I'm a fan.
I have driven from North Phoenix to come and get some of their Chinese food. Heck I stopped on my way home from a business trip to get some of their Chinese food. Can you tell I am a fan. Seriously the food is really good and the portions are huge. A friend of mine and myself actually stopped their on our way to a drive-in movie once and gorged ourselves while watching some "scary movie" that was out at the time. I do enjoy their food and will be back to visit them again real soon!
it's pretty yummy.
What it does have, and that in spades, is atmosphere. my friends and I thought we were suddenly transported to Mexico - I could have been sipping a corona and talking about the day's dive (maybe it was just Shark Week on the TVs) while waiting for our tacos. Go to the bathroom and the impression only grows stronger. then you see that they have beer pong on Tuesday nights, they actually have a decent selection of beers on tap, and a few other elements that bring you back to the USofA. Glad to be back. So about three-ish stars for the food, and a full 5 for being a great place for grownups to go and remember college. 3.50 beers isn't half bad at happy hour, but the rest of the prices weren't amazing. try the signature drink, though, it's pretty yummy.
OMG! I work f &b locally and unfortunately tonight was my first visit. I am seldom impressed and tonight was above and beyond! I hope this gets read by service staff and owners. My husband and I took our 5 college age boys not all arriving at once and while we were waiting we were greeted and offered drinks, apps... Rarely happens! Most often greeted once then ignored until full party arrives. The bartender and wait staff alike have EXCELLENT customer service skills. The food was abundant for the price as well as tasted phenomenal!!! Definitely need to make up for lost time and go again. Front is unassuming but take a chance. no regrets!
Great spot to chill out!.
Great spot to chill out! Just revisited today and was reminded of what a cool little spot this is. It looks like a mix between a junkyard and a dive bar. Try the outdoor patio between the restaurant and the bar and just chill out in a plastic lounge chair. Lots of top notch brews on tap, amazing Chinese food, friendly staff, and really fair prices. You could hang out here in sweats and a smiley face t-shirt and nobody would notice. *Dog friendly too.
It's a fun, friendly spot.
Chop and Wok and Wok Star are a take-out Chinese place and a rock-n-roll dive bar in one. The Chinese place has been at that same corner since the mid 80's. The current owner, Jamie (who is something of a local punk rock legend), added the space across the courtyard a few years ago. Now, it's a cool little compound, with the tiny take-out place and the dinky dive bar separated by a courtyard. If you want take-out or delivery , this is the best Chinese in the area. The menu is heavily Hunan, with an incredible variety. Everything I've had is just right. The appetizers are stellar. Fried rice is so simple, but this is what I really love from Chop and Wok. If you want to eat in, you can order at the takeout counter and grab some patio seating. I usually pull up a stool at the bar, where Jamie, or whoever is manning the taps, will place the order and return when it's ready. Nine-in is still served take-out style, so it's easy to pack up the leftovers. Chop and Wok and Wok Star are open late every night. It's a fun, friendly spot if you're going to stick around or seriously good eats if you just need some Chinese grub.
