Think Seinfeld and the Soup Nazi--only with not so awesome food! If you want mediocre food where there is a good chance you will get yelled at because you come in 45 minutes before closing time and they are ready to go home, you ask a question about pricing, or you need a refill on water--then this is your place!...

This is my go to for Chinese. The food is consistently good and service is excellent. You are generally waited on very fast and at least having soup within minutes. While they have many of the same menu items as most Chinese restaurants in the US, they really do a great job of it. Food is always served hot and... More

Ordered takeout on a Friday evening. Food was so-so, I've had better elsewhere. Service was fine and food was ready upon arrival. Prices seemed reasonable as well.

We ordered takeout for dinner. I had sweet & sour chicken which was just okay. The egg rolls and wontons were good though. It served the purpose as we didn't want to cook!

Chong’s Coal Mine Dragon in Evergreen is pretty much all Chinese offerings, at best I'd say our dinner was OK/Passable. Their atmosphere caters to everyone, families, singles, couples, young and old. I would say while this is a OK place, it’s not a destination place. The restaurant is dated and a little worn in places. It looks as if it’s... More

Fresh and tasty, often too much soy. Good size portions, and several selections. We enjoy the vegetable dishes, and the sweet-and-sour chicken and shrimp. Lo Meins are tasty. Local and welcoming. Have returned 3-4 times.

Get takeout from there once a month. Not many options in evergreen. Food is ok, staff is rushed and rude. Reminds me of the Chinese restaurant in South Park, only run by the woman instead of the man.

This is Americanized Chinese food. There just aren't many Chinese restaurants in Evergreen so this one may be the best by default. For really good Chinese food you would have to go to Denver.
