Teriyaki Park

Reviews (11)

I love this place. When I first started coming here almost 3 yrs ago I would never of thought i would ever like sushi. yes i work here but thats beside the point. i truely love the food. the fish is always fresh cause we get deliverys twice a week of it. and its not made till you order. only thing i dislike is some of the peoplewho go here think there at a big chain restaurant. we are just a small family run place. the owners are the greatest and are very hands on.
so before you come out to visit just remember we do get very busy sometimes for lunch and dinner. so sometimes you have to wait a whole minute. thank you for all the love that yall show us and we do have a facebook.

New lunch specials
I have always enjoyed the Teriyaki chicken lunch special, but they now also feature two sushi specials for $7.99 (drink not included). Each special includes three 5-piece rolls; I couldn't finish it all and took the leftovers to-go. It's a lot of tasty food for a good price.

Low-carb choices - just axe the rice
I don't eat rice, but I had a delicious bulgogi (Korean bbq) with a side salad that was plenty filling without all the starch. The dish came with stir-fried bell pepper strips and slices of zucchini, and the seasoning was tasty without being too saucy.

Good enough?
Most reviews I see for Teriyaki Park are full of disclaimers and excuses about Waco being too small to support 'good sushi'. So lets really be honest - mediocre food is mediocre regardless where it gets served. Teriyaki Park serves average quality sushi. It isn't terrible, but it isn't really great either. The people are nice, so that's a plus. The real deal breaker is how dirty the place is. The last 2 times I've eaten there have been terrible. Dead roaches on the floor (at least they are dead right?), rotten food stuck in the cracks and underneath the tables (don't spill your drink unless you want to be covered with spoiled food runoff).

I am a big supporter of local business, and I want to like Teriyaki Park, but it isn't healthy to exempt a restaurant from cleanliness standards just because its local.

First Choice Sushi in Town
I moved here recently from Fort Worth and I had been to Teriyaki Park a couple times before doing so. This place is nice and fairly inexpensive. The sushi at Teriyaki Park is pretty much standard fare. It is not bad in the least. If you go here, though, make sure that after your sushi or entree that you order some green tea ice cream.
The green tea ice cream is light and sweet with a nice earthy taste from the tea. Eating this delicious dish is not at all like eating vanilla or chocolate ice cream. The green tea ice cream looks amazing too. The green of the ice cream matches the walls so well. I would not be surprised if they went in with an order of their ice cream to a paint store to get it matched.
Teriyaki park has a nice small shop feel to it and the staff is friendly. I would recommend this sushi shop to any of my Fort Worth friends passing through town.

I miss random trips to T-Park so much!
When I recently caught up with one of my friends from Baylor, one of the first things I told her was "we should go to T-Park the next time we're both in Waco!" Teriyaki Park is somehow inseparable from my Baylor experience, partially because large chunks of the film department often ended up there for lunch.

Teriyaki Park quick, tasty and decent. It's leaps and bounds better than the sushi on Baylor's campus and only a short drive away. All the rolls are made to order, so they were able to work with my strong dislike of avocado.

I have been stuck living in the middle of nowhere for a while and the two things I miss the most are taco trucks and quick sushi take-out. Teriyaki Park was the latter, and I never left unhappy there. Try the other things on the menu, too. The tempura and yaki gyoza are quite delicious.

Let's Be Honest
Waco does not have the customer base for a "real" or "good" sushi place. (Although I've seen smaller college towns support better sushi, but whatever.) However, the service and general consistency of Teriyaki Park make it a good choice for a quick, light-ish (depending on whether one gets the Waco Roll), and affordable meal.

"I've had better."
When it comes to Teriyaki Park, I hear a lot of people say "I've had better." Guess what? So have I. In Austin. And Dallas. For much more money.

Waco is not a sushi town, period. It would be great to find a place that had consistently good fish at a reasonable price, but we have yet to prove we can allow such a place to survive. That is not what Teriyaki Park tries to be, and thank goodness. I can walk in with ten bucks, walk out well fed, and I'm done. If I want to blow $100, I'll gladly go to Steel in Dallas or Piranha in Fort Worth. When I want a tasty, cheap lunch, TP suits me fine.

The Go-to quick sushi
The main reason TP is successful is their location and the people are nice.

Not the freshest sushi or best price, but it's always my go-to place in Waco for sushi when I don't want to sit down at one of the japanese steakhouses.

Great, fast sushi
Teriyaki Park can't really compete with high-end sushi eateries, but I don't think that was ever their intent. What Teriyaki Park does offer is quick, fresh, good-quality rolls, sushimi, and teriyaki and udon plates. They have great, simple rolls from about $6, but some can cost as much as $14. If we're talking sushi dollars, that's a 99 cent value menu. Despite the price, I've eaten there pretty often since they opened in 2005, and I've never been served bad fish. They're Teriyaki Lunch is also a good deal, but the chicken can sometimes be a little dry.

Check them out
It is right by Baylor and Cameron park so it is close to my school.
They are this cute tiny place between Wild West and Wing Stop - it's great for lunch and you can watch them make your food. The sauces are wonderful and there is made to order sushi.
Some stuff is pricey on a college budget but it is worth the trip.
