Best Chinese in El Centro

Large meals at moderate proces. Atmosphere is not great, but food makes up for it. There is a good variety of lunch specials at a reasonable cost.

They have well served combination lunch specials. The service is always good and fast! There are several options for Chinese food in El Centro but this one still takes the cake! Mmm, Mongolian beef!

We travel to El Centro every 4 or 5 years to bird at the Salton Sea, and we always return to Lucky's. The food is hot and you can tell the ingredients are fresh. Portions are generous and splitting is no problem. What a gem in this area.

Definitely the top of the heap of Imperial Co Chinese food restaurants. Big portions like the others but the food is tastier and service is a cut above the rest. Great ambiance as well, glad it's close to my house!

This is a noodles soup, always amazing. I have been ordering it for fourteen years or longer (when it was not in the menu) and I cannot get tired of it regardless of how often I eat it. Duck is good too.

Lately when my wife and I are in the mood for Chinese (and I’m not up to making it), we find ourselves going to Lucky’s Chinese Food in El Centro.
