Many locals decide to stop here after hiking at the local spot, and we can't think of a better way to get your energy back up. The tacos that are served here are just like the ones you receive from street vendors in Mexico, so authenticity is the name of the game. The salsas really bring the food together here, as they're spicy with just the right kick. You know that you're getting the real deal here by the thin sour cream and the white crumbled cheese on top of the tacos.

Hibachi and Company is a Japanese restaurant in Lillington gets an A+ rating from both us and the locals who love to dine out in the area. The waitresses here are happy to go through the menu with you and make recommendations off of it. The crab rangoons here are fried to perfection! The kids meal selection is impressive with both Japanese and American options. If you're a fan of bourbon, the Yummy Chicken goes above and beyond. We love the different sauces that they give out with all of the meals, one is a spicy mayonnaise and one is a sweet soy sauce.
