China King Restaurant

7320 W Lawrence Ave
Harwood Heights, 60706
Reviews:
The Chinese food is pretty typical American Chinese food. I've ordered delivery from here several times and my food has always been correct and delivered in a timely manner. But the SMOOTHIES holy goodness the SMOOTHIES! I get several every time and just stick them in the fridge they are so fresh and delightful. I especially love the Kiwi and the Watermelon. Yum!
I had to update my review because the assistant manager Paul reached out to me after viewing my previous Yelp on my bad experience. Paul apologized for my bad experience and offered to refund my entire meal. This act alone made me come on and leave and update. Stand up establishment, and maybe I caught them on a bad night. Who knows but either way, customer service here should be the standard everywhere.
I ordered chicken w/vegetables online on the website. I received a conformation e-mail that I requested my order successfully and I want it delivered at 3:15. It was 2 o clock. I didnt choose or write that I want it next hour. I wanted it as soon as possible. They deliver it in 15minutes, its very close from the place where I was. Called them, a lady picked up the phone and completely could not understand me when I was trying to explain. She asked what is my problem, i gave her a conformation number I received, phone number and address was repeated 3 times to her. They took money from my account but she said they DONT HAVE an order from me. I said if you cant find it then thank you very much and hanged up. In 40minutes older chinese guy came with an order. I received only vegetables, no chicken. Ridiciolous. It was my first and last time experience with them.

Twins Gyros

4870 N Harlem Ave
Harwood Heights, 60706
Reviews:
Very discrete place that you would not expect solid gyro plate, especially being in a strip mall, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had the gyro plate, and the portions were really generous, and the gyro meat was nice and moist, rather than dry, like so many places. I also added a side Greek salad, which was good. Only recommendation would be not to stuff the container so full, because it was difficult to eat in the beginning, without salad constantly falling out of the bowl on to my tray. All in all, it may be my new go to meal when I'm on my way to O'Hare, and don't want to eat in the airport.
Just moved into the neighborhood and we tried the gyro with fries and a burger. Gyros are plentiful and def shareable! It's def one of the best gyros I've had in the city. Everything was delicious and the staff was friendly. I also noticed that they deliver. Score!!
I tried the gyros plate and I have to say it was just average at best. I was expecting much more with" Gyros " in their name. I thought it would be better or a cut above other Gyros places in the area but it's the same old giant hunk of meat rotating around that all the others use. Nothing really stands out about the meal, it was kind of on the small side for my tastes and the fries were unsalted. The interior of the restaurant seems to be getting old and tired the countertop is falling apart the floors are kind of greasy and the ceiling tiles are all fading and yellow it's time for an update.

Reviews:
Great look,food and drinks.The only thing is if standing at the bar and talking to others the servers keep passing by with trays of food and not enjoyable then.But over all very good and reasonable. Good Luck.
The owners are very friendly! The food is delicious, I had the filet and lobster which was 36.95 I believe, a very good deal. We had Carlos as our waiter and he was awesome, very attentive. A great time was had by all! Highly recommendable! Chef Tino is amazing with food!
We came here last Tuesday night. Our food was great the service attentive but not overbearing. It's a very nice restaurant in an area that has lots of family places but few places for a nice date night. This is a great date night restaurant. I think it's a great addition to the neighborhood. We will return soon!

Pepe’s Mexican Restaurants

4610 N Harlem Ave
Harwood Heights, 60706
Reviews:
Pepe's really disappointed me. I wanted fish tacos so I asked how big was the tilapia fish she said they don't use the whole tilapia so when my food came what she said was true I think they use one tilapia for three tacos. I have been other places where they use the whole fish for one taco. Now I had a fruit strawberry margarita blend I guess she didn't want to make a lot of noise because the ice cubes wasn't blended all the way ...I don't know about coming back
The food is great, the service is great, but the restaurant is so beyond out dated. The booths are gross i refuse to sit in a booth there so they sit me at a table with an un safe chair i felt as if i moved around a lot a leg would fall off. The bathroom is no better turn the sink on and water is leaking out the sides. I really don't understand why they don't want to put money back into there business here?
I was going write 3 stars because of how great the food use to be, but after my experience the other night I have to go with 2. The only reason I am giving 2 stars is because the chips and salsa are still the best ever! Anyway here we go I have been visiting this Pepe's for years and the service has been declining but the food was always good, so it was worth it. Last night we went to Pepe's for dinner they sat us in a booth that wobbled, ok so we asked to be moved, they said ok and took 15 minutes to come back over and when they did the waitress tried taking our order. Really? So I asked again before she took the order can we please move our booth is wobbling. She smiled and said oh I forgot, and showed us to another table closer to the kitchen. Ugh, but whatever I am starving, so after she sat down our menu she walked away without taking our order!! It took my husband actually walking up to the bar where she was standing and asking her if she was going to wait on us. So couple minutes later here she comes. Mind you by this time we don't even have our drinks yet, and not that we are ordering any alcoholic beverage these are simply cokes we are trying t o get. FINALLY our food comes and it wasn't good. My tacos looked like they were thrown together, the food was not even plated nicely(like it usually is), my rice was cold and my husband's order was wrong, he asked for only cilantro & onion inside his burrito and it had everything in it. We complained and they offered to remake it but by this time it was late, we had to get home to our children, so we just ate it as it was. The food was bad, I have had ordered food from other places that has been messed up, it happens. But usually when it was time to pay the restaurant manager or owner, or whoever would always at least ask if we wanted money off or something like that, to try to be nice and normally we won't accept it, it's the gesture that means the most, at Pepe's not even I am sorry, nothing. I will not go back to this Pepe's!! I cannot honestly say I won't go back to another in the future, the chips & salsa are soo YUMMY!! Hopefully we will have a better experience at a different location!!

