 Yes, many of you will laugh at me, but freakin love eating the Japanese hibachi-style chicken with rice and vegetables (which is grossly over-priced).  Most of the recipes I've found are horribly wrong ("it's just rice with soy sauce!"....um, no).

Is it basically a teriyaki sauce or simply soy sauce with sugar?

or,

are you talking about a grilled chicken rice bowl, like at "yoshinoya" or "panda express"?

Thanks for the links.  No, are you familiar with the hibachi grills?  It's basically a show around a flat grill.  The food isn't anything special, I just like the sauce that goes on the fried rice.  All the recipes are saying that it's soy sauce but that isn't all.

 flat grill could be a teppan grill,  cooking style would be teppanyaki, often with a showboating, chef, ala Benihana

 

they will often use a yakiniku sauce, kinda like a bbq marinade for beef and chicken, i wonder if if is that

Yep, you're right.  Your links for the yakiniku recipe look like they may yield the right taste.  I have yet to try it.  Thanks!
