I'm an 18 year regular and the owner/chef still surprises me/us all the time with outside of the box creations, besides the regular great Chinese and Vietnamese offerings. Kobe beef burgers, enchilada night, fried chicken Sunday, wild boar chili and it goes on and on....More

I don't want to say it's the worst I've had but it's not that good. In fact, I am giving it a 3 just because the service was friendly. Other than that, I will not be returning here. Wish it could have been better.
