New York Style Chinese food is classic delish but is hard to find.
China Dragon on University Boulevard, South near Terry Road in Jacksonville delivers great, East Coast Chinese cuisine with New York flavor. China Town in New York is the US best as far as Chinese cooking is concerned, and other major cities with Chinese American communities typically offer several quality Asian eateries.

Big Chinese taste for busy people on a budget
Opposite a clean, small dining area with tables and chairs and a refrigerator with cold bottled water and soft drinks stands a small counter in front of the restaurant's kitchen. Customers can order to take out or to dine in, and service is reasonably fast and efficient. Locals keep the counter busy, so calling ahead and placing an order by phone is recommended for those who are in a hurry.
Lunch and dinner, New York style
Lunch specials are abundant and include an entree with pork fried rice and free egg roll or soda for only $5.29 plus tax. This is an unbeatable lunch value that tastes great and is perfect for hungry families, busy lunch time professionals, and shoppers.
General Tso's chicken, fried chicken wings, and other specialties are served delicious and piping hot, cooked up fresh. The chicken with curry sauce is amazing. Most Americans shy away from this dish, but China Dragon cooks it expertly with tender chicken, fresh carrots, and onions over white rice.
A full menu is available from appetizers like wonton, fried banana, honey wings, and the pu pu platter for two to hot soup to fried rice, lo mein, and sweet & sour dishes. The diet menu features fresh, steamed vegetables alone with rice or chicken or shrimp. Chef's specialties include favorites like Four Seasons as well as Romeo and Juliet and Hawaii Five "O." Multi-course coupon specials are offered for large orders.
