It's a fun, friendly spot
Chop and Wok and Wok Star are a take-out Chinese place and a rock-n-roll dive bar in one. The Chinese place has been at that same corner since the mid 80's. The current owner, Jamie (who is something of a local punk rock legend), added the space across the courtyard a few years ago. Now, it's a cool little compound, with the tiny take-out place and the dinky dive bar separated by a courtyard.?If you want take-out or delivery , this is the best Chinese in the area. The menu is heavily Hunan, with an incredible variety. Everything I've had is just right. The appetizers are stellar. Fried rice is so simple, but this is what I really love from Chop and Wok. If you want to eat in, you can ?order at the takeout counter and grab some patio seating. I usually pull up a stool at the bar, where Jamie, or whoever is manning the taps, will place the order and return when it's ready. Nine-in is still served take-out style, so it's easy to pack up the leftovers. Chop and Wok and Wok Star are open late every night. It's a fun, friendly spot if you're going to stick around or seriously good eats if you just need some Chinese grub.
