good option, expensive restaurants, pretty good chicken, overpriced food
Good, cheap fast-food.
Spent the day down in Rainbow harbor and at the aquarium, along with a three hour whale watch. Didn't want to spend a lot on dinner, so I drove up Long Beach Blvd, looking for a something good and cheap. Especially after reading reviews of the uber expensive restaurants in rainbow harbor. Originally, was going to settle on McDonald's. Went so far as even going in. However, I had to use the restroom before ordering. THANK-GOODNESS i DID! There was a used CONDOM stuck to the toilet seat! GROSS! So I turned and ran from the McD's.
Thankfully I found Panda Express down the street on the corner of 5th and Long Beach Blvd. It was clean, open & you could see what was going on in the kitchen! I had the mandarin chicken and fried rice. The chicken was actually pretty good; better than I expected. The rice however was just okay. A little on the bland side!
So all in all, if you're looking to spend your money on activities and not blow it on overpriced food, this was a good option.
