Mongolian BBQ in Atlanta

We went to Hot Stix its first week and we were unimpressed. I know there's the Real Chow Baby on Howell Mill, but I haven't been. I remember lukewarm reviews at first. My fiancee loves these types of places, but I don't want to have to suffer through another subpar meal. Can anyone recommend a place that's actually good?

    The thing with Chow Baby/etc is that the burden is on you - if you don't pick a stellar combo of ingredients/sauces/etc, you're kind of SOL unless you choose to take another stab at it.
    So I've had good experiences at Chow Baby when I've put together a good mix, and bad experiences when I've put together a bad mix. And I've found lunch time crowds are pretty heavy so I would do a late lunch or perhaps weekend/dinner.

      We're good at creating the combos, we just found the ingredients at Hot Stix to be not great, i.e. shoe-leather beef. We'll give Chow Baby a try.
