Above average food, casual atmosphere

Mostly Chinese menu options, well prepared. Takes only American Express or cash. Interior uninspired, but clean.

So the place seems to have an identity crisis. Doesn't mean it's a bad thing. But the restaurant looks like a 50's diner, has old time music playing, but burgers are on the international food menu? The main staple here is chinese food and also serves thai and japanese. Just a bit confusing. But the food quality is great and... More

We stopped in Englewood during a road trip last year. We were intrigued by the outside retro look of this restaurant and decided to stop and have lunch. We were very happy we did. Our group of three people had a variety of items, including grilled cheese, pastrami and a Chinese dish. We all had ice cream for dessert. The... More

Love this place. Retro diner-style interior that serves a mostly Chinese menu, with sushi, and some Thai mixed in. No worries if you have picky eaters though, they have an "international" menu that includes burgers, grilled cheese, and chicken & tuna salad. It's not your typical Chinese place for take out, with small & large sizes, so for take out... More

Share a plate of cold sesame noodles and order the sauteed vegetables In a light brown sauce or brown garlic sauce (I pick garlic) and you've got a pretty healthy meal and very reasonable. The Steamed Mixed Vegetables and Tofu With a white garlic sauce on the side is great too. So is Sauteed Chinese Spinach Lightly sauteed. Nice desserts... More

This is a step back in time to the old fashioned diners with a modern twist. It seems strange to have an ice cream parlor with Chinese food, but the combination works here and is great. The Asian food is excellent and so are the desserts. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

We primarily use for delivery which is prompt, the food is delicious and warm on arrival. Local secret is that the takeout portions are somewhat larger than eating in the restaurant. Only takes cash and American Express, which is ok with me.

I have frequented Baumgarts since the Late 70's......first as a 50's Diner, and then its addition of an Upscale Oriental Menue, and now an added Sushi Menu. As from the beginning of time, the Ice Cream Fountain of the 50's still remains with great ice cream sundaes and baked goods......The House Duck, Shrimp and Noodles, Steak & Noodles, and the...

Stopped in for the advertised homemade ice cream. From the butterfat content it did appear to be homemade, but it had an odd flavor, permeated with cleaning fluid. It also had that very old cardboard like taste. After a second bite, I threw my ice cream out. $5 down the drain!
