One thing that the US definitely has going for it is cheap, quick, tasty Chinese take-out. Ruby Chen is the one in my neighborhood, and we get it often. Egg fu-yung is tasty, General Tso's chicken is good, won-ton soup is excellent. Its no-frills, decent take out. I have never sat and eaten there, but you could. Its worth it... More

Have not been here in a while BUT I forget why I stopped going. The food was excellent as always. Decided to eat in, small eating area, but the food made up for that. Great place to eat in or order out. Since my office is nearby, this visit was a great reminder to start going again. Well done Ruby... More

Just got back from a cruise so ran down here to grab some takeout. We were staying in the Best Western and this is shown on their map of local restaurants. We both ordered the Lunch special which comes with either Pork fried rice or white rice and either soup or a soda. Since a Winn Dixie is just next... More

We order delivery or pick up from this restaurant at least twice a month. The food is always delicious and the pickup service is quick and nice.

I was staying at the Best Western overnight while waiting for a cruise leaving the next day. I like Chinese food so I was pleased to discover a Chinese Restaurant in the Southland Shopping Center which is within walking distance of the motel. I walked to the restaurant that evening. The restaurant is more of a takeout place than a... More

It is hard to find great Chinese food like what we are all used to in NYC, but it is possible. The shrimp rolls are awesome. A great take out spot but they do offer a few small tables for a quick nosh on site. Nothing fancy just good fresh foos.

Typical Chinese take-out in strip mall across the street from Holiday Inn Express Suites. Restaurant not geared for in house dining. Order for 4 completed in under 10 minutes. Hot and plentiful. Only draw back was shrimp egg roll had 1 small shrimp in it?

If you like Chinese food Ruby Chen's is a must. Portions were huge, couldn't finish all of mine. The menu was almost endless, taste was so good. Loved it so much!
