Don't let the cheap fool you. – Lilly's is a great neighborhood eatery. Cheap chinese eats (around $4.00 for lunch specials). The produce is very fresh, as noted by the other reviewer, and the food is served in large portions. Lunch specials include a bowl of hot and sour soup (terrific esp. when you're feeling under the weather), and fried wonton skins w/ sweet and sour sauce. Ying, the owner, is friendly and will happily accomodate special requests. The potstickers are particularly good -- big thick dumplings, crispy on one side, steamy on the other -- full of flavorful stuffing. My favorite dishes are pork with assorted mushrooms and chicken or pork w/ gai lan (a special request, not on the menu). Brown rice is available upon request. Mid-day there are hot trays with to-go items ready to box up; fried rice, noodles, sweet/sour pork, etc. There's nothing fancy about Lilly's, but it's reliably good food, served fast and fresh. A bonus for me is that you can get brown rice instead of white upon request.
