We have been eating here for 20 years! It's never changed! I get the 2 item combo. I choose the Emerald Chicken, Quesadilla style, Jade Chicken and Black Beans and chicken fried rice! You also get a free homemade Snickerdoodle cookie!

I have to admit, I was a bit leary. The neighborhood is a little out of my comfort zone, and I've never been to a restaurant that serves Chinese and Mexican together. My husband (who is super picky and hates dives) came here with his boss (had no choice) and loved it! So he brought my son and I here.... More

They are consistent, and never disappoint with the food or the Snickerdoodles. Not fancy at all, but affordable and delicious. Try the Jen Red Pork in a burrito.

I love chino because it is different and made with real ingredients instead of crap. Try your selection in a quesadilla! Emerald chicken and diablo chicken is the best! I get mine with black beans and jerk fried rice.

We finally ate here yesterday and it was amazing! The ordering can be a little complicated but they are willing to help you. We both had combo plates, I had a gringo chicken quesadilla, a jade red chicken burrito and chicken fried rice, we forgot to mark my beans so I only got to try a bit of the black... More
