Kaboto is likely the only hibachi restaurant in the area with fresh and well prepared ingredients. The owner and staff are all very friendly. If you ever have a tailgate or maybe craving some wings, I recommend their lollipop chicken.

Very good service and food. Very much preferred over a typical fast food Chinese place. They appear to use fresh ingredients as there was a lot of chopping going on in kitchen. If eating in they take your order at table and you pay from table.

Our family stopped both ways while traveling south and back for vacation. The food is very good, the owner and waiter were very attentive, and no problems with our allergy requests. The kids loved it. Where else can you get good veggie hibachi for $5-6 bucks?

This place is wonderful. Their Hibachi chicken is awesome. My husband and I go here all the time. Staff is extremely friendly and the cook even came out to ask us how we liked the food. We will definitely be back.

Good service but the food could be better. If you craving cheap hibachi takeout, you might enjoy it. Like I said the food is just ok but the portions are big. The owners are very nice and friendly.
