We can't say this applies to every single one of them, but it seems that all the large tour buses stop at these restaurants lined up along the main road, a short drive coming back from the main Buddhist temples at the north end of town. We ate at one of them, and were disappointed with the quality of food as well as the high prices in comparison to some excellent food we ate in downtown Chengde. The shrink-wrapped dishes mean that the restaurant contracts out their dishwashing service to accomodate these large tour groups, we were later told. I think we would've done better to stick with the area in town where locals are on the sidewalk (none were present along this restaurant strip).
