I have to say, I like dinner here better than lunch. I got a lunch special once, and it tasted like it might have been sitting there for a minute. But the DINNER is SUPERB. I've had the General Tao chicken and the chicken lo mein. I'm from the southern US, and they make Lo Mein there with a thicker,... More

We have been going to Jean's for many years and highly recommend the restaurant. The place is small, but delivers quality food. We try the take out and are never disappointed; food is ready by the time we get there. The combination plates are enough for two persons. We love the Ginger Beef and their Spring Rolls.

Four of us enjoyed the lunch at Jeans! General tao chicken is delicious! Other menu that we ordered are eggplant, special fried rice and got free white rice. A recommended place to eat for groups

It's been almost 2 years since I wrote a review for Jean's. It is still my go to location for Chinese food and it is still consistently good. I have never had a bad experience. I recently ate in with a friend. The order came out quickly and was very good. My take out experiences have always been great. I... More

I was introduced to this Chinese place a few years ago by my partner and now when I come to town it is the one place I request to go and eat at. The dining room is nothing special but the food is! Great prices, good service and big portions.

At first glance you would probably walk by as it looks like a little hole in the wall place. Yes, the dining room could use a bit of cleaning....but the food overpowers that aspect. Your plate is very FULL for the price you pay. I have never went where I could eat the food in one sitting...and the leftovers are... More

My wife and I went for dinner. The spring roll was fresh and tasty. We shared the Do Dop Voy which was very nice and Jean's Spicy Beef which was good as well. Although the food is good. If you are looking for ambiance this is not the place. Small and not well kept. But friendly staff. Good for take... More

2 normal people can share a combo here. Their ginger beef is delicious. Authentic Chinese? No. Yummy? Yes.

Jean's is very dirty and in need of maintenance in the dining room and people should look at the food inspector's reports about their kitchens. Our "Sizzling Seafood Plate" and "Chinese Vegetable in Garlic Sauce" were both just salty, salty and flavorless. My daughter and I are both ill afterwards.

Fluctuated between a two and three star review. Good: food arrived hot and delivery is so cheap. Bad: food was just so bland. We had chicken fried rice some of which was burnt. The honey spare ribs were so dried out and the beef was rubbery and broccoli was brown in parts. I had heard good things but was not... More
