It always annoys me when people review a place out of it's context. Doc Chey's is a small chain in the area that serves an Americanized version of various noodle dishes so review it on that basis, don't bash it for not being 'authentic' when that's not even what they are trying for! Bottom line is that its a great fix for your noodle cravings, especially in a city without a lot of good options to begin with. Overall they do a good job, the dishes are flavorful and consistent and they have the right base elements to them. I like the spicy thai basil with chicken and/or shrimp, its got a bit of a kick to it and I love the fresh thai basil. They basically serve simplified versions of many 'authentic' asian noodle dishes in a fashion that is pleasing to the American palate. So yes, if you're comparing it to Momofuku in NY or PPQ in SF then its not gonna stack up at all, but for the neighborhood its in and the area its pretty yummy and cheap and well worth a try if you want a quick meal.

Second visit to the Emory location. Not too bad. I know people knock this place because of the salty-ness or the flavor. I suppose it depends on what you order. This place makes eveything to your order. So if you don't want red pepper or added sauce, then leave it out. Food arrived fast, hot, and good portion. This time, I got the black bean rice noodles, yum. We arrived a bit after 1pm and had no trouble finding a place to sit or park.

Totally worth going to but not your regular seating arrangements.. They have some individual tables but they also have long picnic tables. Sometimes you may end up at a table with someone you don't know...I like that though.

The food is fresh and yummy. The flavors are VERY good.

Nothing fancy and you will get your money's worth.

When all else fails there's Doc Chey's to fill the gap!!! Yes, they are always there when one doesn't feel like cooking or just for a change!!! Just call ahead and lunch/dinner can be picked up in minutes!!

Every time I have lunch at this place, I receive great service and good food. It's near the great Emory University and hospital so the convenience of walking to a cool little lunch spot is great. The lettuce wraps, coconut soup, hot green tea really warms the soul. I enjoy this neighborhood comfort spot!
