Service is POOR! If you don't want any specific items in your fish I.e. allergy to peppers you will talk to 2-3 people about it and your food will take longer (they will tell you that). It took longer to order than it did to prepare my food. Only come if you are patient.

We have eaten at Pagoda for many years, including the previous location. We usually get take out as the new location is small for eating in. We have many favorites on the menu including the fried rice, beef and peapods, chicken and broccoli, and lemon chicken.

I visit this lunch spot weekly, the price is good and the food is always spot on. A married couple own and operate this place, so quality is king to them!

The Beef with Peapods and their Firecracker Shrimp are wonderful. The fried rice is very good. Can't speak to anything else but we plan to go back again soon to try some other dishes, since these were excellent.

Since a child, I have always loved Chow Mein. I now live in Nebraska and they make it quite different. I always stop here to get take out when I am visiting family. Try their barbeque pork and the chicken chow mein. You will not be disappointed.

My husband and I first discovered Pagoda five years ago. We had just moved back to the area and were anxious to try out some of the local haunts. When we were seated we asked the waitress about the most "authentic" meals on the menu. She tartly replied that the menu did not offer anything authentic, that the menu was... More

This is the best greasy Chinese place around. That said, they are still a greasy Chinese place. Service is good. Take-out orders are ready fast.
