My wife went to school around this area and the Eatery has been a place to go for cheap eat out for students. I've been eating here whenever I have a chance. It's cheap and I love their fired chicken and fried rice.

While on my quest to find the top most authentic gourmet Chinese cuisine in RVA, I stumbled across this place. Did The Eatery pass the test? Read more to find out. The Good: Variety- I have been to a number of Americanized Chinese restaurants, but this is the first that offers EVERYTHING. In addition to the regular Americanized Chinese food... More

The sauce is awesome too. If you're looking for atmosphere and service, you're at the wrong place. Zero atmosphere and... More

This is a great to get good take out since they have chinese food and american food as well. The prices are usually $10.00 or lower depending on what you want to order. They also run lunch specials - some around $5.00 or less. This Eatery manages to stay in business where other restaurants bite the dust. It's a Cary... More

Good value, zero atmosphere, matter of fact service, popular takeout with local shop keepers and residents. Look for the hand lettered special signs taped to the windows, usually fried chicken with fried rice. Order it and enjoy some amazingly delicious fried chicken. I've tried many times to duplicate the recipe at home with no success. It is golden yellow, mildly... More

The chicken tasted like it was double breaded and double or refried. It was really really tough. I could not eat a few of the pieces they were so hard . I... More
