Review of First Chinese BBQ

Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 September 2018

My wife and I have been patronizing this place, particularly this location, because the one that is our favorite Chinese BBQ place shut down to give way to a Walgreen's store. The First Chinese BBQ doesn't have the quality, flavor and value of the other one but it is close enough. The Pork BBQ is not as flavorful and is not plated as nicely. The wonton in the Wonton Soup and Beef Stew with Wonton Noodles is not as tasty. The house Pan Fried Noodles dish is not as plentiful and robust. The prices, while higher than what we were used to in the other place across the road, are reasonable.

First Chinese serves both authentic Cantonese, and Americanized-Chinese food. The 104 and 110 soups are very good. The best fried rices are the shrimp and the pork. The Orange Beef is everyone's favorite. Try the Shrimp with crispy noodle for subtle flavor. If you get the beef with green pepper, ask them to add black bean for a more robust flavor. BRING CASH... THEY DON'T TAKE PLASTIC.

I've been here a couple of times and the food and service are great and the portions and prices unbeatable. The shrimp Won ton soup is outstanding with flavorful broth and won tons filled with shrimp and pork. This is not your average American Chinese restaurant. This is the genuine article and worth your visit. Excellent find!

My wife is Chinese, so she knew what to order, and this is authentic HK-style food. The waiter wasn't very attentive, but he was nice enough once he came over.
