Stopped in after the Nor'easter dropped 16" of snow on MAINE. I ordered sweet and sour chicken, which was fresh, served scalding hot, and delicious. The only criticism is that the fried chicken pieces were a bit oily still. I wrapped them in paper towel...More

Everything we ordered was great and they give you a lot of it! We couldn't eat it all so we took the rest home for lunch the next day. Good value overall.
