We love going to a Japanese Hibachi place and love the show we get as our food is cooked right in front of us. While visiting Myrtle Beach, we were intrigued by the Hibachi Houses that looked less like the fancy steakhouse restaurants we are used to and more like fast food type places. They have drive thru windows. Drive Thru Hibachi Houses. Say what?
JimmyZ Hibachi is what we were recommended on the main strip filled with seafood restaurants and pancake houses. JimmyZ sits on a corner without a sign so it can be easy to pass by (the sign looked like it was wiped out by a storm and never replaced.)
It’s a counter service place where you order your food and have it delivered to your table. Chad and I both went for the 2 meat or seafood dinner combinations ($12.25.)
I ordered Scallops and Tuna and all dinner plates are served with fried rice and Hibachi veggies. It was amazing. While I didn’t get the soup and salad you will get a fancier full service Hibachi house, I had more than enough food to fill me up. The scallops were plump and the tuna was cooked to a perfect medium rare by request.
Chad got Mahi Mahi and Salmon. These weren’t little pieces of fish- these were two full size fillets piled onto a mound of fried rice with onions, zucchini and broccoli.
Also on the side we were given a spicy mayo sauce and hot sauce (and I mean hot sauce.) We visited many restaurants during our stay in Myrtle Beach and this was one of our favorites.
There are also daily specials and separate lunch menu.
The meals at dinner are certainly more expensive than at lunch, however, the portions were big enough for dinner and lunch the next day.
