“Absolutely the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

How do you feed four people for $30, go to Jin's. It's difficult to find shrimp toast and when you do, it's usually not very good. However, Jin's is fabulous. You won't find it on their menu, but if the sign is posted on their wall, you can get it. We had Young Chow fried rice, chicken wings, shrimp toast, egg foo young, white rice and our very favorite, Jin's Special Chow Mein.

Take out is prepared so quickly you don't have to call ahead. Jin's has been in the area for over 50 years. Just remember to take cash or your checkbook. Credit cards are not accepted.

We told our good friends that we dined with to let us know anytime they need a "Jin's fix". It's great for lunch or dinner.

“Great take-out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We have been going to this take-out restaurant for years. They have the best chow mein in the area. Easy to get in and out of their parking lot. Nice prople who run this place always have a smile. Good size portions and good prices.

“Jin's has been a strong presence in this community for at least 50 years.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I met Mee Jin when I was a very little girl. My Dad and he were great friends and core members of this community. The food is terrific. Everyone I know who has moved away from here, misses Jin's as a part of our home, our past and our present thankfully : ) We have actually sent Jin's to relatives in Alaska who needed a Jin's fix! Don't hesitate - it's wonderful stuff, and wonderful folks:)
