A little above average

We ate a late lunch here and it was an average to above average Chinese buffet. It's better than some but was missing selections that I was craving like a good General Tso and a good Teriyaki. In their defense it was a busy time for some reason and they don't over do their buffet so it doesn't... read more

Well where does someone start. Stopped for lunch buffet. It was 12:30 so we thought it would still be a good buffet. Well whatever was at the buffet, was gone. No attempt to fill pans that were empty. Waitress sat us done and never came back. Food was dried up and not good. I would not stop and will not... More

Staff were nice but service was a little slow. Not terrible food but not the best we've ever had-starchy Rangoon and rice was rather bland. No duck sauce-just sweet/sour.

We were staying at the Roadrunner and ran across the street to have dinner at the Golden Dragon. We had eaten there nearly 20 years ago, and we swore it looked exactly the same! The interior could use an update and probably a deep cleaning. The hostess/waitress was friendly and professional, even with many customers coming in and calling in.... More

The vegetables were a little crispier than I prefer, but the food was flavorful and the prices were reasonable.

Sorely disappointed in what I found. I stopped by at 12:30 for the all you can ea buffet. Some of the food wa burnt, some was totally dried out and other inserts were empty. Would not suggest this restaurant.

All the food on the buffet was very good. Great price and everyone working there was very nice. Would go back again when in the area. Right on Route 66.

Ordered from the Rodeway Inn and food was delivered in a short time. They did NOT include plates which was a pain but the hotel gave us some to use.

surprising selection for a small town buffet. Decor is dated but so is the rest of Tucumcari for the most part. Food tasted good but was not hot, some was just barely warm. Best thing on the buffet for me was a chicken and potatoes curried dish which was very good. Had to get up and find someone to get... More

Most everything in Tucumcari is very old and dated, this restaurant is no exception. However, the food was excellent and the service was great. Very tasty food. Not much to look at from the outside or inside, but we didn't have to spend an "Arm and a Leg" for a great meal.
