The Peking Restaurant serves good food in Red Bluff. The memorable part of this place is the changeover in food servers... instant change-O... you'll feel like you are in a time warp.

Check out the large martini on this sign. Good to see that the neon works here.

Looking for good Chinese food. Well, King's Chinese Food has a nice sign that's "in the shape of a person." Can't vouch for the food though. Well it turns out the food here is delicious. King's Chinese Food is located on 1500 W Capital Avenue, the main drag in West Sacramento.


UPDATE 07/08 : The sign has been removed. 07-08

UPDATE 11/20 : The restaurant has also closed. See more information here at Roadside Peek's Lost Treasures update on the King's Chinese Food restaurant.

Have no idea what the name means but the Wakano Ura is a place for Chop Suey and Sukiyaki. Appears to be a mix Chinese/Japanese food restaurant.

No Mei Do Chinese Food, a rather catchy name. If you're hungry for some Chinese food cooking, this name will at least catch your attention... subliminally. Let's see... "McDonald's??? NO... MEI DO CHINESE FOOD!...."
