Worse food ,dirty. Made us sick had the runs for 3 days. Don't eat there. If you want Chinese either go somewhere else or make it yourself.

Even though they took two of my favorite things off of the menu (sizzling rice soup and scrambled eggs with shrimp) I love this new menu.

Frankly, it used to be better (and cheaper) before the new owners came in. Just average food. I'm not complaining, but my wife chooses to avoid Lok's any more. Too greasy for her.

This restaurant is now under new ownership as of late September, 2015. Most of the same menu items are still available, but the recipes are not the same. I have always ordered the Cashew Nuts Chicken luncheon. Now the chicken comes in tough, thin strips, and is very salty. I liked the old chicken better. The rest of the dish... More

We have one Chinese Restaurant in town, and that's ok, cause its great. We love to come in with family from out of town, because the home-town feel and atmosphere makes all our guests feel comfortable.

We stopped in for lunch at Loks today. Although the lunch dishes were huge, the bulk of it was cabbage and some poorly done fried rice. The flavor on the meat was good, but I left just about everything else on the plate.
