The best americanized chinese food at the most incredible price huge portions - dinner for 4 under 50 bucks - enough for dinner AND lunch the next day for all four people! Two full bags of food went home after we all ate lots

You would NEVER go into this place just looking at this but whoa amazing value and really really really good!

Remember though - its americanized chinese so you have to like that style...I normally am so so on it but this was GOOD!

We were on our way to Buckhorn Lake and were famished! It was mid afternoon and by the time we decided to stop we had passed all of the restaurant going north on the 115. Finally in the distance we see a restaurant and pull over. We all looked at eachother - "A Chinese restaurant in the middle of no where?!?" In we went. Restaurant is dated but very clean. Service was wonderful and friendly, we were made to feel very welcome. We ordered hot and sour soup, egg rolls, sweet and sour chicken balls (not my choice by the way) and beef with broccoli. The food was EXCELLENT! We are now making that our lunch destination when travelling up north. Do not hesitate to give this place a try - the local have it good! I do believe they have a weekend brunch.

This is the 2nd time we've eaten here.........and both dishes we ordered were again very good. The War Wonton....with shrimp, barbeque pork, bok choy, and lovely wontons was a bit salty for some tastes......but it didn't drown out the nice flavours. The barbeque pork tasted very fresh......not that 'stale' taste you often get in restaurants where it is sitting for a long time. And our other dish was Vegetables with almonds.......and we were surprised that they were unblanched almonds rather than the usual toasted blanched ones........but they were very fresh and tasty, and worked really well with that dish. Usually dishes like that tend to be a bit bland......but this one had lots of flavour. Recommended! Service was great....the proprietor always seems to give everyone special treatment, and the food came very quickly.

I can see Golden Wheel being successful in meeting their customers' palate. The cuisine served is your typical North American Chinese (Cantonese) fare. Generous portions at decent prices - and the patrons were appreciative of the cooking. Myself - my taste buds didn't get tickled, but my dining partners thought it was tasty stuff. We started lunch with 1 egg roll, 2 wonton soups, and then shared a Pork Egg Fu Young, General Tao's Chicken and Fried Beef with Rice Noddle in Black Bean Sauce. Again, large portions such that we split the leftovers into 2 doggie bags.
There's ample parking and it looks like the back half of the restaurant is possibly set up for live entertainment for weekend nights.
