Nothing outstanding about their food, but it was tasty. The place is small, but cozy. The waitress was very friendly.

Food is fresh and very tasty. I especially liked the Orange Beef. Moo shu pork is also good. Potstickers are a little dry. Beer is rather pricey. I will eat here again for dinner. Haven't tried lunch.

Every time we are in town we have lunch at the Great Wall at least once. Their lunch specials are cheap and the portions are large. I haven't had a bad meal there. I mean...it's chinese food, in Salida!

I'll preface by saying we ordered carry out, by the time I found the place and returned to our motel to eat the food was not great, very soggy. It was pretty pricey too.

Great Wall has excellent food prepared fresh. Every meal we have had is excellent but be prepared for a big bill at the end.

The food was really good. There was a lot of flavor in the dishes. It wasn't too greasy for Chinese food. I would eat here again.