Old Warsaw Buffet Bar & Banquets

4750 N Harlem Ave
Harwood Heights, 60706
Reviews:
I was just here a couple days ago to celebrate a birthday. We have been here a few times previously and I would say my review would be identical every time. The food here is very good. It's not exactly the way my Polish relatives cooked everything, but nonetheless it is quite tasty. The best thing about the weekend buffets is that they have Paczki (the best filled "donuts" ever!!!) My only complaints here are that drinks are not included in the price (and the price is a bit high for it not to be included) and that the service is ALWAYS horrible. There is never someone at the door to greet you, and they always look so angry and are never smiling. They barely even say hello and it is something that always gets brought up at the table, no matter who we go there with. It's very strange and uncomfortable because of it. I will probably come back here with family again, but we honestly would come here more often if the service was better and if the drinks were included in the price.
My Mom's birthday falls on Mother's day and she will only eat polish food . As you all know all restaurants are packed , so l made a reservation @ Old Warsaw thinking it's gonna be quick and kids can make their choice based on visual appearance . There was a lot of large groups of people, so my assumption is reservations . Should be prepared with enough kitchen employees ! Not so !!! Buffet was almost empty most of the time ! They have a meat carving station, but no one carving and when there was a person to carve .........my grandson wanted a turkey leg ( don't like white meat ) was told he can't have it because it will loose it's appearance . Display only ??? So now after everyone's disappointment here comes the bill ! SPECIAL MOTHER'S DAY PRICING !!! Let me remind you l made reservations and no one mentioned at any time any price change . Almost DOUBLE regular price !!!! For what ??? Empty buffet !!!
NOP!!! Not coming back! Just for your information, I'm Romanian and i can cook everything that's being served here 100times better... Last time i've been here (2yrs ago) i wasn't a vegetarian... And the food still wasn't good. And now that i'm a vegetarian... It is horrible! All the veggies have the weirdest taste. And there are only about 4-5 things i can eat(warm food) and taste horrible. There are a lot of salads but they are all drenched in sauces... And the chicken soup, I tasted it from my husband, it tasted like it was made from the oldest hen one could find... And my 1yr old daughter was with me and i didn't have the courage to give her any food from here. Thank God i had a banana with me!

Awful! Let me start with the chicken fried rice. Gooey stuck together rice with little squares of chicken seasoned with soy sauce, thats it Oh and it was tastless. Come on how can you call yourself a chinese restaurant. Next the mongolian beef was also tastless, not even a little spicy and had bad pieces of the onion mixed in. I think it was the outter skin of the onion, lets not waste anything. Dont waste your time on ordering the vegetable egg rolls. They were soggy and you cant figure what the vegetables were inside. Dont waste you time and money on this place.
The food was nothing to speak of. Orange chicken was rubbery. The egg rolls were ok but the crab rangoon was terrible. We threw it away.
great food,atmosphere and prices.i live in the area,and its hard for me to find a chinese restaurant that i like.its either the place that is terrible or the food.but this one has it all.very satisfied;))

