No. 1 Chinese Restaurant
Posted by Barbara624 on 02/06/2011
I've gotten takeout from this little place once a week or more for many years--and they continue to be wonderful. The lunch special chicken with garlic sauce (spicy) is so good, I actually sigh with pleasure when I take the first bite. The hot-and-sour soup is so rich and good, I think it's the best I've had anywhere--and I've had it all over town. They have seriously good cold noodles, too, and very good lo-mein. I usually get the vegetable lo mein and ask them to make it spicy. Not much room to sit, but most people take food out. (They also do really good fried chicken--I don't order it much, but it's great.)

I have ordered takeout from this place many times. While the food is never great, it is always good and it gets to you very quickly. I have always found everyone to be polite, but rushed, perhaps a sign of a busy takeout place.

Of a chinese take out. My favorite in the area. Very fast delivery. Not everything on the menu is great but there are quite a few that are exceptional! Veg. Dumplings, Fried wings, All the soups, fried rice, etc. Worth a try for sure, I have not found better close by.

not usually picky when it comes to chinese food but this was really bad.... both the sesame chicken and string beans had a strange flavor and were greasy

The fried chicken wings are fantastic.

No. 1 is everything you could ever want in a Chinese take-out restaurant. It is cheap, delicious, and they will many any order without corn starch or oil. It is best never to walk into the actual restaurant, but there is really no need. It is consistently the best Chinese take-out restaurant.
