Hot Food Express sells a weird cajun/asian fusion. If you want it, its likely on the menu. I tried numerous items and everything was delicious. Their motto on the chalk board is something like 'We neither sell nor serve any frozen crap' or something like that. Eat here when you get the chance simply because it is great food passionately...

Loaded on a bed of Shrimp fried rice.The spice is right on and loaded with flavor. The tomato's soak up the curry spice and they explode in your... More

I am part indian and i love food like this but i have to say the fried rice has too much onions in it doesn't taste good. I must say the fried chicken is incredible. Kids i would not bring because of the atmosphere.

We have driven by this place 1000 times and always said let's go there sometime. Today for lunch we finally went and it will not be the last time. The people behind the counter were very nice, the food was fresh cooked and tasted very good. I found the price for the catfish to be a little on the high... More

My friend took me to Hot Food Express for my birthday. The service was pleasant. Food was prepared quickly. The amount of food served was enough for lunch and dinner. Had plenty to share.

I stumbled upon Hot Food Express after noting that day after day, the cars over-flowed. When they put a sign up that the neighbors lot was now additional parking - could there be a more obvious recommendation? Had the daily special, Catfish Filet w/their special Shrimp Fried Rice, Cajun Fries but skipped the Salad and Bread (had them leave it... More
