The only thing that can be said about the place is that it is cheap. The food is not that great. I would not go back. I like Chinese food, but not here.

Stopped by the Golden Dragon based on TA reviews and positive experiences at other similar named Chinese places like the Golden Dragon in Laramie, Wyoming. What a mistake!! I ordered the chicken chop suey and I am not kidding, it tasted like it came from a can of La Choy. Salty brown sauce with canned bean sprouts, celery, and carrots.... More

Just stopped in one Saturday afternoon seeking something gluten-free. And there they were, these lovely small cupcakes. Tasty. According to their board more gluten-free items put in an appearance on Tuesday. Good to know.

I only have great things to say about the Golden Dragon. The food is always served fresh and hot and the owners are sweet and wonderful people. I've never had anything that I didn't like but my wife and my favorites include pepper steak, shrimp with lobster sauce, shrimp Cantonese, and sweet and sour chicken. Just great food at a... More

Love this place. Family owned and operated. Very clean. Food is always fresh and consistent. The green pepper steak is amazing. The crab rangoon and egg rolls are awesome too. Very inexpensive and great portion sizes. Highly recommended. Only place I go for Chinese.
