Great place to take guests for dinner or lunch. My choices for menu selections are the wor wonton soup which is delicious If I'm not in the mood for soup I get the chicken mandarin salad, also muy delicioso. Great service, selection and atmosphere.

I only ever eat the wor wonton soup but I understand that the burgers and ribs are good too. It is famous for it's huge burger with a pound of meat, a tomatoe, a head of lettuce, etc.
