Just stopped in one Saturday afternoon seeking something gluten-free. And there they were, these lovely small cupcakes. Tasty. According to their board more gluten-free items put in an appearance on Tuesday. Good to know.

Love this place. Family owned and operated. Very clean. Food is always fresh and consistent. The green pepper steak is amazing. The crab rangoon and egg rolls are awesome too. Very inexpensive and great portion sizes. Highly recommended. Only place I go for Chinese.
