We went for the first time with my daughter and son in law, who absolutely love this place. If you go, try to get one of the tables that do the show ~ it makes the whole experience worth it. A lot of choices (glad my daughter had been there and could help us decide) for each persons taste, but... More

In early September I went there for the first time, since then I have been there 3 more times. I love the food and the show they do while making the food. I also like their drink and alcohol selection.

I have been going here for years for birthdays. It is getting a little old but the food is always good. Just a bit pricey.

We had set lunches consisting of shrimp, steak, and chicken. Fried rice is excellent, as well as vegetables and the tepanyaki experience. The Chef was well experienced and fun.

We stopped in around 12:30pm for lunch and found the restaurant somewhat empty but they put us at a Hibachi Table even though we were just two people. The Chef was great entertaining us and cooking our shrimp and steak. Wonderful lunch, we even had a glass of wine. Service was also good and we tipped accordingly. Highly recommend you... More

What used to be Tepanyaki Japanesse face, now id full of good Mexican kids, doing their best on a fast-food Tepanyaki place.

I've visited Benihana at this location several times. However, during my recent dining experience the chef just completely skipped over the tricks. I did dine during the lunch hour, so maybe that played into forgoing the tricks. There were kids at our table, and I almost intervened on their behalf with a request for tricks. Any who, with that said,... More

We hadn't been to a Benihana in many years, but were so glad we picked this place. We love hibachi-style food and this was good. The menu has a ton of choices and it beats me how the chef kept everything straight. The chicken, shrimp, beef and scallops all went to the correct customers. I would say that the steak... More

I was introduced to Benihanas by my best friend from high school, as I had never been to one before. To say that it was a life changing event is a complete understatement, as when I lived in the Chicago area, I would be at this location literally every month (and sometimes even twice a month!!) Sadly, with my move... More
