When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 550 degrees Fahrenheit—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's Groupon demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of fare at Mongolian Grille in downtown Austin.
Continuing the tradition of firing up fresh comestibles over a flaming-hot grill, Mongolian Grille amasses all the ingredients necessary for succulent Mongolian barbecue, leaving saucy flavor combinations up to brazen diners as they watch their meals sizzle. The menu, bursting with fire-licked flavor, allows Mongolian neophytes the ability to customize their barbecue blueprints with a parade of fresh vegetables and tofu, lean meats that span the globe of proteins, and oodles of noodles. Bashfulness is boring and shame is obsolete, so feel free to pile the plate with as much meat as gravity allows. Seasonings and sauces await their Dr. Frankensteins, as guests can follow the restaurant's seasoning instructions or manufacture their own medley from an apothecary of flavors. Grill sergeants stand ready to seize cold concoctions before heating them to a piquant Mongolian finish. Opt for a quick and tasty lunch with a single trip to the grill ($8.29), or lengthen your stay with unlimited grill forays during the power lunch ($10.29), both of which are served with rice and sesame pocket bread. Dinner jaunts ($10.47) boast unlimited grill visits, soup, dumplings, rice, and bread. With a kids' menu, appetizers, and an array of throat-coating libations, Mongolian Grille flaunts a smorgasbord of delicious choices for guests of all jaw widths.
Located in downtown Austin, this foodie destination is a relaxing place to stuff your face before ballyhooing at the state capital or cruising down Congress in a wheelbarrow full of noodles.
