Five Yelpers give Teriyaki Boy Healthy Grill an average of four stars:
- The chicken was perfectly cooked and the veggies were great just enough crisp in them. I loved the fact that they gave me two little cups of the sauce to add as needed. I used both! I thought the sauce tasted great, good mix of sweet and salt. – Kelley R., 12/29/10
- The meats are above average quality. They have a great selection. The people are really nice and remember you. – Doug A., 8/24/10
Teriyaki Boy Healthy Grill
Teriyaki Boy serves up health-friendly eats that integrate Japanese and Chinese influences without the use of oil or MSG. Their cooks grill or bake shrimp, tofu, Angus steak, or chicken before tossing them into teriyaki bowls or teriyaki wraps, which bring together the proteins with rice and vegetables. Tender filets of salmon and mahi mahi also make an appearance in bowls with rice or soba noodles. Morsels of Mongolian beef, sesame orange chicken, or sweet and sour pork broaden the flavor spectrum alongside sips of boba smoothies.
