What is it? A different kind of restaurant for the Outer Banks

By on April 20, 2019

Construction slowed down while crews waited for steel roof trusses to arrive, but the building at the corner of U.S. 158 and East Atlantic Street in Kill Devil Hills is finally taking shape.

You might remember seeing Advanced Tree Service there. Two buildings on two lots were torn down. When construction is done, it will be Khan’s Mongolian Grill.

A familiar local restaurant chain — which asked not to be identified — had originally planned a restaurant after some disagreements with the town over access to U.S. 158.

Outer Banks Guide reports that Khan’s, operated by the owners of the nearby Fuji Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, plans to open this summer.

Patrons will be able to select their ingredients and watch as the chef prepares it Mongolian style on a large grill.

Plans for a restaurant were initially rejected because they included an old driveway that runs off of the busy bypass. The driveway was eliminated, and the Board of Commissioners unanimously endorsed the concept.

The restaurant will be in a 3,000-square-foot building on 27,750 square feet of land.

The lot at the corner of Atlantic Street used to be Advanced Tree service. The one next to it has been various businesses, most recently Bizport.
