“The new "fresh made" to replace the buffet is awesome!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014

The building is an old A&W...kind of rundown...decor needs updating...but the owners and the food they make are great.

“Great little restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

I love this place! My family has been going here for years and the food is always amazing! Take-out orders are always hot and fresh, and don't take very long to get ready. The only down side to this place is that the interior is horribly outdated and ugly, however, don't let that stop you from trying this place!

“Specializing in greasy fried food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2012

We got a variety of dishes for takeout, and the common theme was grease. Seems like their philosophy is "you can only improve a thing when you deep fry it." My relatives who live here like the chow mien, but I couldn't take too much of anything from here.
