This place has lots of variety. Every time I am in Hoover this is where I eat. They have cheap Chinese food and lots of other items. They will cook to order if you need it.

Food really isn't very bad. Carpet and overall appearance needs to be renewed. You can tell a herd of people have been through. Nothing to write home about and a bit pricey.

Clean and well-stocked with a nice variety of fresh foods. The staff was courteous and attentive. Dinner hours are probably the best time to visit.
