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.

General Tso's Chicken is good

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.

not fancy, but good casual dining experience. Food always good and very reasonably priced. Lunch specials are great.

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.

During our time in Salinas, we stumbled upon Eagle Restaurant. Me and my husband love Chinese food so we thought we would give it a shot. We ordered Char Siu Bao, pan fried and steamed dumplings for starters and we shared our Beef Chow Fun entrée. The food was wonderful! Reminds me of the time when I was in Hawaii... More

It's not very WOW in decor nor does it have overly outgoing staff but the food is GREAT. I love the lemon grass chicken and sizzling rice soup.
