A great Restaurant with no MSG added. The sweet items (like Sweet and sour pork, or orange chicken) are just the right balance of sweet and spicy. Easily the best Chinese food in Salinas.

Best in Salinas

Love this place. Food is literally the best Chinese in Salinas. Owners are always friendly and welcoming. They've remembered my name for years even though I only come in about once per month. I've never had a bad meal here. Food is always fresh and quick.

We enjoyed a tasty lunch at the Eagle. There were lots of menu choices, reasonably priced, including vegetarian options. The portions were pleasingly seasoned -- and ample. When we saw a group of local cops enter and sit down, we figured we had picked the right place for sure! This restaurant has no atmosphere, and I suspect nothing has been... More

Stopped in for takeout and ordered general tso's chicken with a side of shrimp fried rice, was disappointed that there was no dinner combos but the food was very good.

Try the sesame beef, hunan chicken and lemongrass chicken. We love going here. Sometimes you need to park around the corner, but it's still worth it!

Discovering The Eagle Restaurant happened thanks to a very hungry 8-year old granddaughter and a wife who insists on trying "new places" when traveling. And what a lucky find this is --- beyond delicious. The Eagle has been in the same spot for decades in the sleepy downtown of Salinas, California as you meander your way back from Monterey Bay...

The charm of the Eagle Chinese Restaurant is it's lack of pretension. They serve basic, well-prepared Chinese food in a basic, clean, and friendly environment. You won't find anything exotic there, but that's not what they do. You will find plentiful, good tasting basic Chinese food at decent prices.

Chinese food can be hit or miss. Sometimes the soup tastes like it was put through the dishwasher first and sometimes the vegetables are limp and overcooked (or under dish-washed). This place was a delight. The chicken wings were some of the best I've had; crispy but not over battered or over fried. The ginger beef had sensational flavor with... More

We stopped in Salinas for 2 nights and ordered from the restaurant. This was some of the best Chinese food we have ever had. The food was very fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The portions were huge, and so we have decided to eat the rest at our hotel tomorrow night.
