This place has been a long time favorite forever. Within the last couple years they have remodeled and now not just the food is great but the atmosphere is more inviting as a sit down option. The special is my favorite. You get a portion that's just right for you entree item, fried rice, soup, crab Rangoon, and egg roll.... More

This place has great Sizzlin Rice Soup. My husband and I love going here for a quick bite to eat and not having to spend too much on our food. And the food is always good. Would recommend this to everyone.

Went in with 13 people per trip advisor's recommendation... Cash or check only. We all happened to have checks but we are from Omaha... So our out of town check was unacceptable as well. Boo... Starving after a long car ride and we walked out took our money elsewhere.
