The chefs at Senor Tequilas pay homage to traditional Mexican fare, crafting satisfying dishes such as mole-topped chicken enchiladas and crispy chimichangas. House specialties include the carnitas michoacan, morsels of slow-cooked pork served with flour tortillas, rice, refried beans, and pico de gallo. Staffers deliver lunch plates filled with the likes of pollo a la chipotle, which features grilled chicken simmered in a piquant chipotle sauce. The menu also offers more than 20 combination platters for diners who prefer to sample several items or test whether or not a taco will fit inside a chile relleno.

A part-time college job turned into a career when John Ko married the daughter of China Dynasty's original owners. John, his wife, and his in-laws are content with maintaining the same traditions that have lasted more than 25 years.

Chinese eggplant in garlic sauce, Cantonese-style roast duck, and spicy Szechwan green beans with chicken represent just a handful of dishes that have endured at China Dynasty over the decades.

In addition to the Buddha statue, China Dynasty features a small collection of traditional Asian artwork and artifacts on its walls, including silk clothing, oversized Chinese hanzi, and baby pictures of the restaurant's first lo mein noodle.
