My kids and I decided to go out for dinner on a budget. It is like a cafeteria, you go through a line and pick and choose. Each serving​ is $1.10 each. You have a variety of choices and nice size servings. There is no seafood. Various types of chicken, steak, noodles and rice. We each enjoyed our meal.

I live right by Red Bang Bang and tried it quite a few times when they first opened. I can smell their exhaust from my apartment and can tell you, most of the time it smells like old seafood grease - I'm not even sure if they sell real seafood. About once every couple of weeks it actually smells like... More

Okay, I'm not a fan of standing in long lines, walking up to a glass wall and yelling over top of it to some kid hashing out tea spoons of portions a la Chipotle, but this is the same style of ordering you can expect at Red Bang Bang. You will have general and I mean basic Chinese carry out... More

For a dollar a scoop, right near campus, this is EXCELLENT. They have chicken, beef, and veggie options, which is nice. The people are super nice as well. Interesting decorations in red and white, easy to go food!
