This hotel was an easy walk from hotel. We found it to be reasonably priced and food was pretty good. Service was excellent and meals were served very hot and fresh.

Very good food at a good price. We ate there the whole weekend we stayed. Nice staff too. Not so fancy, but who cares at these prices.

Christmas Day. Beggars can't be choosers. Really not good. While my shrimp lo mien was decent, other companions' beef lo mien had a meatlike substance unknown to all in our group. Another's fried rice was bad. At least the egg drop soup was OK. At least the place was impeccably clean. We won't be returning.

I have to say that I had what has to be the best chisel plate I have ever had. The chicken jalapeño is to die for ! Place is clean and prices are cheap. Service was excellent but it was a slow night.

Was in town with my family to visit Six Flags and stopped here for lunch. The lunch specials are $7 and the appetizers are cheap. The waitress acted more like a volunteer family member of the business and was very nonchalant. Good food for the price especially when you're already going to spend a ton of money at the amusement... More

If you want great Chinese food, go to Pearl Inn. The chef owner, Frank, uses the best ingredients and the food is delicious and healthy, without being greasy or heavy. Lots of variety in different soups, sauces, and the portions are very generous. There are plenty of vegetarian options and the service is excellent. You won't be disappointed!

Virginia and her family have owned the location from the beginning. They moved here from Hong Kong, more than 25 years ago. They have a stock, extensive, Chinese menu with almost all of the dishes available for lunch or dinner. They will special order anything that you want. My favorites are the hot and sour soup always.

I wasn't sure where to order from so I called the front desk at the La Quinta Fiesta Texas and this is the place they recommended. Though I'm always leery about ordering egg foo yong take out...

Here's the key for this restaurant - do not order off of the menu! The owners are so cool - they will make you legit Chinese food - just tell them what you want - and don't ask for lemon chicken or some other "american" chinese food!! They can make you a custom dish - fish, shrimp, chicken pork or... More

The service was hostile, she sat us next to the entry, there was no discussing it, "sit". While the prices were low, so was the quality of the food. It was within walking distance of the hotel.
