“Absolutely the best deal and food around”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

I have eaten at this restaurant since I was in college in the early 80s and it was called the Eggroll Station. They have gotten more items on the menu and remodeled but it is still the same family running it and cooking and the food remains incredible. The eggrolls are hard to describe as to why they are the absolute best but I have never tasted their equal as i have travelled around the country. The portions are extremely generous and the price is incredibly reasonable. You will see diners from workmen in overalls to Senators in suits. There are not a lot of frills but what matters to me is the quality of the food and here, that has always been exceptional no matter what I order. Do not miss eating here.

“Best take-out Chinese and a pick-up window "yes!"”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

Best take-out chinese close to Fort Jackson.

They have an online menu, you can call ahead and pick up your order via their drive-thru pick-up window.

Their portion sizes are very generous and the price is very affordable (good match).

They are very friendly and the interior is very clean and nice :)

“Very Yummy”
Reviewed 18 May 2011

This restuarant has a nice setting. A lot of chairs for you to sit and eat at. They also have a drive thru. Or you can stand at the counter and watch them cook. I always get the House Special for $7 and that's 3 wings, egg roll, drink, and fried rice. Their prices are a little on the high side like most meals being $7-9 but the food is abundant. I usually eat twice off a plate. I see several other dishes that i'm hoping to try but that's it for right now. They have ample parking and easy access to the restaurant.

“Quick, cheap, delicious!”
Reviewed 21 February 2011

I've been eating at this place since high school and I have to say it's still the best in Columbia. It underwent enormous renovations years ago and now it the best of the best. There are tons of meals to choose from. Come hungry, or you might have to share. The portions they give you are enough for two meals!
