There’s some decent barbecue here. I first tried them in Waikiki where I became a fan of this chain. The “cook it yourself” concept serves as a good vehicle for socializing while dining and the Vegas location, located off of Spring Mountain road, is perfect for date nights or gatherings with friends and family.

It’s better to order a la carte instead of going with the meal deals, in my opinion, and skip stuff you may not really want like salad, soup and edamame. Proteins like the harami miso skirt steak and kalbi short rib don’t take long to cook but can benefit from extra time on the grill to get crispy around the edges. Other items we tried were seasoned well like the garlic shrimp and vegetables. The garlic rice, arriving in a stone pot, will get crispy when left in there. It’s a larger portion that can be shared by two people. I loved the slivers of garlic mixed in with the rice.

The food isn’t groundbreaking, but it is good and perfect for meals that center around the company you’re with, rather than the food itself.
