I've enjoyed going to Uncle Yu's for lunch several times. The menu is extensive and the food is fresh and flavorful. The portions are large and often I take my leftovers home. Uncle Yu's has a full bar, as well. The servers are patient, too....More

Best Chinese restaurant for high quality food, great service and good prices. More Americanized than authentic for some, but the food is so good, I go all the time. Talk to the waiters if you would like something other than the menu offerings, they always...More
