I ordered Ma Po Tofu and two vegetarian egg rolls to go. The Ma Po was made without meat at my request and had large pieces of fresh tofu, a few large fresh green pepper slices, fresh mushrooms, but frozen carrots and peas. The sauce was a little thick for my liking. The vegetarian egg roll was not on the... More

The outside of this place is kind of scary looking. It's not in the greatest part of town, but the food is wonderful. Best chinese food in town hands down. The service is always friendly and if you get delivery they're fast.

Evergreen Chinese Restaurant is not what you would normally identify as a Restaurant. It's VERY SMALL with three or four tables where people normally call and pick up their orders. The food is fairly good but salty tasting. I once picked up shrimp and egg rolls to go and they were put in a paper bag. By the time I... More

We are local, we never eat there, because its small and cramped. However the food is great. We know if we want good chinese food and do not want to gamble on a new place, we go here. We order here almost every time we want chinese, and prolly every couple months or so. Always fresh and hot. Delivery costs... More

I had been craving Chinese food and ordered from Evergreen. This was my first time getting food from Evergreen. The restaurant's interior is not impressive at all...small with space heaters and the typical faded pictures of food on the walls. Service and speed were both excellent. The food was better than average. I had the egg drop/wonton soup and Dragon... More

Plenty of food but nothing special- I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this one. Pretty typical of over fried, over-sauced, not very fresh food; again, pretty typical of the average Chinese restaurants found in thousands of small towns across the land.

With numerous chinese resturants in the area, Evergreen has the best around. Good flavor on all the dishes I've tried (my favorite is the General Tso's combo platter). They offer delivery to a wider area than their competitors. It can be frustrating ordering over the phone on a busy day (I was on hold for approximately 8 minutes before they... More
