    At 1st Chop Suey I've never had them get an order wrong. In 20 years this has been the place we use at least a couple times a month. They also now take credit cards (for a $.30 service fee). They don't have a huge selection menu like some newer places but everything they do here is spot on. Even the lunch specials are great and a good value. We love their egg foo young quite a bit. Usually we get ham but the shrimp or combo is good too. Cooked fast and not burnt with lots of gravy makes it a winner. The pan fried noodles are excellent and always made to order, not left limp and soggy in a bin. And the egg drop soup is one of my favorites. There are a couple things I don't care for here like Crab Rangoon (too oily) or Orange Chicken (thick gelatinous sauce with heavy dark spicy peppers) but there are so many good offerings who can pass it up? The family that runs the place is great and even though a terrible traffic accident on I55 a few years ago hit the family hard by losing a few family members on their way home from work, they continued smiling and serving up their huge portions. I may occasionally visit other local sit-down table service Asian restaurants but this is my take out choice by far.

    Food taste really weird Worst fried rice ive had Never coming here again I had the orange chicken The lady took like 10 minutes to take my order Rice tasted really nasty i threw it away I was going to return it but felt bad about going back and telling them Will never come here again I usually go to new china tea ITS WAY BETTER I was trying something new with this place Just sticking to my usual Chinese spot

    No food especially Chinese take out with questionable OSHA practices is worth being ignored while standing 3 inches away from the woman at the register who was on the phone telling the person on the other end his/her total every time he/she added something to the order. After ten minutes a different woman took my order. However, the woman on the phone was still casually asking the customer if he/she wanted a free egg roll . She held up the only phone line so my payment couldn't be processed. It was ridiculous. Get another phone line , the customer standing in front of you takes precedence over the nutcase on the phone, and lastly give Joy Lee noodles back its chairs.

    Wanted some quick food close to my job. I read the other reviews here, so I gave it a try. Ordered chicken fried rice, Singapore style noodles and Mongolian beef. Only the fried rice was acceptable. The Singapore noodles were bland, they gave me half an onion that was nearly raw. The noodles were very soggy and oily. The Mongolian beef was made from cuts of meat that seemed to be days old. They smelled terrible. Again, there was too much onion. And it was undercooked. I don't know what the other reviewers are thinking. This is terrible Chinese. Don't order from here.

  • Paul L.

    The food was ok for a Chinese restaurant. I got general sous chicken, my go to dish. The rice was good but the chicken was literally tysons frozen chicken! Ugh oh well, I would go back in a pinch but wouldn't if I had another option.

  • Janet B.

    Been ordering there for years! I am spoiled and don't care for any other Chinese from anywhere else! Great food, good service, and gigantic portions! Awesome.

  • Sally S.

    Ordered from here for the first time 2 days ago. VERY generous portions, great price, great tasting food. Delivery took no time at all. Very pleased and will most definitely order again soon.

  • Michael P.

    Order the king pao chicken lunch special and oh my, the portions are HUGE! You could easily feed 2 adults with one order. My friend got the orange chicken and hers was much better in my opinion. The food was overall good but you can really taste the msg, but you gotta expect that when you are paying $6 for THAT MUCH FOOD! If you are in the mood for chop suey on the cheap, it's not a bad option.

  • Lori S.

    Excellent dishes, they give you a good amount too. I'm vegetarian and they have options for me here. Their delivery is super fast!

  • Saul V.

    I'm not a Chinese food fanatic for I only order the fried rice, but it's delicious. I've order from this establishment for years and never experienced a problem. The staff is friendly and service quick.

  • Samantha D.

    I only come here for their chicken noodle soup. OMG!!!! It is really good. Best chicken noodle soup I ever had. One day I was near & so I stopped in & got their soup. Wow! It's outta this world. I pretty much stop there everyday after work just to get it. & it's only $3.57. Can't beat that. Highly recommend if your a soup person like me.

  • Maria H.

    HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!! I ordered a large shrimp fried chicken and they brought me something completely different. I called back to tell them they delivered the wrong thing and said they would deliver the right item, but would still charge me. I asked for manager and he started yelling at me on the phone! What manager does that?!? NEVER GO HERE unless you want the wrong food and to get yelled at by the manger! Horrible management!

  • N E.

    Best in the Midway area. Have been eating here for over three years. If you do not want to drive to China town, or drive at all. Have them bring you a great meal. Egg rolls are great, shrimp fried rice is great. They have lunch meals, that are giant. Makes into lunch and dinner for me. They are the fastest in the city. And really a nice family, and have always taken great care of my dinning needs.

  • Natalie T.

    It's not completely horrible because if its a Monday and we really really want Chinese we will go here. More than once they have forgotten to put sauces in the bag (sweet & sour and soy) how does that happen? Also dislike what thickening agent they use for their gravy. It's awful to reheat. The portions are big so reheating is usually happening for us.

  • Sarah C.

    My favorite Asian food in the area, whether we stop in or get delivery. I always get shrimp fried rice and hot orange chicken which isn't really any spicier than the mild so I'm not sure if there is a difference. Love the broccoli that comes with it too taste good in the sauce!!

  • Christina S.

    I have never been but have recently moved to the area..and found this website with this horrifying information!! chicago.everyblock.com/f…

  • Tom G.

  • nathan g.

    I eat here all the time and have never been disappointed. love their combination chow mein, ham fried rice, and chicken and broccoli. huge portions. best place in the area hands down

  • Mrs. F.

    Best Chinese restaurant in Clearing Garfield Ridge. Love their combination fried rice and beef with broccoli.

  • fabiola b.

    I have been eating here for a long time. The food has always been good. The best item on the menu (in my opinion) is the Mongolian Beef and the egg rolls. There portions are big and decently priced. It's not a place to go and eat but for a quick bit they have like 2 tables inside. Check it out and you won't be dissapointed. No credit cards cash only!!

  • Adrian W.

    My favorite Asian food place. The beef fried rice is to die for. No matter how hungry you are, there will be another day's worth of beef fried rice in the fridge. The orange chicken is also great. Very recommendable.

  • Tom R.

  • Steve W.

    Awesome food, I've tried several dishes and was never disappointed. Huge portions and fast service. We eat here almost every week. My faves are the eggrolls, sweet & sour chicken and the crab rangoon.

  • tony r.

    Holy Eggrolls, Batman!!! This place wins the Biggest Serving Size award hands down!!!!! the food itself is good, better than average. the menu has alot of duck and seafood dishes, and they look very nice. but the reason I've given it a 4 star review is because this place gives the biggest portions on a lunch menu that i have ever seen......they are HUGE, and i bet that most people can't finish a lunch special without taking a break....and it's pretty good stuff. they make everything from scratch, and use REAL meats, not that processed food crap. Seriously, you can feed 2 with the lunch special!!!!!!!!!

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
