This place has, hands down, the best Lo Mein in Chicago!

I gave the rest of my general tso chicken that was not spicy and tasted like BBQ chicken. The vegetable lo mein was flavorless. The only thing that was ok was the egg roll because it was fried. I do nit recommend thus place unless I ordered the wrong thing.

I have been eating in and picking up at Orange Garden for over 30 yrs. They have decided to (finally) offer delivery. Oh MY GOSH, I am so HAPPY

When I attended Lake View High School from 1972-76, I used to make the short trip from Irving and Ashland to the Orange Garden which is about 3 blocks to the west. Of course, being a high school student strapped for cash, I would always get a lunch special. It was outstanding then and 34, 35 years later it is still great in my opinion.

This is one of the oldest chinese joints in Chicago, dating to the 1920's. Very deco. Family owned, food is OUTSTANDing. Atmosphere is the best I have encountered in chinese resturant.

This place has been around for a long time. I've been told it's the oldest Chicagoland Chinese restaurant still operating out of the same location. Not that I am surprised: the food is excellent, the prices are very good, and the service is too. There are some other restaurants that may serve one or two dishes better than Orange Garden's version. However, on the whole, this restaurant makes delicious food and doesn't disappoint. You can get an enormous bowl of wonton soup, or just the usual size. You can get their signature dish, Orange Beef (or Orange Chicken), and you'll come back for it again and again. The dining room is small enough that you can always catch the waiter's eye, but you don't have them pestering you either. Too bad they don't deliver, but that may be the reason why they have been able to keep a loyal following that hasn't ballooned (to thereby sacrifice the food or service's quality). There are few northside Chinese-American restaurants that you will find equal to this place.

This place is a neighborhood staple. Its been here forever and isnt going anywhere soon with its huge following. Great food, nice old school atmosphere. not your yuppy place that has become far too typical for this area.
