Of course, we are talking about the Pekin Noodle Parlor in Butte, Montana. The Pekin Noodle Parlor has been open for over 100 years and was one of the first restaurants to serve specialties like chow mein and chop suey. The Pekin Noodle Parlor has been run by the same family since it opened in 1911.  

The Pekin Noodle Parlor has been featured in magazines and also, on CBS Sunday Morning. The Pekin Noodle Parlor opened up when the mines were in full swing in Butte and Anaconda but has become a local favorite amongst families and travelers. 

The Pekin Noodle Parlor has a lot of history and hasn't changed since it opened. The restaurant has seventeen booths with privacy curtains. It will throw you back to a time when Butte was a booming mining town. 

I've been lucky enough to have eaten at Pekin Noodle Parlor, and you need to make a trip here. The food is delicious, and their menu has something for everyone. Plus, the prices are incredible. You could get a feast and not break the bank.
