Green Valley Parkway in Henderson, Mara Willick and Cathy Brown recommended China A Go Go, which has several locations in the valley, and Glenn Barrett said he likes it at the Teriyaki Co. at 719 N.

Eastern Ave. in Henderson; Janet Tonelli suggested AP Grill & Tavern, 1231 American Pacific Drive in Henderson; and Catherine Pawelek, co-owner of Elements Kitchen & Martini Bar at 4950 S. Rainbow Blvd., said they alternate between a breaded pork tenderloin and a breaded pork chop. …
