We were traveling south on I-75 and had a craving for Chinese food. Got off at the Richmond exit and stumbled upon Fong's. Super friendly family run place. No frills atmosphere I think the building is an old KFC. The food was excellent! Fresh veggies, perfectly cooked shrimp, tasty sauces. Would have rated a 5 except for the old in... More

I stopped in Fong's from out of town. I ordered chicken lo mein and szechwan chicken. The lo mein was some of the best I have ever tasted and the egg rolls were pretty good. I didn't care much for the szechwan chicken, but I think it was just personal taste. the service was great and you can tell the... More

Good food, friendly service. The chicken is yummy white meat. Very well trimmed. This would probably not bother most people, but I wish they would use more veggies and less meat. That's just me, though!

The people who own this restaurant are so friendly-- but we just can't handle the food anymore. The fried rice is dark brown and way overcooked. My kids love lo-mein, but this one is so salty that they wouldn't even eat it. I usually order a vegetable dish, which is OK. It's definitely inexpensive, but now if we want Chinese... More

Best Chinese food in Richmond and great prices too. I eat at Fong's whenever I'm in town. It's definitely the best for the value, has great service and it's very clean too.

I just opened an order of chicken fried rice from this place here in my hotel room. What's with these chunks of psuedo chicken stuff they have in here? It has the consistancy of chicken feather flavored styrofoam and doesnt taste much like chicken meat at all. The rice is basicly well prepared but why do they ruin it with... More

Don't the atmosphere make up your mind. There aren't many signs that this is going to be genuine--let alone good--Chinese food. But it is on both counts.

I ordered take-out from this place and took the food back to my hotel room. It stunk up our room, tasted awful, and after I saw an enormous roach crawl out of the paper take-out sack, I wished I hadn't eaten any of it at all! Hurl!

I have had some less-then-wonderful Chinese food in my life, but this one tops them all. The good part was it was hot (heat hot, not spicy hot), even when we got it back to our hotel room, relatively chaep, and quickly prepared. The bad part was that the food was bad, all of it. The fried rice was the... More
