When you see the old yellow sign spelling out Wong’s in a Cantonese font, pull your car over immediately. Since 1973, the Wong family has been rising early, prepping daily what has arguably become some of the best Chinese cuisine in this part of the world.
They’re closed Mondays, but every other day of the week, Wong’s offers a lunch buffet rivaling in quality anything you’ll find in one of those mega buffets. Don’t see something you like on the buffet? Your friendly server, who’s probably a Wong family member, will be happy to recommend something prepared to order from their expansive menu. A good place to start is the crab rangoon, po po tray or the pot stickers, immediately followed by the egg drop or hot and sour soup.
For an authentic Cantonese experience, try one of Wong’s family style dinners, a sampling of several different menu offerings served family style to groups of two or more. Or, strike out on your own and choose from standard menu items such as chow mein, sweet and sour, egg foo young, lo mein or chop suey, all with your choice of beef, pork, shrimp or chicken.
Wong’s also offers several specialty dishes to choose from such as Szechuan chicken, beef or pork, Mongolian beef, fish filet with hot and spicy garlic sauce or ma-po’s tofu.
If there’s a super picky eater in your crew, or just don’t feel like eating Chinese, the American menu at Wong’s rivals most diners offering burgers, steak, fries and even chicken fried steak.
