The Original Chinatown Express is a classic neighborhood steam table eatery. The building itself resembles a 1950s drive-in. The old world architecture and space for outdoor seating add to the feeling of nostalgia. Inside the lay out is simple: six tables with four chairs each, and every table has a view of Vine Street. The steam tables offer egg rolls, spicy chicken, fried rice and BBQ pork. A cooler behind the counter contains bottled water, juice, soda and other soft drinks.
