I had another bad experience at Uncle Chen recently. Not one of my favorite places by far. Unfortunately, they do not have a lot of competition in the Chinese cooking category.

Uncle Chen's is very reliable for good Chinese food . We like to order the special fried rice with lobster and take it home but the general menu is good and always consistent. Good service and a nice quiet atmosphere.
