Follow Local Business

A Mongolian stir-fry restaurant that will let diners build their own dishes is opening soon in Augusta Exchange shopping center.

Genghis Grill, a Texas-based chain, will fill a vacant, 4,200-square-foot building at 250 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway that was formerly occupied by Souper Salad. The grill is expected to open by the end of July or early August, said the restaurant’s public relations manager, Chiara Granado.

“Right now we’re in the construction phase,” Granado said. “We’re completely renovating it.”

The restaurant will feature a 7-foot circular grill where meals are cooked in front of customers after they choose from a variety of ingredients.

Granado said the Augusta business is one of a few Genghis Grill restaurants that will offer an extended menu for diners not wishing to build their own bowls. That menu will feature tacos in addition to Asian-inspired salads, wraps and skewers.

“We can cater to any kind of diet,” Granado said.

Between 30 and 50 full-time and part-time employees will be hired at the restaurant, Granado said.

The first Genghis Grill opened in 1998 in Dallas. There are now more than 100 of the restaurants across the U.S. and two in Georgia, near Atlanta.

Restaurant sites are typically picked in smaller cities, Granado said.

I've ate at Farmhaus downtown and have to say, that is the best burger I've ever eaten. I hope this place continues to stay in business.

Mongolian Repeat

Before anyone gets too excited about this...remember this type of restaurant was the original occupant of what is now Sticky Fingers. I doubt that moving it across the road is going to make that much difference but I could be, and hopefully am, wrong. Hate that I missed the short period of time in which Marlin and Rays was open in the old Ruby Tuesdays on Bobby Jones.

Thank goodness Sean is watching - I don't know who that woman is but she insulted me when she insulted you! You do a service on here - you are the best cheerleader for Augusta this forum has. IMHO

It is bitter all around.

It is bitter all around. Remember names like Marlins, Stonecrest, etc. For every success there is an equal but opposite failure.

Stonecrest was good but was

Stonecrest was good but was way overpriced. I went to the Stir Fry by Targets but it was too too loud inside. Good luck to the new stir fry.

We had something called Bavarian Grill, I think Sticky Fingers ended up there after it closed.

national vs local

Yes, the location of the new Cook Out resturant is Walton Way/Crawford..

Let's not forget companies like Ruby Tuesday were already struggling, and Marlin & Rays was a new concept that failed nationally.

Barnes & Nobles will probably close eventually at the Augusta mall, but the company is struggling overall nationally. Hopefully Cheesecake Factory or Dave & Busters woild take over the building.

I find it best to patronize home-owned restaurants.
French Market Grille, Surrey Center, both Bistro's, Crum on Central, 209, Luigi's, Boll Weevil, etc.
I eat out at least 8 times a month.
