review_stars 04/17/2014 - Chris
My husband and i have eaten here for years both in the restaurant and take out. My husband always orders sweet and sour chicken and has never had a problem with it. What I order varies depending on what i feel like eating and everything I've ordered has been very good and I've even make special orders like no mushrooms and have never gotten any flack about it and it is left out as requested. So we will continue to eat there.

review_stars 01/16/2014 - Horrible, horrible food
We just moved to a neighborhood extremely close to this establishment. And by extremely close, I mean I can walk out my back door and be at their front door in less than three minutes.
Wanting to support local "non-chain" businesses, my wife and I ordered "food" to be delivered. The delivery man was very polite and took a minute to chat with us while he was standing on our porch in the freezing cold weather. So far, so good.

Now please keep in mind that my wife and I aren't snooty tooty nor are we picky eaters by ANY means. We unfriend picky eaters on Facebook quite frequently. Sometimes daily. Picky eaters are the spawns of Satan in our eyes.

We opened the food containers and we each prepared a plate of "fried rice" (awful), fried wontons (meh), and something (tougher than stucco) which was supposed to be sweet and sour chicken. Seriously, it was so overcooked that we couldn't even bite into the meat of the chicken whatsoever. It was like trying to chew on a leather belt. That's just me being nice about it. Really.

So my wife and I discuss the option of going up there and simply letting them know that the chicken was not edible.
-No plans on raising h**l or making a scene.
-No plans on demanding our money back.
-No plans on ANYTHING other than simply advising them that the chicken we received could use some improvement.

I drive over there (hey, it's January 2nd and 37 degrees outside!) and I very calmly walk inside. There are several customers inside, seated at the few tables in the dining area. So in a gentle voice I explain to the woman behind the counter why I am there. The cranky little old Asian lady obviously isn't grasping what I am trying to explain to her. She wants to argue with me about, "You pay half order. You get half order."
No, D*** IT (!), when I'm sticking the leathery piece of "chicken" between my teeth and saying, "Ma'am, it's overcooked. I can't even put teeth marks in it", it doesn't mean I'm worried about how many pieces of leather...I mean"chicken"....I received!!

She then stares at me like I'm crazy, so I ask if there is someone else I can speak with. She says "No, he busy cooking can't talk you." At this point I am still very calm and speaking as softly as possible.
Then she starts to point out that we had already eaten some of the rice which was packaged in the same MELTED styrofoam container as the "chicken".

(Well NO S**T , lady!! We could actually choke down a little bit of the "fried rice" before we got lockjaw from trying to chew your crappy chicken !! )

I politely asked her to take a bite of the chicken, or to even try to cut the meat with a knife so she could understand what I was trying to bring to her attention. She takes a piece out and looks at it, then slams it back into the melted styrofoam box.
"Nothing wong" <---(wong, LOL) she tells me while gazing at me with her crazy little Asian lady glare.

Well, no more mister nice guy for me at this point!! In my loudest voice possible I exclaim, "Fine! I was simply trying to help you out, ma'am! If you don't want my business then you will NEVER get it again. Nor will you get my family's, co-workers, or neighbors business because I will make D**N sure that they hear how I was treated here. "

(Insert exaggerated crazy Asian lady glare here.)

Maybe they should consider selling belt buckles to go with their leathery chicken. This IS Texas after all.

Overall food rating : F-

And they don't even have a website.

Not like it's 2014 or anything.
