My wife and I are in staying on the north side of Columbus for a few days and were wondering if there were any good places to get hibachi steak around town... Not necessarily 5 star/50 dollar a plate, but just good quality, clean and somewhat affordable. We're from Atlanta and love eating at the Orient Express in Smyrna (like a Benihana, I guess, but way better and just a tad more expensive) and I'm starting to wonder if we'll find a place up here that compares as far as quality/value go.
We're also planning on checking out some somewhat-cheap, decent quality mexican food. The place we're used to in Atlanta is real cheap but real authentic too, so I was hoping to find something along those lines while I was up here. A friend said that El Vaquero is pretty good (although it may be too chain-ey and tex-mex for our tastes) and also recommended El Adobe (which I can't even find online, except for Adobe Gila's @ Easton?). I saw someone mention La Fogota Grill in another thread, I'm thinking of checking them out and anywhere else I see that looks good (we really like mexican food). It seems like Chile Verde gets good reviews on other sites so I was considering going by there as well.
Any suggestions you guys have for good places to get some hibachi steak (or decent Mexican) would be greatly appreciated. We're considering moving up here so we'd like to get a good idea of what we'd be in for food-wise.
