What You'll Get
Hunger, unlike ambulance sirens and restraining orders, is not something you can safely ignore. Answer the mighty call of a bellowing belly with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of custom-made stir-fry, drinks, and more at bd's Mongolian Grill in Oldsmar.
bd's Mongolian Grill combines do-it-yourself dining with a feeling of communal experience akin to collaboratively yanking out a giant radish that’s blocking the town's water supply. Guests can create their own stir-fry meal in one bowl for lunch ($7.99 for vegetarian, $8.99 for meat and seafood, $10.99 for stir-fry with soup and salad, and $11.98 for unlimited stir-fry with soup and salad) or dinner ($10.99 for vegetarian, $12.99 for meat and seafood, and $15.99 for unlimited stir-fry; all stir-fry dinners include complimentary soup-and-salad bar). Choose from myriad meats, a variety of vegetables, a smorgasbord of sauces, and a slew of spices. Pair chicken with bean sprouts and pineapple in a stir-fry you'll deem the "chicken with bean sprouts and pineapple," or combine calamari with egg, peppers, peanut sauce, and chili powder for a meal you'll name after yourself—the "Peter Fonda." With ingredients assembled, guests will pass their stir-fry bowls on to bd's Mongolian Grill's expert grillers, who will give the appetizing assortment a trial by fire on the restaurant's large, flat grill. After the sustenance ceases to sizzle, diners are free to take their customized cuisine back to the table, where they can determine their prowess in patchworking together palate-pleasers and inflating their own egos with compliments to themselves.
Like Kublai Khan downing a pint of tiger-bone liquor while huddled over the crimson claws of a campfire, patrons at bd's Mongolian Grill can also savor specialty drinks and sodas. Enjoy a Mongolian meal on the restaurant's outdoor patio, or opt for indoor seating, where diners can have a front-row seat for the gala of grilling.

About bd’s Mongolian Grill
While it takes prodigious skill to man the 600-degree, 7-foot grill that is the center of bd’s Mongolian Grill’s dining room, the chefs running it don’t have any secret recipes. Instead, customers fashion their own customizable bowls of stir-fry according to their taste preferences, dietary restrictions, and desired portion size. Guests wander, nearly overwhelmed as they choose from an array of meats and veggies and ladle sweet, spicy, and herb-filled sauces into a cup. Chefs sauté the meal in front of their eyes, swords flicking skillfully across the grill to entertain and build anticipation like a mime about to jump buses on an invisible motorcycle. The resulting stir-fry dishes are accompanied by brown rice, white rice, tortillas or lettuce wraps.
