Pick Up Stix Fresh Asian Flavors

Reviewed 13 August 2017

Pick up Stix was a good choice for a light snack while waiting for the hotel room to be cleaned. There was easy parking and walking in we saw patrons at various tables. A nice young lady was ready to take our order. I ordered wonton soup and two eggrolls and a drink. She said she would bring the order to our table and we could sit anywhere we pleased. Wow, there is a lot of fresh carrots and broccoli and mushrooms in a piping hot broth filled with wontons and slices of chicken. It was a good choice. The eggrolls came with a sweet dipping sauce and it was crunchy on the outside and just right amount of fillings on the inside. We could not finish the wonton soup and the young lady gave us a top and extra crispy noodles so we could take it to go. Nice service, good and quickly made soup and eggrolls, and a clean dining area. We liked the way Pick up Stix served the customer and would recommend this one.

For us, this is a good take out place. Dining in is, I imagine, like dining at a McDonalds.

The offerings are good standard Chinese, mostly Cantonese, entrees. But tasty, freshly prepared in front of your eyes in woks engulfed in high flames. Rather dramatic to watch. They are happy to customize your order - more of this, less of that, this instead of that, etc.

For what it is, it's very good.

We visited this place more then once and each time my wife would order Chicken Pad Thai. My choices usually are - Fried Rice with Shrimps or Salmon with Brown Rice and Veggies. They do have a program - after 10 visits - one meal is free. Also 10% senior discount each time helps. Service is great and we saw a lot of people ordering take out food. Lately there are some movements on the front counter (where you are placing your order) but the cooks are still the same.

but a bit spicy for my tastes. One dish was so spicy I couldn't eat it, and I like somewhat spicy food. Place is clean, service fast, but prefer Panda. It is also more expensive, and not really worth it.
