The business is half cozy restaurant, half authentic Asian market. Everything from discount ramen to a wide variety of odd Asian candies line the aisles. Half the fun is trying to figure out how everything tastes based off the cartoon character packaging.

Mongolian beef or chicken, General Tsao’s chicken, and sesame chicken cover most of the restaurant’s more familiar Chinese food orders. Meanwhile, spicy shredded pork with garlic, stir fry pork with squid, hot sizzling clay pots, and daily specials provide new and interesting options for more 
adventurous diners.

The flavors are robust and fit exactly what you crave out of Chinese food. The fried pot stickers are both filling and tasty, exactly what a group is looking for out of an appetizer. Entrees other than fried rice and lo mein are served with white or fried rice to help fill hungry bellies. This is the best Chinese food in town. Whether you’re out to eat, or just grabbing take-out for a quiet night in, Mr. Chen’s is an obvious choice for a delicious meal.
