I have to say the icing on the cake about this challenge with Genghis Grill so far has been the people who I have enjoyed getting to know.
Here at the Mesquite, Texas store is a variety of coolness, from the manager, Jessica, who will meet you with a beaming smile every time you see her, to the assistant manager, John, who seems to be one of the hardest working people I know, you can tell why the atmosphere of this store is open and fun.
One of my more frequent servers has been Jasmine. Talk about a bowl of fun and energy! She got me on Friday. I for the life couldn’t recall her name from last Wednesday, but after two days of people coming and going in here, she could remember mine. She also saved me a ton of headaches as I left in a hurry Friday and left my secret Genghis Grill Health Kwest card and my debit card. It wasn’t till this morning I realized my debit card was missing. John had given me back my GG card yesterday. My point is, Jasmine should get an honesty bonus.
My server today is Katya. She’s Russian by birth and has been in America for the past 11 years. She is so friendly and smart. I know from having friends who were born in other countries some times when you talk to them the conversation runs with a little lag because as you talk in English, they mentally are translating it to their native language, deciding on an ansswer in their home tongue, and then translating it back to you in English. Katya says she’s been stateside long enough, and she doesn’t get to speak Russian often, that she pretty much does it all in English now, Not that that matters; her smile is exciting in any language.
I followed the GG recipe for teriyaki chicken today and added a couple extra ladles of sauce. I have been mixing the sauces and not going with 100 percent of the same. To me, it’s a little too strong. I’m going to have a clean bowl when I leave, but just a reference note.
So who will I meet here next? Yesterday I made reference to the lady who was going through the line just ahead of me. She and her friends were having a great time a few tables down when we left. It was clearly girls night out. Any bets they went to the movies after leaving here?
Next to me now is a family with mom and dad sitting there with their tablets. This must be the tablet section today. Did you know they have free WiFi here?
So what do you do when you come to Genghis Grill? Anyone going to come in for the Super Bowl?
