I have been to several Panda Express restaurants in the area and found them to be reasonably good for take-out Chinese food.

Well, the title pretty well sums it up. Sugary syrups for sauces, the meat is tough and the staff on several occaisions were barely civil, let alone helpful and pleasant. Won't be going back obviously.

This is a well kept Panda Express with great management and help. Everything is always hot and full on the counter. The manager is right on top of everything. She has help that are always friendly and helpful. Always offer samples and never rush you.

This place is close to the house, so we'll usually swing by here for food. The only problem I've had when going here is if you catch them later in the evening, they may run out of certain items, and they don't offer to fix another batch.

I am a little hesitant to write this review after reading other reviews on this location however we had a good experience when we visited. This is a fairly new location thus the place was clean inside and out. This is a cafeteria style chinese food place. You order either one, two or three entrees along with rice. The variety... More

I hated the food. They have to pay me to eat there again and it has to be a lot of money!
