  1. Maybe Noodletown?

    1. Wo hop since I am 16 years old . I am now 58. Still old school good but not gourmet

      1. My dad is a huge Wo Hop (downstairs) fan. I was there with him last summer and we had roast pork chow fun and soft shell crabs. Both were good, kind of what you'd expect from this kind of place, and better than your average take-out joint.
        If you want old style Chinese-American dishes it certainly fits the bill in terms of food and decor.

        1. I'm not sure I've ever been to Hop Kee, but I'd exclude Wo-Hop. I went there once, and their food was really horrendous.

          1. Drunk: Wo Hop downstairs.

            Sober: Hop Kee

              ; D !

            2. I'm an old Wo Hop fan. Yes, it isn't gourmet and the service is...well...service. I've been to Hop Kee afew times and I found their food be OK, but I still prefer Wo Hop's. I vote for Wo Hop.
