My daughter granddaughter and myself had lunch here today. We have been here in the past. The service was fast and friendly. As soon as they see you have kids with you they bring you out a little bowl of rice to keep them occupied/from starving. My daughter ordered chicken and shrimp lo mein and only thought it was OK...

I have been going to Lams since I moved out here in 2001 and it has never failed to have great Chinese at an affordable price. Last might I ordered the special steamed noodles, my daughter ordered the special Lo Mein, & my son ordered the Special Fried Rice and it all tasted amazing. Great Job you guys!

Lam's is nestled away off the beaten track. It offers unique dishes not offered else where in the area. Service is good and portions are generous. A café/diner type atmosphere with friendly service.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this place before! We go there often and it's very close to our house. The owners are so very friendly. It's real food and prices are great! Locally owned . . . not a chain! Service is usually pretty fast even when there is a full house.

Have been all over the world and picked up a taste for good Asian food. So much of it is lackluster. Lam's is off the beaten path in small town America but is among the best Chinese food I've had here in the states. The portions are always more than I can eat, the staff is wonderful and the prices... More

Delicious food and the nicest people I have ever met. Great price and very fresh high quality food. We eat here at least 2 times a month. Our twin girls love this place.

This restaurant serves a pretty much standard american-chinese menu. What sets it apart is the freshness of the ingredients, the fact that they do not drown the food in their sauces, that spicy is, actually spicy, and the friendliness of the owners and staff. I have now eaten here twice and have been very pleased with my meals. While it... More

Great prices. Great service. Great food! I love their luncheon specials; their prices can't be beat! I walk in, they remember what I drink. Very personal service.
