Simple take-out/restaurant. Clean simple atmosphere, good service. Food was fine for in-house dining, take out might not be as good.

The food is great and the couple that own are super friendly and enjoy having you. It is like eating at a Chinese couple's house. Fried Rice is the best in the area.
