Nice location on Main St. Eat-in or carry out. We enjoy several of their dishes. Fast service. We like Sweet & Sour Chicken and their fried rice.

We have had lunches, dinners, and take-out from this small eatery many, many times, and have never once been disappointed. We especially enjoy the very reasonably priced, and filling lunch combo specials. Don't miss the hot and sour soup.
