'Cue Restaurant, Finger-Lickin Good!

'Cue Restaurant, Finger-Lickin Good!

I live up in the boonies outside of Atlanta, and that could be a good thing or that could be a bad thing when it comes to finding some good eating. Take for instance when you want some good, ol’ fashion, finger-licking barbecue. There are not that many places to choose from in my area. I thought I would have to drive into the heart of the city until I got wind of a new place that has been open for seven months that’s simply called ‘Cue, owned by two partners, Gene Pica and Chris Hilton.

I was very eager to try it out and, with gas prices being high as heck, I was praying that it was good. When I walked in, the first thing I smelled was the aroma of hickory wood burning. Yes,  this was going to be a great experience. The friendly waitress sat me down, and I started to look over the menu.

Genghis Grill (Mall of Georgia)

Genghis Grill (Mall of Georgia)

Last week my son and I went on our monthly date night and this time we popped into a new place called, Genghis Grill which is located at Mall of Georgia. I try to show my son how to treat a lady, so we hang out and try  new places to eat and we both agreed on this new restaurant that we had been eyeing for awhile now. Genghis Grill opened a few months ago after NY Pizza closed earlier this year.

We walked in and liked the atmosphere, and then we heard a bong. When your food is ready, they hit the bong to let you know. My son loved it; I was startled. In the rear of the restaurant you load up red bowls with protein (the meat of your choice), seasonings, veggies and sauces. First, load up your bowl with protein items that include chicken, ham, steak, pork, shrimp and more. Next, add seasonings. They offer cajun, cayenne, red pepper, ginger and so on. Then, choose your veggies, which range from corn, bamboo shoots, bok choy, cabbage and more.
