Mongolian Empire is the one near Volkswagen on Greenville BLVD? If so, I love that place.

Makes sense, I guess we can hold off on that for a while then. Only adding +5 to the speed limit isn't worth the millions it may cost to upgrade 264.

Exactly; any time I go that direction I'm usually traveling on average 80 anyways. I love the HOV lanes up this way, while you're supposed to obey the speed limit in it, most people, including myself, use it as if its the far left lane of the autobahn. By the way, thanks for reminding of the speed limit.

Very true! Lol it's rare that I can actually speed on the beltway though since most of where I use it is between Bethesda and Silver Spring, or if I'm going up 270. 270 is really where the speed demon comes out of me though, I'm talking going 90 most of the time until some jerk hops in the HOV and actually obeys the speed limit.

HuHut is decent, but it is VERY expensive. I think for a buffet it was around $12-15. Mongolian Empire has less toppings, but it's more authentic, and cheaper. HuHot never offered take out, so you were forced to eat there any pay high prices. For someone who doesn't eat a lot, I felt like it wasn't worth it to eat there.

Mongolian Empire is one of many restaurants that I miss in Greenville.

A man dressed in black just shot up the Walmart.

Not the kind of Greenville developments we want to see :-(

Speaking of Wal-Mart, I heard there will be a Chick-Fil-A & Applebee's & McDonalds built out at the new Wal-Mart area...any confirmation that this is true? I know the McDonalds is true - hadn't heard about the Chi-Fil-A though.

Nothing from the developers has suggested an Applebee's or Chick-Fil-A

The new Wal-Mart is on track to open in mid-July. The store’s exterior construction is complete, and the roadways and parking lots in the complex have been paved and prepared. The store’s interior is mostly completed, with some fixtures still being assembled. Groceries will begin to arrive this week, with frozen food scheduled to arrive on Friday.
