Blue Gibbon is a go-to for people at our office. I've been dozens of times over the past 10 years. You can get soup and a entree for around $6. The quality of the food is typical of a Chinese carryout, except for the hot...More

We've never had a bad experience at the Blue Gibbon. It was a nice surprise in an area we weren't familiar with. Not far from I-75. They have a large menu that even pleases the vegan husband with a crispy tofu dish, among other choices...More

Our family has been coming here for years and hopefully many years to come! The spicy green beens are delicious and has the best tofu. Is off the beaten path but well worth it to try. You will soon become a regular.

Blue Gibbon has excellent take-out. I drive farther to go here because the food is good, portion sizes are large. Excellent!!

good prices for lunch, your typical chinese takeout food. We typically order 20 minutes ahead and pick up. If you have an hour lunch though, you could probably make it for dine-in.
