This is a great place for consistent menu deliverance. Other Pick Up Stix I've had to many inconsistencies. Busy at lunch with all the big companies around. Wonton Wednesday is the Best!

This is a nice Chinese type restaurant. The food is good. The prices are reasonable. I think the portions are a bit small, but aside from that, I would recommend this place

The food was fast, but still good. There was outside seating as well as inside. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was very nice.
