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 Street staple. I love this place.

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 seasoned, perfectly crispy and very well priced under $5.

Ate here this week. We ordered orange chix and general tso chix . Came with fried rice and decent eggrolls with shrimp in them . Total was $18. 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 would not eat here again or recommend. This place serves a lot of American diner style greasy spoon food too. Never tasted that though.
