Lemongrass offers an eclectic blend of Chinese, Thai, & Vietnamese fare in a low budget type atmosphere. They have several lunch specials for $5.50 and the house specials hit a still low $10.95. In a place that offers 3 different kinds of food I made the mistake of opting for the Chinese, which was uninspiring. I've heard better things about both the Thai & Vietnamese so take this with a grain of salt.

Favorite Dish: Chicken & Broccoli Lunch Special---$5.50
A heaping pile of "fried rice" that didn't taste fried at all alongside wonderfully
crisp soy sauce soaked broccoli & a very scant amount of chicken.

Moo Goo Gai Pan Lunch Special---$5.50
The same rice as above with mixed veggies in the traditional clear sauce that
had an overly strong buttery taste.

Both of these were served with egg rolls, which was nothing more than some cabbage wrapped & fried. if I come back here I won't be eating the Chinese!
