Genghis Grill now open


Turkey Creek is home to a new stir-fry restaurant with a unique concept — one based on an ancient barbarian conqueror’s method of cooking over an open flame.

“What we have is a seven-foot round flat surface grill. It resembles Genghis Khan’s shields, and how his military used the shields to cook over an open flame,” Genghis Grill general manager Tammy Hill said.

Genghis Grill opened in early March at 11316 Parkside Drive, and serves Mongolian stir fry based on a “build your own bowl” concept.

“We have a five-step process to building the perfect bowl. What we have is like a raw salad bar-type setup, where you choose as much or as little as you like of each item, and our servers walk you through step-by-step on building the perfect bowl so that it’s right for you,” Hill said.

She said the restaurant has 13 meat choices, 10 spice choices, 31 vegetable choices and more than 16 different sauces.

Genghis Grill is fast casual, but Hill said it’s still “full service,” with a full bar and specialty drink menu, as well as dessert options.


“We have seven different types of desserts. We have a full menu of specialty drinks geared towards an Asian/Mongolian theme,” Hill said.

The restaurant also offers patio seating.

Genghis Grill is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Genghis Grill is based out of Dallas, Texas; the Turkey Creek location is the chain’s 60th and the first in the Greater Knoxville area.

Hill said other Knoxville-area locations are planned.

“It’s growing nationwide by leaps and bounds.

“We’re intending to grow in the Knoxville area as well,” she said.
