We have been going to Lucky Chinese for years, the food is always fresh and they have a descent variety of items. They also have a complete menu for specialty ordering. It's always great but it's really nice on those nights your busy or dont feel like cooking!

Some really good food served by great waitresses. Loved the crispy beef and the fried calamari. Food prices are good for the area. Have plenty of seating. Fast, friendly service.

Good selection, lots of parking and convenient location since it is close to many stores I go to. We have eaten here and taken out many times.

Have been coming here for years - recently took over suite next door and now offers dinning in comfort. Love being able to get a 2 item combo and some coup and egg rolls for under 10.00. - Good enough for 2 people easy - large portions of rice/chow mein - or choose the shanghei noodles - yum! I like...

I like this place a lot. You can get take out and also dine there. Generous portions so usually enough to take out with you. Wait staff in dining room could use improvement. Most people just do take out. Food is freshly prepared. Great prices.

This place has always been great. It seems to get better over the years. I hate Panda Express but the rest of the family loves it. This place is reasonably price (not quite cheap anymore) but they make their dishes fresh (somewhat visible) and if you're unhappy they will immediately offer a replacement.

The staff is always nice, and while I have occasionally seen some items look like they have been sitting there a while, most of the time the dishes look very fresh. Their BBQ pork and terriyaki chicken are always good as well as their orange chicken

The food here is served cafeteria style, but is constantly being refreshed. We ordered vegetable egg foo yung, off the menu, and it was incredible. All the favorites from other chains, but in larger portions and smaller prices. We have a few places we go for Chinese, that have better food, but not for the budget. The place is always... More
