It's easy to drive past Bek-Hee without giving the place a second glance. Set amid strip malls and budget apartment complexes on Page Avenue, the restaurant blends into the north county landscape as "just another chop suey joint." That’s not completely inaccurate. Bek Hee's menu contains all of the Chinese greasy-spoon staples: St. Paul sandwiches, hot braised chicken, pork fried rice with gravy. However, hidden among these inauthentic dishes are some traditional gems that, when word gets out, will put Bek Hee on the map. The small restaurant is owned by the Lin family, expats from Sha County in China, that is famous for its culinary tradition -- legend has it, Sha's cooking style descends directly from the Han royal family that fled to Sha in 221 AD. Some Sha-style gems on Bek-Hee's menu include the housemade pork egg rolls and vegetarian spring rolls, both made from scratch (including the wonton wrappers), overstuffed and fried to a crisp golden brown. The homemade dumplings are also a must try -- the pork filled gems are delicious in their own right, but the accompanying "dumpling sauce," a Lin family secret recipe, is divine. Also noteworthy are the house special lo mein and the Singapore chow mei fun, both made with homemade noodles. Bek-Hee proves why Sha cooking is fit for a king.

Imagine a flashback to the '50s — a simpler time with simpler foods, with drive-up dining and a few stiff, dine-in booths. Enter American burger joint Chuck-A-Burger, where burgers are cooked to order on a stainless-steel flat-top and emerge full of real-meat flavor, complemented by fresh, crisp, hand-cut toppings of lettuce, tomato and onion. Also available are catfish sandwiches, cushy and delicious beef tamales, Coney Island dogs, vanilla Cokes and malts—fast food with 1950s flair. This location is located in Overland.
This small, brightly colored restaurant is a family affair, with owner Diane Dinh and her ex-husband Dinh Dang handling the kitchen duties, while several of their children staff the front of house. The menu features very good renditions of Vietnamese favorites including pho, banh mi and platters with pork chops, egg cakes and broken rice. Suon ram man -- spareribs steamed and then simmered in a clay pot with a complex sweet, salty and spicy beef stock-based sauce -- are a standout.
