We ordered take out food as this was our nearest Chinese restaurant but we will never go back . The food was mediocre but the real ruination was the bland sauces that accompanied the dishes of sweet & sour chicken and curry ... we couldn't even describe how bad the luminous red so called sweet and sour sauce tasted but...

Finally, Chinese food with great flavor! The restaurant looks like your typical strip mall restaurant, but the food definitely sets it apart. There's plenty to choose from on the menu but my favorite is the Hunan chicken!!

If you're looking for cheap, quick lunch, this is your place. The service is very quick and the portions are large. Nothing amazing but really, decent Chinese food.

Went for a late lunch. The restaurant is in a strip mall and the front is rather unimpressive. My boyfriend and I joked that "it has to be safe as inspection sticker updated Dec 2014." Once past the dark and dusty wood screens by the bar, the main dining space is very nice. There is a mix of booths and... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years. The service is wonderful. The staff knows your name, name of your children, etc. It is family owned and operated, the owner seems to be on site most of the time. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated. The menu changes ever so often and new recipes are added. They want... More

Let me tell you right away that this restaurant has passed Department of Health inspection with green sticker(excellent). Don't listen to that person who complaint about restaurant being closed earlier. You gotta understand that couple blocks to the East is the real ghetto and obviously owners are afraid to robbed if they stay open late. And the person who complaint... More

I recently had dinner with a business partner and since he and I were both hungry and kinda in a hurry we figured we would stop at Billy Lee's since it was in the area. Well, once the bill came I was a little shocked at the total for our meal. Now don't get me wrong I make a pretty... More

After attending a local swim meet, five of us arrived at Billy Lee's. The time was 8:45pm. The sign in front said "Open" and the posted hours were 11:00am - 9:30pm. We entered the restaurant with high anticipation. And hunger! However, we were told by the man behind the counter that the dining room was closed. The only thing he... More
