Mao on a pogo stick. Zimmerman's Midwest "Chinese restaurant" serves Sichuan, Xi’an, and Hong Kong cuisine. That is the equivalent of serving LA, Chicago and Green Bay cuisine. WTF might that be? These three places are thousands of miles apart and server completely different food. Hong Kong eats rice and Xi'an wheat derived food. As soon as you see "mandarin" cuisine or some such, you know the restaurant is Chinese catering to the American local. Nuff said. He's doing the same.

Ya, I agree most Chinese restaurants in the US cater to their local US clientele, and not to authentic Chinese food. While I wish then would make "real" Chinese food, who am I to criticize someone from leaping into the melting pot and selling whatever the locals want?
