Only in America: drive thru Chinese in Banning

Zoe | Jan 19, 2004 11:30 PM

Coming back from Palm Springs we got off at 8th St. in Banning which is the exit before the glut of fast food misery at the next exit just hoping to find some chow in the wall. There it was: AhLoo, the drive in Chinese just a block from the exit on Ramsey. We didn't actually do the drive in but sat in the parking lot with Devil Chow and his missus and ate a very good $4.95 plate freshly, very freshly prepared egg foo young, special chicken (really tender and flavored), rice and huge heap of vegetables and an egg roll. Partner had kung pao shrimp instead of the egg foo. Kicker was the soda - a variety of Mexican sodas, we had tamarind. Nice owner who was a refugee "from the traffic" in San Gabriel. Not high gourmet but fresh, fresh food and tasty ($11.00 for two plates and a soda).

AH Loo,
Ramsey Blvd at 8th St.Exit
