I had the veggie Lo Mein and my husband got the chicken Lo Mein. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner but it is a little pricey. $16 for 2 quarts of Lo Mein.

We stopped in here on a road trip. Our order came quickly and was fresh. I would highly recommend the crab Rangoon. Yummy! Restaurant was clean and food was upper quality Chinese food.

The employees are super friendly. I love the orange chicken and the pepper steak, plus so many other items. Wide variety menu. Pictures on the walls depicting many of their dishes if you are not familiar with Chinese cuisine.

Conveniently located across from a slew of hotels, the food is typical of what you would expect at an American Chinese restaurant. My daughter loved her won ton soup. The servings were large, the prices were average. The taste and quality were good. The man...More
