We used to go here a lot long ago. Went last year and it was raggety, dirty dim and depressing with filthy bathroom but the food was fair. Went again in March for the Friday buffet. Food was lousy and cold. Booths all torn up and scratchy. Waitress brought drinks and cutlery and then ignored us. Not going back. House... More

They have a large variety on two steam tables. The food is good. Good desserts and ice cream. I am now typing so I can fill up space so the review will go throughl

The food is okay. The cushions in the booths are torn and scratchy. Don't even think of using the bathrooms. They are encrusted with calcium deposits all around the toilets. Really filthy. A shame since we used to love going there. No remodeling in 30 years.

We recently had the misfortune of dining at the Golden Dragon. This used to be a nice place. As we walked in we noticed that the place looked dirty, dingy, and dim. The food at the buffet was practically gone as a good number of food trays were almost empty. I went to the men's room to wash my hands.... More

We found this restaurant as we were driving around and decided to stop. The price was $6.99 and we had to check this out. We were pleasantly surprised by the buffet. The food was hot and they were filling it regularly. We found it to be a great deal for the cost. The waitress was very friendly and cleaned our... More

I went there with my sister and we should have left immediately. Not many people there on a Saturday evening, and the buffet was practically empty. What was left was awful and some of the worst food I have ever had. Not much variety, and greasy over cooked dishes. It looked dingy and dirty and the restrooms had much to... More

As a winter Texan I spent 2014-2015 winter in the RGV. I found many Chinese restaurants but Golden Dragon was my favorite and it was the least expensive. I ate at Golden Dragon at least once a week from then on. Never did disappoint, especially at $6.99 all you can eat all day long! Many good selections to choose from.... More

We had a hankering for some good Chinese food and landed at The Golden Dragon. The place was packed on a Saturday night, which was a good sign.Although the variety is limited, what they have is delicious and hot. There was a good selection of meats, vegetables and desserts. The best thing is that two can dine for less than... More

After a bad experience down the street at the Rose Garden this place was a breath of fresh air. The general chicken was tasty not just hot, the beef and broccoli was a good mix and not over cooked. Drive past the Rose Garden about 15 blocks and eat here
