'House of China' up by Home Depot / HEB is great. We've eaten in there and also ordered take-out for delivery, both were very good. Seems to be a family-run outfit vs a chain.

I've heard good and bad about them. We haven't tried it yet but on your recommendation, we're going to give it a try. The pressure is on!

Never did find what I would consider "good" Chinese fare in SA. Guess I've been spoiled by SF and NYC domestically. You keep searching though.

It also depends on what you call good Chinese. I have friends at work from China. I asked them where good places to eat Chinese food are and they pointed me to the local buffets.

I like China Garden on Marbach/Hunt Lane; just your usual fare. Delivery is speedy too!

Seriously? Do you mind telling me which buffet they think it's good?
I personally like Kim Wah Chinese BBQ on Bandera. If you like authentic Chinese food, get something off the Special Board they have up on the wall. Also try their "peking duck two ways". Of course, it won't be as good as those restaurants in LA, NYC or even Austin but that's the closest thing you can get here.

Well, what's funny is some Chinese or even Asian folks in general are wishy washy about the Chinese food they eat.

I have a friend that likes chicken feet and other stuff they serve with Dim Sum, that's more on the authentic side. But when it comes to getting fast food Chinese food, he'll just go with the Americanized dishes of Broccoli Beef and/or Orange Chicken (or sweet n sour chicken/pork) even though there are some more authentic alternatives served as well. More authentic as in less common to Americans in general and what an Asian person may actually cook at home, like various stir fry dishes and curry. What one gets at a restaurant isn't usually what is cooked at home, also true for Indian dishes as I've learned from Indian coworkers.

Perhaps OaklandR's friends may be of the same type as my friend.
