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.

Passing through Salinas en route to LA, stopped here for a quick dinner. It was quick. It was delicious. Very Very good chinese food with people who really care about your satisfaction. Not cheap, but good.

This is like so many other "Chinese" places that primarily feature "safe" choices for the US palate; understandable, especially because they are in a small conservative town with few Chinese-Americans (look into Salinas' history on that one!) Large menu, zany-fast service, run-down atmosphere - but, for the cuisine they've settled on, nicely done.

I had spent years looking for good oriental food and was always disappointed until this place opened. The staff is friendly and genuine. The food is so good, and they will prepare special orders as well. They even deliver!!!! I love this place

We get take out food regularly and it is always fresh, hot and tasty. Also, it is usually ready in 10 minutes. We especially like the dragon special eggplant with shrimp and chicken. Also, the crispy duck is vert good. The ambiance of the restaurant itself is rather cavernous and unwelcoming which is what we do take out.

Eagle is one of our favorite restaurants, for more than twenty years. Eagle is clean and comfortable, the staff is courteous friendly and knowledgable, the menu is wide and the food is great. I'm picky about my Chinese food and they have never let me down!

There is no atmosphere at this restaurant but it is clean and the food is terrific! The wonton soup actually has a couple of filled in it along with crunchy veggies. We have had many of the dishes here and have never had one that wasn't great.

Very good value, quick service during work day lunch hour. Includes tea, soup, entree w/ white or stir fried rice (very plain) or or upgrade to chow mein noodles or brown rice for a buck. The eggplant dishes are amazing as is the Eagle Special. Actually I've liked everything I've tried. Eat here about 2-3 times a month as I... More

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
