reliable mom & pop restaurant that has a substantive menu. we've gotten delivery and take-out from here many times and while we were apprehensive at first, based on appearances of the tiny store front, we were pleasantly surprised by the freshness, portion size, and price. We always get the hot sour soup, lo mein, chicken & string beans, kung pow dishes -- and there are always leftovers for 2 or 3 meals. Don't let the phone etiquette scare you away - we've learned to look past this and recognize that it's just a language barrier and it is not their intent to be malicious. (judging from the other reviews on the page) Give it a try, see if you like it. We do!

Pros: extensive menu, quick delivery, inexpensive, and flavorful

Cons: some items will set you back a couple of miles on the treadm

A friend recently suggested Empire as an OK, cheap and quick delivery option. Their rude staff informed me that while they advertise delivery it is "as available" . This is not an option for someone who is hungry and needs stability in their dining options. I would suggest China Doll as an option to anyone looking at this establishment. They are at least consistent.

Cons: Rude and did not DELIVER

Could not get beyond the rude woman taking orders to even try this restaurant. Pick anything other than this in Chicago. Not even close to NY standards for delivery service. THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE!

Empire is great if you're looking for cheap takeout. Their lunch specials are huge and really inexpensive. I don't think I've ever waited for more than 5 minutes to pick up my food. It can be a bit greasy, but if you like Chinese, this is the place to get takeout from.
