Someone I used to work with recommended City Lights to us when we moved here 11 years ago. The place is never crowded, which worried me. I need not have been concerned. Their take-out is a major part of their business, I guess. The food is wonderful! Try the pineapple chicken; it is so good!!!

The order is normally ready 10 minutes after phoning int. The lunch menus are varied and very inexpensive- under $7.

The food here was decent. It was a little dry, which is surprising, given the amount of sauce dishes usually have. Outside of that, flavor wasn't bad.
