It was no doubt a risk. Long River actually opened in the seventies.


I remember going there for Easter dinner once when I was in elementary school. It was probably 1974 or '75. My guess is that two factors primarily contributed to Long River's success. One, it had a monopoly on the Danville Chinese food market. Two, Mei Lung was such a warm and engaging host people felt good about their experiences there and went back for more of the happiness he served.

Speaking of the Roanoke Chinese restaurant circle, my wife grew up in Southwest Roanoke near Tanglewood Mall. I've had several good meals at Red Palace. Was your family in the restaurant business in Roanoke?
