This is a quaint little restaurant that has been in the community for years! The food is good and the quantity is great. You definitely get your monies worth. The lunch special is the best value.

This restaurant has been around since the 1970's. We always go for the lunch cafeteria style 3 item plate. Everything we have tried us good. Reasonably priced.

I have eaten here a few times, but always at lunch - when you get your food cafeteria style from the steam table. Good selection, but a steam table is a steam table – dependent on how busy they are as to how fresh your food will be. Can’t say I have ever had a bad experience, but what I... More

Over the years, I have gone to the restaurant on the border of the MTSU campus. I mainly go for the lunch where you pick a couple of items and then either rice or noodles. I especially like the cashew chicken, the roast pork, and general's chicken. That being said, I only give it an average rating because of how... More

I have grown up in Murfreesboro all of my life and Far East was always a hidden jewel in town. The food was outstanding.In recent years, though, it has gone very downhill. The interior of the restaurant has not changed since I was a child in the 1980's. When you order, it is often wrong and the staff act as... More

A must see in the Boro. General Tso is the best in America ! The small cafeteria style lunch is the best as you can get a variety. I lived away for two years and have yet to find anything close to comparison. Don't let the outside fool you.
