    The food was amazing! The Chinese/Mexican twist is perfect for our family. I love Chinese, husband loves Mexican.

    First time visitor but the staff was friendly and helpful. Jade chicken was good, not too spicy. The wife would have hoed the place was a little cleaner but all and all very pleased.

    If you're feeling particularly hungry, get the two sides plus one of the rice flavors and beans! There's so much to mix and match.

    Carnitas quesadilla with black beans and jerk fried rice! Emerald chicken is legit. Snickerdoodle cookies are to die for.

    Black beans are amazing! No place like Chino's anywhere I've travelled. I get here at least once whenever I'm in Phoenix. It's a hole in the wall that's been there for 20 years, with the same menu.

    Is it more of a Mexinese... Or is it a bit more Chinexican? Honestly I can't decide. But it's good food and a divey atmosphere. Perfect.

    Love the Red Jade Chicken! It is a fun place with a lot of character. The ordering can be a little overwhelming but staff are happy to help.

    An Arizona icon. Enough said. No matter what you try, somehow it always appeals to your taste buds. A must visit at least once, then you are hooked!

    The obvious standouts are the ever-popular Jade Red chicken and sweetly delicious Snickerdoodles, but there isn't much on the menu not worth sampling. Great service, impossibly good food.

    What's not to love? Such an amazing wreck of Asian and Latin cuisines all together on the same plate. I love it.
  • Christopher M.
    The menus are a confusing pain in the ass to fill out but the food is epic. EVERYTHING is delicious!

    If you're new thy will give you samples, there's so many options it's nice to narrow it down!

    My combo of choice...Jade Red Chicken, Carnitas Burrito, fried rice & beans. Mmm!
  • Sara Z.
    Been wanting to try this place for years! Lived up to my expectations. Kind of a hole in the wall, but the people are incredibly friendly and helpful and the food was good. We'll definitely return!

    Yummy! Be sure to ask for the samples to help you decide what you like. I liked the black beans, Carnitas, and BBQ pork. But the ginger chicken sample was really good too (will get that next time!)

    Fusion!!!! Do red Jane Chicken in a burrito. Then Emerald Chicken in a quesidilla. Do the fusion for the real deal

    Get a combo with a quesadilla. I prefer the Chinese pork in the bowl and the jerk chicken in the quesadilla. And the pork jerk fried rice is delish!

    Went here on 4/1 and honestly the food was a joke. I love this place and I have never bad a complaint but the jfr was bland and not even spicy, and my friends pfr was so greasy. Black beans were runny

    I love getting the Jade Red Chicken or the Machaca in a quesadilla! The cheese balances out the spice very well. Yum!

    An impeccably unorthodox mix, this place meshes mexican and chinese food and creates delicious meals like jade red chicken quesadillas with black beans and rice. Don't knock it 'til you try it!

    This place is amazing! Great service and awesome food. I recommend Jade Red Chicken and BBQ Pork Quesadilla (have to eat it with plum sauce though).

    My boyfriend LOVES this place! He dragged me here & I fell in love. Atmosphere is ok, but the food is great "pig out" food! Enchiladas & fried rice in one entree! I'm vegetarian & I was able to eat.

    So good, but somewhat pricey depending on what you order. Their volcano cookies are amazing!

    Make sure to do a chinese/mexican combo.... Dont just get all of one or the other like a rookie. The chile relleno is great and the machaca beef is great too.

    I'm from Texas and I came here with a friend who lives here. If you wanna try something mind-blowing, GET THE EMERALD CHICKEN.

    12Q- it is a salad in a tortilla, but somehow it works. I suggest eating it there, though- it is not as good when it is not hot.

    I have been going to Chino for several years, Jade Red & Black Beans are always my standards. Recently discovered a Chile Relleno in a burrito... Pancho Panda you have blown my mind!

    Asian-Mexican Fusion. Take time to understand the menu before you order because you'll be overwhelmed.

    The best thing about this place besides the food is the fact that people of all cultures, all ethnicities love eating here. It's amazing that this food appeals to such a broad spectrum of people! Woot

    Be sure to tell 'em if it's your first time! Jade Red Chicken in a quesadilla is WAY better than it has any right to be.

    For those with island palates, try the Chinese BBQ, Emerald Chicken or the Carnitas (think Kalau Pork & Lomi Lomi intertwined). But in the end, it's *really* all about the Snickerdoodle.
