Mongolian Stir-Fry at Old Country Buffet and Ryans PART 2

See our article of March 22, 2013 for PART I

PART II

The next visit was the night I would try
it, but when I went up and that the young man who was being trained was
gone but a very personable young lady was there in his place. I went up
and she smiled - so rare at an OCB from many employees with very special
exceptions. I asked for chicken with noodles and vegetables. She filled

Mongolian Stir-Fry at Old Country Buffet and Ryans PART 1

Old Country Buffet, Alexandria, Virginia

I have not been to an Old Country Buffet in another state for quite some time. We were in Virginia and decided to try the OCB there outside of the city of Alexandria on a Sunday night. We frequently eat at OCB locally on Sunday night so I knew I would have a good night for comparison.Locally, the OCB is generally crowded on a Sunday evening - around 6:30 pm. In fact, we tend to arrive later after
