POTTSTOWN, PA  – By the end of summer, the Pottstown Walmart store is going to be a whole lot bigger.

In fact, it’s going to be super.

For the past four months, construction crews have been working on the expansion of the Walmart store in the Pottstown Center, Route 100 and Shoemaker Road, into a Supercenter. In addition to work being done inside and outside the store to grow the Walmart by 55,000 square feet into a SuperCenter – basically a Walmart that includes a full grocery store – the shopping center’s parking lot is also under construction.

That will mean 55,000 square feet of new construction will be added to Pottstown’s tax rolls after the property is reassessed when the construction is complete.

A Review of Pottstown’s New Asia Steakhouse

I had lunch at the new Asia Steakhouse today, in the West End Shopping Center, Pottstown.  It was formerly Gourmet Buffet.  Walking in the door was shocking (in a good way) as the new décor is amazing.  It truly is a major remodel.  Gleaming hardwood floors, new booths, tables and chairs, dishes, flatware etc…  Everything smelled brand new and was impeccably clean.

The lunch menu has a nice variety to choose from.  We both opted for the combination meals.  The combo meals come with soup or salad and dessert.  The entrée comes with either white or egg fried rice.  The prices are very reasonable!  Our bill for two lunches and two iced teas was $17.97

We both started with Wonton soup which was nicely prepared and very flavorful.

I ordered Shredded Beef in Peking Sauce, which is spicy.  It included delicious tender beef and tons of vegetables.  My friend ordered General Tso’s Chicken which also looked appetizing and included broccoli.  The presentations were excellent.  The new plates, which are rectangular and white, enhance the artfully displayed and colorful food.  The egg fried rice was also good. 

Portion sizes are just right for lunch.  Not too big, not too small.  I am full but not stuffed.

For dessert we were treated to a small square of chocolate cake with chocolate sauce decorating the plate.  A nice sweet treat to round off the meal.

Our server was very friendly as was the host who greeted us at the door.

My friend used the ladies’ room and she reported it is beautiful and clean!

You are dining in elegant surroundings but not paying a premium price for great food.

Welcome to Pottstown Asia Steakhouse.  Two Roy’s Rants thumbs up!
