I've eaten here a handful of times, and haven't been very impressed. The sweet and sour pork was extremely dry and had little favor. However, the service is very friendly and they are very quick with serving.

I have had numerous dishes from Chen's and everything has been very good. There is always plenty. The lunch serving is great and I find it is big enough to share. Serve is always very pleasant and efficient. My favorite Chinese restaurant in this area.

Love their egg foo young....we usually do are out but have also eaten in. Parking could be better...the owner always parks in front which to me is a little crazy.

I enjoyed the shrimp lo mien courtesy a good friend; it was really tasty & fresh with lot's of shrimp, most places have one or two shrimp and a ton of noodles to fill the void. When I'm in the area again I will be trying out other dishes here.

Visiting the area from New York so didn't have high hopes when I saw that chens was the closest place to have good delivered. Guy that answered the phone was very nice.

We usually just get carry out here since it's on the way home from work, but have dined inside also. Their egg foo young is the best in town. One meal and soup is definitely more than enough for two.

This restaurant is right off the interstate and was across the parking lot from our hotel. The restaurant was very clean and the staff very helpful. I had the Kung Pow chicken which was flavorful without being too spicy. My son had the orange chicken which was also quite good. The dining experience here was very enjoyable and the price... More

The food is pretty good but a word of caution if you choose take-out. Ask for your plastic fork & spoon as well as some napkins since they are never offered and never in your well stapled brown paper bag. This is my second time there, both for take-out; after the first time I had to get plastic ware at... More

This use to be the worse , but now the best. I think the cook use to be elsewhere or has learned to cook. Excellent service and food.
