Timmy Chan's Restaurant Review Houston, Texas

Jenn Leach


In this review I'll be talking about Timmy Chan's in Houston, Texas. I'll go over the food, experience, and overall impression. Let's go!

The Food

Timmy Chan's is a restaurant located in Houston, Texas. They have a few locations across the Greater Houston area and this review will be on the Highway 6 location at 6909 S Teas 6 in Houston, Texas.

They do Chinese food and chicken. Some of their menu items include:

  • Lo mein
  • Fried rice
  • Chicken wings
  • Chicken nuggets and rice
  • Cheese puff
  • Vegetable soup
  • Egg drop soup
  • Sweet and sour pork
  • Pepper chicken

I first experienced Timmy Chan's about 3 years ago before I moved to the Houston area. My husband was a fan and he put me onto this place. The first time I ate here I had lo mein and their chicken. And, here's what I've been ordering since then...

  • Chicken wings
  • Lo mein

I have tried a few of their items of the years but I always go back to these staples: chicken wings and lo mein. I'll usually order one or the other unless I'm feeling gluttonous and then I'll order both!

The chicken wings come in a bunch of different flavors like BBQ, teriyaki, buffalo, etc. The best way I enjoy them is plain. The plain wings are breaded, fried, and well-seasoned. They are so good.

I get the whole wings and while they're a little expensive, they are well worth it. My husband and I order at least a dozen and eat them over one or two days. Ask for ranch and you'll have a delicious meal you'll enjoy.

The lo mein comes in two sizes and both are plentiful. These soft noodles are stir fried with veggies and protein. I usually get either the veggie lo mein or the shrimp lo mein. Both are really good and I like to drizzle a little sriracha sauce on it at home.

My husband likes their koolaid which is sweet and refreshing. He will go on and on about it, calling it the best-tasting koolaid.

My husband's favorite is the shrimp fried rice. He calls the shrimp to rice ratio "amazing." You don't get a lot of rice and not enough shrimp, they're actually very generous with the shrimp so you don't have to ration your bites while you're eating.

You can get a small or large. The small is more like a medium. They are very generous. The large is humungous and can feed 4 or 5 people. It's well-seasoned, loaded with fresh, delicious veggies and whole shrimp. It's really, really good.

The Experience

I've only ever eaten Timmy Chan's to-go. They have a drive-thru and to be honest, it will take a while. I'm not sure if they make the food fresh to order but it will take at least 10 or 15 minutes or longer in the drive-thru when you visit.

Is it worth it?


The food is really good and if you visit, you should try a few different dishes to find your favorites. This is what I've done over the years to find my favorites from here.

Overall experience

Timmy Chan's is rated 8 out of 10. They have some of the best chicken wings I've eaten. I usually go for a flavored wing like lemon pepper or korean BBQ flavored but their plain fried wings don't need a thing. They are crispy, seasoned to perfection and so good. You'll be craving it the next day, I promise.
