Took a dinner break here while helping my son move into the area. For just a little bit more time it is a much healthier choice than the fast food chain places. We ordered and had our food within just a few minutes. The entrees...More

We thoroughly enjoyed eating at this restaurant. Food was great and price can't be beat. I had the Filet with fried rice and veggies. My husband had the House Special (shrimp and chicken). Even with our drinks and a tip, our meal was under $25....More

I've read the reviews on this restaurant and had to stop in.... Glad we did! I had the DAILY SPECIAL W/DRINK(Teriyaki Chicken and Hibachi Shrimp) and it was great. For the teriyaki fans--their teriyaki sauce is the thicker version, rather than the thinner, so I'd...More
