Was in town with my family to visit Six Flags and stopped here for lunch. The lunch specials are $7 and the appetizers are cheap.

Christmas Day. Beggars can't be choosers. Really not good. While my shrimp lo mien was decent, other companions' beef lo mien had a meatlike substance unknown to all in our group. Another's fried rice was bad. At least the egg drop soup was OK. At least the place was impeccably clean. We won't be returning.

I have to say that I had what has to be the best chisel plate I have ever had. The chicken jalapeño is to die for ! Place is clean and prices are cheap. Service was excellent but it was a slow night.

If you want great Chinese food, go to Pearl Inn. The chef owner, Frank, uses the best ingredients and the food is delicious and healthy, without being greasy or heavy. Lots of variety in different soups, sauces, and the portions are very generous. There are plenty of vegetarian options and the service is excellent. You won't be disappointed!

They have a stock, extensive, Chinese menu with almost all of the dishes available for lunch or dinner. They will special order anything that you want. My favorites are the hot and sour soup always.

I've had a lot of Chinese food delivered to me in hotel rooms across the country and this ranked in the top ten!! I wasn't sure where to order from so I called the front desk at the La Quinta Fiesta Texas and this is the place they recommended. Though I'm always leery about ordering egg foo yong take out...

Here's the key for this restaurant - do not order off of the menu! The owners are so cool - they will make you legit Chinese food - just tell them what you want - and don't ask for lemon chicken or some other "american" chinese food!! They can make you a custom dish - fish, shrimp, chicken pork or... More

The service was hostile, she sat us next to the entry, there was no discussing it, "sit". While the prices were low, so was the quality of the food. It was within walking distance of the hotel.

I was looking for good Asian food in San Antonio and decided to try the Pearl Inn. There are plenty of Chinese restaurants, but few really good places to eat. I ordered the combination fried rice and my wife ordered the 4 item delight. Portions were huge and we immediately knew that we each had a least another meal to... More
