A new buffet is coming soon to the former location of the Super Great Wall
Fans of the Super Great Wall Buffet located at the Mall Side Plaza in South Portland have been very disappointed with their favorite buffet over the years. The popular restaurant has had problems over the years, including an employment lawsuit in 2009 and a lengthy closure and reopening in 2019 under new management that didn’t last long before closing again for good.
Now, some buzz has started in southern Maine as a new sign has been put up on the former Super Great Wall touting a new buffet coming soon to the location called the “Flamming Grill Modern Buffet.”
Not much is known about Flaming Grill. Doing a little Google search, I found that there are 14 Flaming Grill buffets on the East Coast, mostly in New York State. The closest locations to Maine are in Malden, Roslindale, and Revere, Massachusetts.
They all have slight variations on their names and logos. Flaming Grill and Buffet, Flamming Grill Supreme Buffet and Flamming Grill Modern Buffet. I’m not sure what makes a “modern” sideboard and sideboard, but I’m really interested in finding out.
If these restaurants are somehow connected, the description on the website for the Flaming Grill and Modern Buffet in East Hanover, New Jersey might give you an idea of what to expect:

The Flaming Grill and the Modern Buffet are totally delectable top restaurants, presented by a flourishing and refined hospitality that guarantees a fun dining experience.

The typos and grammatical errors above are as found on the website.
The windows are still covered at the old Super Great Wall, so we can only assume that we will soon see some sort of building activity there. It shouldn’t take much since the company was already set up as a buffet. Maybe just a bit of a cleanup and modernization to justify the “modern” in its name.
