“Do NOT go to this restaurant!”
Reviewed October 2, 2010

My wife and I went to Fong's for dinner on a Saturday night. We arrived and were seated at 6:20, and the waitress took our order at 6:35. We finally got our egg rolls at 7:!5, but at 7:35 there was still no sign of our dinner. Totally frustrated, we got up and left. We went down the street to Subway, where the folks behind the counter laughed and told us that all the locals know that the service at Fong's is ridiculously slow and that the food is not even any good! By the way, the sandwich we got at Subway was great. Skip Fong's--go to Subway!

Reviewed September 6, 2010

All customers had a long, long wait for food which wasn't very good. Evidently this has been going on for years!!!

“Give it a pass if looking for Chinese food.”
Reviewed July 6, 2009

Chow mein was served without any noodles - it was more a vegetable stir fry - and was rather tasteless. The Szechuan seafood platter had a smokey BBQ taste rather than anything close to a spicy chinese or asian taste.
