They had a "soft opening" according to Kansas.com on Wednesday so I was able to make it in twice in the past week to try out their Mongolian Grill and their hamburger.
U Grill serves Mongolian Grill food (chicken, meat cooked in a large bowl with your choice of starch, vegetables and sauce). A much smaller scale than what can be found at Genghis Grill, Hu Hot, etc. They also serve Philly cheese steaks, burgers, brats and hot dogs.
I guess the big thing here is everything is under $7 but note that it's a la carte. Your burger is one price, and then you can add a side of fries, salad, tots or whatever else for an additional charge. Here's a picture of the menu that I was able to take a snapshot of:
|That's my thumb in the lower right hand corner. My nails are freshly clipped!|
Upon walking inside, I was greeted both times I arrived. I did not get warm fuzzies inside though. Now if they said, "Hey Eddy" that could be a whole other story!
U Grill also has a little condiment bar with a ton of pickles. I. Love. Pickles. So it was nice to see that there. I loaded up on a bunch of pickles, they aren't Claussen great but edible enough to make me happy.
|The following song lyrics started playing in my head:|
"Heaven isn't too far away!!!!!!!"
|Everything seems so sad when liquor is not involved......|
Right now they are open daily from 10 am to 9 pm. I guess they are having a drive-through set up for later hours for drive-through only (midnight Sun - Thurs and until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays). Linkhaus was supposed to do this and never did. Different owners though for U Grill.
If you're in the area, stop by and check it out. I really do hope this place does well. It'd be a nice extra spot to add to the lunch list. I'll probably check it out again as they start to get everything into gear and smoothly going along. Their slogan is FRESH - FOOD - FAST. They are right about each one so far. Let's see what they are like 3-6 months down the road.
Lastly for kicks, check out my receipt and the server name.
|I feel bad for this guy when he was growing up as a kid with that name!!!|
(i'm pretty sure it was just a dummy name setup in the computer)
