The food is delicious, The prices are great for the amount of food you get and be careful how much you order if you aren't a big eater you WILL have leftovers. I love getting the crab ragoon and the egg rolls. My kids and I share them along with the fried rice. Shanghai Boy IS a part of Lee's Summit's history. Yes it has only been on third street for less than 15 years BUT they have been in lee's summit for a lot longer. They have wonderful, friendly staff and I don't think they need to change the decor just because it serves mainly chinese food verse the regular burger food. It is still a wonderful place to eat or just pick something up on the way home.
I have been going to Shanghai Boy almost weekly for over 5 years. Besides being very reasonable in price there variety of menu items, quality and taste are the best in KC. It's not a typcial Chinese establishment because they also offer American cuisine such as hamburgers, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches, etc, which are also outstanding. I hope Lee's Summit and the surrounding towns continue to support Shanghai Boy, especially since it is located in a Lee's Summit restaraunt location that has been an important part of Lee's Summit's history for decades.
This place is a wonderful place to eat for many different reasons. We are a family of 4, 3 of which are kids. They all like different things and it can be pricey to get something for everyone if eating somewhere like the MasterWok. We love the atmosphere, the service, the selection, the cleanliness, and the price. I would highly suggest this for someone on a budget, with a big family, or just for any reason really.
