“Awesome Chinese food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

From first glance, one would not expect to find such great food in such a small, obscure restaurant. Not much to look at from the outside, but the old adage "don't judge a book by its cover" could never be more true!

It's a local's favorite and every time I have out-of-town company, this is where I take them. My parents, who live in a big city with plenty of Chinese restaurants, always ask for me to take them to Mei's. Mom always says, "I wish we had a Mei's".

A must have is the Walnut Shrimp in Sweet Sauce!

It can be crowded as the interior is small... They don't deliver, but take-out is always an option. You won't be disappointed !

“Good little hole in the wall...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

They say these are the best kind of places. Usually I agree. My in-laws swear by it. I found it decent but not amazing. I wouldn't discourage you from giving it a try. You might be like my in-laws.
