Great place for lunch. Food is consistently excellent. Hot and sour soup is one of the best I have had anywhere. Friendly staff as well. Great value for your money. A must stop for lunch when I am in Dubuque.

I've been to Yen Ching many times, and I am always pleased! The service staff was friendly and helpful. The food itself is always good, they do a great chow mein! I would definitely recommend this place, it's a personal favorite.
