    Food is not as good as it used to be.This food was great about 10 years ago when me and my friends would get drunk and order chinese. but then again i was whacked out of my mind so the food was probably never that good. save your money.

    The food is not good,and the prices are just as expensive as Chinatown. The egg roll was dry and tasted like sawdust. The sweet and sour shrimp were soggy and totally tasteless without the sauce. Also, I have never had mei fun noodles swimming in soy sauce. Needless to say, I will be ordering elsewhere from now on.

    Poor tasting food.

    JC's Chinese Restaurant should be closed down. We ordered delivery. Everything finally arrived after an hour or so. We did not receive the food that we ordered. JC's got some of our order mixed up. Not wanting to cause problems, we tried what JC's delivered to us. All the food was cold. It was not edible. Tasted leftover. The vegetables were slimey. YUK!

    Chicken not Good

    We ordered Chicken and Broccoli. It was mostly all broccoli and only a few pieces of inferior chicken. The chicken tasted almost spoiled as if it was very old or very cheap quality. Poor tasting food. No value. Not worth the price.

    Pretty poor

    I ordered sesame chicken with wanton soup. Soup was good. Chicken was worse. First of all it was delivers in one of those plastic quart containers you get soup in, so it was LOADED with their sauce. The sauce was pretty poor, kinda just tasted like ketchup, but everything was soaked in it so it made it even worse. Also it came to 15 bucks but whatever. Wouk not recommend or even eat for free. Also Mike Deccio rated this best Chinese in the city, while only commenting on the wings and seafood. Wat

    J.C is still on top after all these years

    J.C is by far the best chinese food in south philadelphia. Me and my family ordered on a friday night. We ordered J.C world famous wings. When i tell you they are out of this world i mean it. They should take their special sauce and market it and send it to the frozen food isle in the supermarkets. We also ordered the seafood special. The size of shrimp and lobster meat is HUGE. Plus all the other seafood in it. It was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right and it was a great porportion. We also had the general chicken which was so good. The product that J.C cooks is so fresh and tasty. I actually called the owner that night to tell him the food is the best chinese food in the city. I could not complement him enough. J.C is the pioneer of chinese food in philadelphia and will always my favorite place to eat.
