Unbelievable\n\nI have no idea how this truck gets their food so cheap. After work today, I walked over to get some pork fried rice. It was delicious, came in a very generous portion size, was done in around 3 minutes, and I got a free drink. All for $3.25. This is one place I\'m visiting many more times. -Ben Franklin

Overall the truck has been a positive experience. However, on two occasions my vegetable lomein came with twisty ties in the lomein. This has not prevented me from returning. -Hot Leads

It's the best Chinese truck in this area. Their General Tao's chicken is awesome. The only bad thing is the owner has never smiled! -Ammy

I've been going here for many years now. The large numbers of Chinese immigrants that flock to this truck speaks volumes for its quality and authenticity. Try ordering random things from the Chinese menu--but you might get tasty fried fish or interesting beef tendon ;) At peak hours they get quite crowded, so either use the faded out phone number on the Chinese menu to call ahead, or come at non-peak hours. I think the real standouts at this truck are the garlic sauce options and shrimp options, especially shrimp and eggplant (a steal for $4), or the singapore noodles. -Neuronix

Holy crow! I thought I was the only one unlucky enough to find strange things in King's Wok's food! I am a glutton for punishment and get food from King's Wok pretty regularly because it's convenient, but twice I found little rocks in the shrimp with black bean sauce. The pork egg foo young and pork chow fun are the two faves I usually get from there now. -Clarence

This was only the second time I went to King's Wok. The first time I had an egg foo young which was pretty tasty, just a bit too saturated with sauce, but it was still fine and that's why I decided to go back and try some other dishes. While I was happily chewing away to my Sichuan pork and plain fried rice which both only had the taste of soy sauce, I found myself biting into something hard which first I though was a pebble. How surprised was I to find that apparently it was a screw, a rusty dirty screw.... -Ben Franklin

I've heard that this is the closest truck to authentic chinese around. It's tasty and convenient, and seems somewhat healthier than most, since dishes aren't swimming in sauce and provide plenty of veggies. -Ben Franklin
