Went to this restaurant for dinner on our Route66tour. The chef seemed to be more interested in watching TV than make food. The food was average - so was the service.

The only Chinese in Tucumcari. But that doesn't mean they don't try hard and make great food. Friendly, too. It's a great change from the fast food and the same old boring chains that have taken over many small towns.

My husband and I stopped in Tucumcari for a fun night exploring Rt 66. We're vegetarian and it can be difficult to find places to eat in small towns. Chinese restaurants can offer options, so we decided to check it out. We stuffed our faces with vegetable lo mein, general tso's tofu, vegetable fried rice and egg rolls. It all... More

Went to dinner with 2 friends, the young waitress was more interested in talking to her boyfriend and making phone calls than to properly wait on us. We didn't get plates to eat our appetizers, or sweet and sour sauce for the egg rolls. She never checked on us or offered drink refills. We each ordered an entree to go,... More

Incredibly mediocre Chinese food. That being said, it's an option for vegetarians in an area where there really aren't that many options.

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 get cold... 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
