If you are in the mood for hibachi style Japanese food but don't have time for the dinner & a show restaurant, Atami is a quick and easy way to feed your craving. Hibachi chicken, steak, and shrimp are good choices and your take out order comes in a styrofoam box with a large portion of fried rice and several sweetend carrots. The sautéed broccoli is a tasty side dish. Definitely not fancy, but a good choice for nights after work when you don't want to cook. Don't be fooled by the drive thru though, it's definitely not FAST food and you will wait 15 minutes or so if there are more than a few cars in line.

If you love Japanese food but don't need the entertainment of a hibachi chef, this is the place for you. You can see the chef cooking behind a counter, but you are better off eating here with your eyes closed anyway. The atmosphere reminds me of an elementary school classroom with the uncomfortable chairs and the occasional paper lantern. The food, however, is great! There is always a crowd here. The people who don't like the atmosphere (did I mention you have a great view of Wal-Mart?) form a long line for take out. Try the hibachi shrimp or vegetable dish. The glazed carrots are perfect and the rice is just as good as the fancy Japanese restaurants. Atami also has wonderful shrimp (white) sauce.
