    There's not a single thing about this place that's fancy. It's about going there and getting some good food fast and inexpensively. The staff is friendly and the food is good. The portions are enormous if you ask me. It's a good place to get your grub on and be on your way.
    I didn't even know it existed until a friend pointed it out today and we had our lunch there.

    Second worse won ton soup I've ever had. That's not saying much because the worst was made with frozen mixed vegetables. Broth tasted odd and slightly burnt. Broth was very dark, no green onions or anything else. Wontons were over-boiled noodles. Slightly resembled wontons, but not by much. They weren't filled with anything. Rangoons were not horrible, but not that good. The place looked a little greasy. Ugly atmosphere, but that can be overlooked if the food is good. The lady that took the order was very nice.

    Food was freshly cooked and piping hot! I had Combo 3 with Hot and Spicy Chicken. The sauce was fantastic and meat crispy on outside and tender on inside. I chose the dark and light meat for variation. Crab Rangoon is not the sickly sweet type. Egg roll is hand rolled in house and tastes MUCH better than some other restaurants. I had the steamed rice and not fried. Rice is low quality standard fare, however. They should switch to jasmine rice and the whole meal would be superior. Still I would recommend for American Chinese food if you have a choice.

    Food poisoning is a never welcome presence, and I dearly wish I'd told the staff this before they served me tainted meat. If you're ordering cashew chicken, no worries. They sell it quickly enough for it not to go bad. But if you dare venture to the other items on the menu, be wary. They are too cheap to toss out things that are out of date and will unabashedly serve them to any unwitting patron. Sure, the staff is nice enough, but I will never understand this state's fascination with throwing soy sauce in brown gravy and calling it cashew chicken. It's disgusting- you know you're just eating a soy and rice edition of KFC, right?

    My husband wanted to go there, so I went through the drive thru for him. Check out the overstuffed wonton I snuck a pic of.

    Stayed the night here during lent and was looking for a good non meat option.  I ordered the shrimp fried rice with extra bean sprouts and onions.  They did it up perfectly and what generous portions.  I order a small and got enough fir two...but it was so good, I forced myself to eat it all.   Highly recommend this place.
