The popularity of Dragon Express as a take-out restaurant leads to problems with parking in the Jordan Village parking lot. There are signs in every spot indicating for which business they are allocated and saying that you will be towed if you are not parking there for that specific business.
However, there are not enough spots allocated for Dragon Express and often times people park in spots reserved for employees or spots for the other businesses. It is generally considered to be OK, so long as you are there for Jordan Village businesses (especially evenings when some of the other businesses are closed), as the signs are mainly to deter students from parking there and walking to class.
Phone book confusion
When you look in the phone book for "Dragon" you will find Dragon Chinese Restaurant listed first followed by Dragon Express LLC. Both are on 3rd Street and have very similar menus, but they are on completely opposite sides of town. Apparently several people have called in orders to the Dragon Chinese Restaurant and gone to Dragon Express to pick them up.
Forms of payment
Dragon Express only accepts cash or check. There is an ATM located in the parking lot right outside of the restaurant.
