I really do want to give Yang's four stars ... I really do but I just can't.
It is a funny combination of offerings ... The first time I went I actually laughed ... I suppose I was expecting fast food chinese food. They have all of that of course ... But every imaginable sandwich as well. I really do mean EVERY imaginable sandwich. Ok so maybe that's an exaggeration .... But only a small one.
Over the past two years I've been to Yang's on many occasions with a variety of eating companions in tow.
My fist trip into the 'dive' surroundings of Yang's took a wee bit of determination not to turn tail and run.
It does not look or feel exactly 100% clean. Upon closer inspection you see that it's not unclean .... It just doesn't feel clean.
I had read so many raving reviews about Yang's that I bit the bullet and ordered.
I'm kinda glad I did.
Despite the strange run-down decor and stained ceiling tile... Yang's won me over.
The folks at Yang's are always so nice and helpful. Food is always cooked quickly and all special requests are taken without a bat of an eyelash and carried out perfectly.
The Chinese food itself is 'ok' sometimes a little greasy ... But they give you massive amounts of food for a below fair price. In fact it's the only Chinese like food I have found even palatable in Memphis. 100 times better than Wang's and considerably cheaper!
Strangely enough it is the sandwiches that are the stand-outs here. They are pretty terrific. I have had a few but I love their Veggie sandwich.
I've never eaten inside the restaurant ... I think that the surroundings would just succeed in killing my appetite. I get my food pretend like I don't see anything and go.
There is a drive-thru ... Call your order in and pick it up.
If they would just put some effort into improving the utter shabby decay of the entire establishment I would be debating a four or five star rating ... As it is ... It's a three.
Don't go here looking for High quality ingredients ... It's not really that kinda place.
If you're craving a sandwich of any kind or wanting to kill a Chinese food craving with only a few bucks to spend... This is the place for you!
