Wifey wanted to try this nearest Chinese place to us, but we should have trusted my own instinct since we already have a go-to place we like. The one thing this place has going for it is quantity of food for the price. For about...More

Good food with nice selection and the kids love it ! The chow mein and lo mein are their favorites. We have had a number of other dishes and they are all good. Not spicy for some pallets.

Years ago a former boss taught me that some of the best places to eat don't look like much on the outside, and they may be lacking in fancy decor on the inside. However, the food speaks (loudly) for itself. He said to pay attention...More
