Older building, well maintained. Hidden gem. Good, solid food. Have been coming here for over 30 years. Excellent service. Friendly staff. You can order off menu with no problem. Their shrimp fried rice and egg drop soup are a must have.

Also very good is the Hot and Sour soup including the Noodle soup. They also have Mexican food which is delicious too.
