BD's Mongolian BBQ in Okemos is now CLOSED. A sign - "this restaurant is closed" - on their front door greets anyone who stops in for lunch or dinner.

I remember way back 40+ years ago when it was called the "Imperial Gardens" restaurant...I ate there MANY times and enjoyed the great dishes. They even used to have a great selection of HUGE drinks that were for two people: my favorite was the "Volcano" which had a fire burning in the middle. The appetizers were great, too.

But since then, ownership was changed along with the name...and now, after 21 years, it is no more. According to Fox47, an auction will be held on January 25th but details are minimal. The auction will be handled by Biddergy.com. You may be able to find out more on their website gomongo.com as well as other locations in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Canton, Dearborn, Flint, Novi and Royal Oak.

Reasons for the closure are not yet known.
