“Not impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We can't figure out why all of the rave reviews. We've been here several times with friends, and the best thing about the place isn't the unique food, but the unique decor. The food is O.K., but not outstanding. The lettuce wraps don't even come close to PF Chang's wraps, the chicken skewers with peanut sauce were overcooked - dry and chewy, the peanut sauce gloppy and thick, the chicken fried rice was not flavorful at all. The Mongolian beef was good.

You can't beat half-off happy hour, though. Maybe that's why the place gets such rave reviews - after a few drinks, almost anything tastes good!

“Go to Flo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

A neighborhood restaurant and some of the best Chinese I have ever tasted. Lived near Cermak and Archer in Chicago (Moon Palace is my favorite). Try the Spicy Cinnamon Shrimp and Twice Cooked Pork (with chilis) for a Southwestern flavor.

“One of my favorites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

My daughter and I had dinner at Flo's last night courtesy of a wonderful groupon deal. The food was delicious as always. The Happy Hour is great! We usually have lunch at Flo's so this was a nice change. We absolutely recommend Flo's!

“All Around, Great Chinese Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have been eating at Flo's for many years now, and I never get tired of it. They have a great happy hour, where the large premium imports beer, such as Kirin, Sopporo, and Tiger, for $3.00. All their wine and appetizers are half off from 4-7 every day. I really enjoy the lettuce wraps and chicken wings. The portions are generous too. Don't miss out on their Sat. $5.00 lunch special. Many to choose from, and that includes a salad, won ton chips, brown or white rice. You cannot go wrong. If you like it spicy, ask for their home made hot sauce. They open at 12:00, but I get their 10 min earlier, because a line starts to form.
I think their hot and sour soup is the best. So is the Mongolian Beef, Tofu with vegetables, pan fried noodles, and kung pao chicken. These are my favorite. Others are good too.
Great friendly, bistro, atmosphere, for families, dates, everyone. The servers, hostess, bussers, are always attentive and hard working. Flo is there at dinner, and she will always greet and check on all the customers. I will always return!

“We love Flo's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

We go to Flo's about once a week for Happy Hour, which is a great deal. The food is super, as are the drinks and prices.
