“Best Egg Rolls in the Universe!”
Review of Eng's II

Eng's II
Ranked #80 of 174 Restaurants in Kingston
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 3, 2012

When in the mood for "old school" Chinese there's no place like Eng's. The family opened their 1st restaurant in 1923! The decor in this location may be dated, but it's comfortable & the service is always friendly & excellent. IMO some dishes are just OK, but most are done very well. The ribs? None else in the area compare. Hands down my favorite spot for bbq spareribs. The egg rolls alone are worth a trip from anywhere! If there is a better egg roll somewhere on this planet I'd like to know where. They burst with fresh celery aroma and great flavor! Not the usual bland, cabbage-heavy egg roll you get everywhere these days. Pricing is reasonable & they offer a buffet a few times a week. Very close to Exit 19 of the NYS Thruway.

I remember the second floor on Wall St before they moved to Broadway. I took my parents here and it took me back to being a kid. We got their earlier enough to get the lunch menu so we got four combination plates and two appetizers and the bill was very reasonable.

This is a place tha serves old style Americanized Chinese food which seemglly has fallen out of style for the Asian Fusion style food which I also enjoy. They do have a buffet but I am not sure when.

I really love going to Eng's. They have a very welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere, and are one of the few Chinese places that still welcomes you with free, hot, oolong tea. Go there for the lunch special, it is a steal! Rice, a main course, and an egg roll for $5.00!
