We had not eaten here in a couple years, and we wanted to find a different taste from Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, BBQ, etc., and etc. I remember the place on San Jose Blvd, and not much of a drive from the westside. We didn't stop...More

Ample portions so bring your appetite.The ribs are fall-off-the-bone tasty. I will ask for extra sauce next time.

The food is great, but the tables don’t look like they’ve been cleaned all day, and there’s food on the floor. The entrance doors are filthy. Trying to eat without touching anything.

Many options to make your food healthy ... Fast service and always correct. Staff offers extra items for free. Drive thru is slow ... Closing time about an hour to me. They run of food quick because it's just that good.