McDonald’s

6400 W Montrose Ave
Harwood Heights, 60706
Reviews:
There is a young, afro-american male who usually takes my order at the window. he is the jolliest and most cordial person I've ever met at any McDonald's. When I first met him, I asked him if he was the supervisor, because of his professional appearance and personality. I usually order 10 meat patties for my dogs (when I don't have time to give them boiled chicken), and he always gets my order right. Besides that, the meat patties cost about $.67 cents here and at the McDonalds on Harlem Ave., south of Addison; whereas in other places, each patty costs $1.00 The thing is that when you ask for an unusual item and the person taking your order doesn't know what you are asking for, they'll put you on hold until they get the manager. I don't get this solitary hold, at either of these places, so I give them a 4-star; reason being that one day I was ready to leave the parking lot at the Montrose restaurant, heading west on Montrose, and the delivery trailer came zooming into the lot, and forced me to swerve sharply to the right to avoid a collision. He apologized, and then he said there were cars behind him, and he had to get the trailer into the parking lot to avoid a collision, etc. Other than that, their WI-FI is great, because you can stay there as long as possible, and no one bothers you. I must also admit that the employees who work there, need to practice making ice cream cones because mine is usually lop-sided, flat, or dripping on the sides. The employees work hard to make this a pleasant restaurant to visit.
After playing at Dunham Park we head to McDonalds. The service is fast and accurate.
And these people want $15 dollars an hour? Maybe you should get my order correct, and give me the correct change, first. They also charge 50 cents for refills here. First time I've been here, and it's the last. At least the rest rooms were clean. The "dining room" could use a little help, though.

On my quest to find a good Chinese food restaurant on the Northwest side of Chicago, a friend of mine recommended this restaurant. My friend added that her son and niece loved and frequented this place. So I decided to give it a try, on the Chinese New Year Day! I ordered carry out and waited 35 minutes for my food and I was the only person in the restaurant. My order included Kung Pao Chicken, Mongolian Beef, Shrimp Fried Rice and Singapore Noodles. Where do I start? My kids and I were so hungry and couldn't wait to get home. The funny thing about our ride home, I noticed that I didn't smell the deliciousness of the food, especially since Chinese Food will let its presence known, especially in the car! First, I tried the Singapore noodles, and they were very bland, I think they forgot to add the curry spice and soy sauce. Next, I tried the Kung Pao Chicken, it was extremely bland and watery, I was very dissapointed since Kung Pao Chicken is one of my favorite dishes. I tried the shrimp fried rice, unfortunately this was bland and the rice was hard, not fully cooked, I hope that I don't get indigestion tonight!!! I saved the best for last, well figuratively speaking! The final dish I tried was the Mongolian Beef, and the large amount of onions mixed amongst the little scraps of meat made me think "where's the beef?". This dish was blended in with a peculiar tasting brown sauce, at first I couldn't pin point it. After each bite, I had a strong bitter after taste. I finally figured it out, the noodles were rancid, and yes my nose confirmed it, that peculiar smell of rancidness, ugh! So much for my quest to find a good Chinese Food Restaurant on the North Side. I can't believe that this place received good reviews, bland pallets, I guess. I absolutely do NOT recommend this place. Very dissapointed!!!!!
Very uneven food quality. It seemed to be better in early 2010, but seems to have changed management or cooks or something. I used grubhub to have food delivered the last time I ordered, and when the food came it was inedible. When I called to complain, they told me to bring the food back. The point of delivery is to not have to get in the car! Anyway, I received my money back from grubhub without incident, but will not order from here again.
I wouldn't go back. Food was blah. I ate in the restaurant and service was horrible... I got up and got my own silverware and napkins. Never brought water. I agree.. the girl just played on her laptop with her boyfriend the entire time. Doesn't accept discover card either. Go to Sun Eng a little further South on Harlem... way better food staff and a great lunch special!

Oh, the sacrifices I make for my dog. I quit eating McD's burgers a long time ago because I question their beef. I don't come for their French fries anymore because they haven't tasted as good as they used to. It's been so hot walking my dog lately that I have been making an exception, a special stop, for a Coke and a cup of tap water. McD's still has their fountain machine dialed in perfectly for a great tasting soda, which I think is remarkable. If my dog is in between meals, I'll order their chicken nuggets as a treat. Just the other day, I decided to order the 10pc meal. I was too hungry to care and ten is plenty for sharing. The one and only time I actually ask for dipping sauce, I didn't get any. No one informed me they were out of honey mustard and asked if I wanted an alternative flavor, I had to ask. The service was OK. Three young employees working behind the counter together. I noticed none of them wore latex gloves as they refilled the ice cream cone dispenser. As I witnessed them touching every one of those cones with bare hands, I cringed. TIP: Always look inside the bag and double check everything before driving thru or walking out.
I did drive thru. All I wanted was a medium iced hazelnut coffee, light cream. It was like pulling teeth! Finally I said forget it and went to McDonald's by Jeff Park bus terminal. Sheesh!
I ordered my usual iced coffee this morning from the drive-thru. There was a moderately long line of cars ahead of me, but the line moved quickly and I pulled up to the 1st window and pay for my order seemingly in no time at all. I wasn't in a hurry to be somewhere this morning, so I began to wonder if I was rushed to be somewhere, would the line have move as quickly?? Ah, whatever... I got my iced coffee quickly, served with a smile from the person at the 2nd window. Had time to sip and write a review. Now I'm heading off. I'll be back here sometime future when the need arises....
