So while the decor will be nothing to write home about and things are a bit dated, it is all made up for by the food and the entertainment. These guys do a great job and made the entire experience a lot of fun.

We ate here on our latest trip to the area. The food was good, our hibachi cook was very entertaining, and the price wasn’t bad. The restaurant itself seemed a bit disheveled and run down, though. Not the best, but not bad.

We arrived at this place and was advised it would be a few minutes. We were seated in a large, open dining room with several hibachi style grills/tables. I noted a portable heater near where we entered and a shop style "jet" kerosene heater at...More
