Uncle Yu's has your typical Chinese food, with the mongolian beef, sezchuan chicken, sweet and sour pork, etc. The food is good, not great, and for the money, it is reasonably good.

This is our 3rd visit. In our area it’s the best Chinese food. Service is just ok. Not real warm. Yes they do the basics. So I took a star off for service. The honey walnut shrimp is a must try. The inner design is...More
