We came here for the salt and pepper chicken wings which this place is popular for. There must have been like 20 catering trays full of wings lined up ready for pickup. My parents and I stopped here for lunch before heading up to Julian. Food is good, affordable and THEY GIVE YOU BIG PORTIONS, so please consider that before... More

This restaurant is large but because it is so good there is often a short wait for a table. They do a robust takeout business. The staff are efficient, attentive and quick otherwise the atmosphere would be chaos. Try the salt and pepper fried chicken. I salivate thinking of it.

Well I must say that we were impressed. If you are looking for some nice chinese food that is not greasy, please stop here. The portion sizes are huge and you will definitely get full. Also, the salt and pepper chicken is to die for! The service was exceptional! It was nice that our server was from wisconsin too.

We chose this restaurant because we wanted to avoid the chains, and were hoping to find a real chinese restaurant with authentic recipes and flavors, so we made a trip to Golden Chopsticks after reading the positive reviews. We were three people and ordered the fixed menu for two plus a half peking duck which is one of my favorites.... More

If you are looking for a great Chinese restaurant in San Diego, CA, I strongly recommend Golden Chopsticks located in National City. They have a wide variety of Chinese entree to choose from but this place is popular for their fried chicken wings. Great price, outstanding service and they give huge portions. The restaurant is always busy so call ahead... More

Best S&P Chicken Wings I've had in years. Has a light batter and amazing flavor. Will come back just for the wings.

Awesome and delicious are the words I use to describe the Salt And Pepper wings at Golden Chopsticks. An order of wings were $10.50 for about 12 to 13 wings, so I bought two orders and it was a lot. The parking could be an issue at the plaza, so give your self some time. I got to the restaurant... More
