When they first opened - they brought in the "A" team to get them going. Food was great. Service was quick. Now? Neither has anything to say for them. Slow and the food is pedestrian.

Tried this Pick Up Stix and was very disappointed. The food took forever and was very greasy. The meat was not even average quality and I pushed most of it aside. I don't remember my experience at other locations being this gross but I'm sure different locations have different standards. Also very small and claustrophobic feeling. Had to open the... More

Pick up stix is well.... Pick up stix. It is reliable to always taste exactly the same, no matter which location you visit. This particular store has VERY LITTLE seating, but also has some tables outside. They are friendly and courteous.

I've never been a fan of Pick up Stix. I haven't had a bad experience with the service-just the food. Their food is always very salty and expensive for what you get. Even when our work had Pick up stix catered (free food!), I ate something else. Go somewhere else for Chinese food.

I've been going to Pick Up Stix for a while now and it's become my favorite go-to restaurant for excellent and quick Chinese take-out. The ingredients taste of better quality and the preparation is great. I've never had a bad experience here and will continue to return.

The food was fast, but still good. There was outside seating as well as inside. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was very nice.

I ate so many Chinese/Taiwanese food. This is just where american chinese food sells. There is no difference than Panda Express. Over salted/sweetened for Chinese food and not authentic Chinese food. Maybe recommended for American, but not recommended for any Chinese/Taiwanese and other asians that wants to get a taste of hometown.
