Clean little restaurant on the main drag. Best Chinese Chicken Salad and Egg Rolls I've ever tasted.

“Consistently good”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

We have enjoyed ABC for many years. It is consistent in quality and delicious. We especially like the Chinese Chicken Salad and Pecan Prawns. Friendly, fast service. It's a favorite.

“Good food, pleasant folks, no atmosphere”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

I have eaten lunches at ABC for a long time and the food is consistently good. The staff is friendly but the atmosphere (at least for lunch) is 'simple diner' -- no table clothes (which they do use for dinner) or spectacular decor.

I know a lot of people that will go out of their way to eat here.

“Unpleasant waiter, slimy food”
Reviewed May 18, 2010

This was the worst Chinese food I've had in at least 10 years. The waiter had a scowl on his face and said "no" to almost everything. The soup was revolting, the kung pao chicken had a few unidentifiable dark bits of what might have been chicken, and the won ton was nothing but deep fried carbolipid squares. Nothing about the meal showed any inspiration or pride on the part of the "chef" or cook. The only thing that was good was the price. It was cheap for lunch, and that about sums it up. You would be better off buying frozen Chinese food at the market and then microwaving it.
