888 is a big square room with booths down both sides, tables in the middle and two television sets high on the wall at one end. The clientele includes a lot of Mexican-Americans, and the menu includes some Chinese-Mexican combos like whole mojarra with shrimp fried rice. The mango chicken in garlic sauce is easily the best thing on the menu. It's a tropical-tasting dish that seems only vaguely Chinese.
