Title: Hibachi Express, Cedartown
Post by: Milt on March 15, 2011, 12:43:15 PM
Last Sunday evening, we were trying to find a place to eat in Cedartown.  The first place we tried, Taste of New Orleans, was out of business.  The second place wasn't open on Sunday evening.  We pulled into a parking lot to decide what to do when we noticed directly across the street was Hibachi Express in what was clearly an old Sonic Drive In.  There were several cars in the driveway, so we decided to give them a try.  We ordered the chicken and shrimp teriyaki ($8.99) and we were going to order another item when we were told that one order would be enough for both of us.  It turned out to be enough for both of us and my wife took the rest to work Monday for her lunch.

The food was very good.  We were amazed by how much take out business they did while we were there.  The menu carries many predictable Chinese offerings, plus several Japanese teriyaki choices.  Inside, it was easy to forget that we were in an old Sonic.  They have redone the interior to provide a decent size dining area - tile floor, etc.

Has anyone else eaten in Cedartown recently?  Has anyone else eaten at Hibachi Express?  They have been open almost four years, we were told.

I ate in Cedartown for the first time three weeks ago, driving back from my first skydrive. Wisely I did not eat breakfast that morning, which left me very hungry by 3pm, when I had finished the jump. On the return drive to Atlanta we stopped off at El Nopal Mexican Restaurant on Main Street, as they had several cars in the parking lot, which I took as a sign that they might offer good food. Not even thinking that we were in one of those odd county's, we ordered margaritas, only to find they did not serve alcohol on Sundays, not even beer, our second choice. Partner had a combo plate with one beef enchilada and one tamale, with beans and rice. Disappointingly, the beef was nondescript mince meat. I had a veggie quesadilla, with a side of guacamole. Which was flavorful, and not overly cheesy. Cost was under $20 with two ice tea. Meal served its purpose. I will keep an eye out for Hibachi Express when I return from my next jump.

Frankie's on the square in Rockmart is decent Italian out that way.
