Chop and Wok is a rock ‘n’ roll-themed American Chinese restaurant that has been serving north Scottsdale for more than 30 years. The dimly-lit restaurant and bar feels like an ‘80s and ‘90s throwback, and the menu feels similarly rooted in old-school American Chinese take-out. You’ll probably want to skip the Pu-Pu platter – not for its name, but for its mostly bland assemblage of deep-fried snacks. A standard dish like the house lo mein is more flavorful, as is a spicy Hunan beef plate loaded with well-seasoned scraps of beef. With a huge, sprawling menu of dishes, it pays to ask your server for a recommendation or two.
