Yen King is definitely at the top of our list for local Chinese food.

We have been eating here for years and enjoy the food, service, and ambiance. The food aside from being great is plentiful and reasonable priced. Our favorite is the Peking dinner which... More

I could make a meal of their hot and sour soup - shrimp, chicken, tofu and veggies. My favorites are moo shu pork, kung pao triple delight, and broccoli beef.
