Wow, this is pretty upsetting. I loved Hibachi Hut and it was always crowded when we went in, though I didn’t like the most recent renovation where they removed the bar and made the floorplan more integrated with Texas Star (which I never cared for). I’ll be trying to new place when (if?) it opens downtown.
The only mural I ever remember in there was the big black and white picture of people fishing in a swamp. Loved the old building though, the ceilings and those old 1950s booths, and that really old light-up board to notify waitstaff when their orders were ready. I think that broke back in the 90s and they never fixed it, though. I hope this taco place doesn’t change much inside.
