Not a place for atmosphere - be patient with the help as they speak broken English. The food is worthy, very fresh and authentic. Try the roasted duck...

Throughout the metroplex there are several First Chines BBQ's - this one is probably on the lower side of the others. However, the food is still authentic, freshly prepared and great value. The atmosphere is terrible, the food will makeup the difference. Cash only...

Rather plain restaurant with a very wide ranging menu including many dishes not commonly found in an American Chinese restaurant. Roasted pork, chicken,and duck hang in the display case. Staff is happy to answer questions and guide the diner. They do not take credit cards

I have been here many times. I really enjoy their lunch specials. They have a huge menu as well. Bring cash.

The absolute best "chinese food" I have had in or take out. I did not know what I was missing until I ordered from First Chinese BBQ. Spectacular! The restaurant is not close to my house and you must pay in cash, neither of which is convenient. However, I am happily inconvenienced at least once a month for the mouthwatering... More

This is a wonderful little VERY traditional Chinese restaurant serving mostly Hong Kong style food. BE AWARE - this is NOT your "Americanized" Chinese food restaurant - this is REAL Chinese food. A buddy of mine and I go there frequently, and usually we are the only English Speaking Caucasians in the place. The wait staff is always VERY Chinese,... More

This is the worst Chinese bbq restaurant that I've been to. Small protion, bad quality, and tastes nothing like the other first chinese bbq. I wish I had driven to the other location instead. This is my first time at this location and will be my last time. If you don't want to feel cheated out of your money, stay... More

This place is off the charts all 5 of them are great if you want to surprise someone with hanging dogs and pigs from the ceiling this is the place. By the way the food is outstanding as well.

Having grown up eating delicious Cantonese food in Hawaii, then working in Asia for 20 years and now in North China (also lived and worked 11 years all over DFW), this is one of only 3 Chinese Restaurants that I recommend in the DFW area. (Could be a few more but 95% are American Chinese for American tastes.) Why? Authentic... More

The food was excellent. Best shrimp wonton soup around. I recommend the shredded pork crispy noodle. Fast service. The only downside is it is a cash only establishment.
