BoBo China (156 and Q Street)

It’s time to redeem myself in the area of Chinese cuisine. I have a place I like to hang out in believe it or not and it’s called BoBo China. I have been going there for about a year and a half. I spotted it while going into Bag and Save one day and always said that I wanted to go in there… It only took me a year and a half to do so. (Bad choice on my part).

When you walk in, you notice the poster board specials taped to the wall, and a white board listing other specials after entering the second door. The place is a pinkish beige color, and it’s rather unpretentious and simple. There are many small tables and one large table for larger families and groups. The menus are sparse and the server will go nab them off another table for you.

The waiter, and I don’t know his name, is a tall oriental man, very thin and lanky. I think he either owns the place or is related to who is. The first few times I went there, I wasn’t too sure about him. Very quiet and reserved. As I continued to frequent the place, is personality began to show. He’s funny. I like him a lot. Once you spend some time there, you will see it too.

ON TO THE FOOD!!!!

Ok, again, I live for eating…. Yes, I know, I should eat to live. Get over it. If I didn’t feel that way, this site would be boring!

Anyway… I have to say that this is one of the top 5 Chinese places in Omaha. The menu is inexpensive, you get a boatload of food, and the flavor in each action packed bite of my Kung Pao chicken is awesome. I can honestly say, that whoever is in back cooking should get a medal. The fried rice is fantastic, and the orange beef is really crispy and tasty. This last time we went there, someone ordered the peanut butter chicken. Oh man… that was tasty. One of my favorite things on the menu is their Egg Rolls. I don’t know if they make them there or what, but they have got the best flavor. The texture of the filling is real good, kind of becoming one piece of meat, instead of over-flowing with veggies that nobody likes.

The garbage to meat ratio (Veggies to meat) is rather low. There are tons of shrimp in my Kung Pao shrimp, and most of the other dishes that I have had are not overloaded with vegetation. They really focus on the flavor of what they are making instead of the profit from it. It’s fantastic. I am really impressed with the consistency and quality of every dish that comes out. The service is real good and they do a good job keeping everything moving.

Overall impression: It’s a little Chinese food hole in the wall that has really good food and good service. I give this place a solid rating! A “Must Have!”

Plusses: Great food, great prices, large portions. Good service and good location if you live in Southwest Omaha.

Minuses: Need menus for each table and sometimes the food doesn’t come out all at once. (Its not too bad, like a minute or two.) I think they need to get boards for their specials and perhaps a professional looking menu for behind the counter that doesn’t involve poster board and a sharpie marker.

I love this place…

    I wanted to give this place 5 napkins, however, it’s a hole in the wall and they got points off for the poster board. I adore this place and I try to eat there as much as I can. Some people in the house get tired of me wanting to go there and make me go other places too.

    I thank you for taking care of my family and I, I love your establishment and will come back often. You truly are one of “Omaha’s Finest” places to dine.

    Mary is retarded. The food’s delicious! I also get my friends and family complaining about me wanting to eat there so much. Being a working teenage male that pays for his own car insurance, gas, and cell phone bill, it’s sometime hard to get there as much as I would like! Look out Bo Bo. Payday’s a-comin’ and you’re first on my list!

    We can’t get enough of BoBo China. It’s great! The YumYum Chicken, Orange Chicken, and Crispy Garlic Beef are to die for! I always eat half of my meal and take the other half home. The leftovers are even great! Oh, and the menu is not limited to a few items like the posting may have been lead to believe, it is loaded with choices. That corner of 156th & “Q” is a favorite of ours with BoBo China, Brewskeys, and now La Mesa. The only thing missing is King Kong!

  8. *SQUEE* I love King Kong, but have you tried Bella’s? THEY have good food. Good stuff I must say. Hmm… Review coming?
