Taiwanese Beef Noodle Not Authentic At All

Tried the dumplings and the Taiwanese Beef Noodle. The dumplings were pretty good but the Taiwanese Beef Noodle was not authentic at all. Still, service was friendly, price was good and there were plenty of Chinese customers. So, I guess this is not that bad.

We've struggled to find a decent Chinese restaurant in Columbia and Eggroll Chen came highly recommended. The service was slow… a couple of employees chatted with each other and then with a customer they knew for several minutes and completely ignored us. The dining area wasn't very clean and then the food was the biggest disappointment of all. The chicken... More

we got take out at Eggroll Chens. It was delicious and there was a lot of it. The egg rolls were the bear I've had and the Shrimo fried rice had lots of shrimp. Well definitely go back!

This is a Friday treat for work and I have never had a bad meal or egg roll yet!! They also have drive thru service as well but you have to call it in before picking it up.

For flavor, price and variety, I have never found any restaurant better! Every trip to Columbia has to include a visit here or it is incomplete. Their egg rolls are also the best I have ever had.

I have been visiting Eggroll Chen for 20+ years. I first visited Eggroll Chen when I lived in Columbia 2 decades ago. I have since moved away but whenever I am in the area, I make it a point to visit, even if it means driving 35 minutes to pick up a meal. This a family owned restaurant and the... More

I used to live close by here and always loved their fried wontons. They were always crispy and not tough or chewy like I seem to get in other chinese restaraunts. Had the pleasure to stop by Saturday and everything seems to be as I remember it. Except they have updated the building since I was last here. As others... More

Thanks Grayhair for suggestion, especially the egg roll. I'll add get the fried dumplings. I'm used to getting 6. Got about 12. Since it was take out, didn't find out until opened to pleasant surprise. And they were great! Portion of Gen Tso's chicken did turn out to be too much to finish. Meanwhile space in restaurant is bigger than... More

Building is a bit old and outdated. Employees were polite and professional. Portions are huge and price is good. I would say food quality was about average and a bit too salty for my taste. Would probably not here again.
