We went to PF Chang's on Spring Break. It is a short drive from the Westin Mission Hills Resort where we were staying.
PF Chang's is part of a big chain and the menu at this restaurant was the same as it is in my hometown.
There was a huge crowd trying to get into the restaurants while we were there. PF Chang's is very close to 7 or 8 other restaurants at The River.Mall. PF Chang's handled the crowd easily and well. They have beepers to let you know when your table is ready. They told us 20 minutes and we were seated in 10.
There was a special Thai menu. We had the Thai beef salad, some pan fried dumplings with pork, and a mild chicken noodle dish.
The server mixed a sauce to our table's liking. She asked if we wanted it hot or mild, then mixed a spicy mustard with a vinegar and a soy like sauce. This is something that is done at all of the PF Chang's restaurants that I don't understand. For me, the point of going out is that we all want something different and probably wouldn't agree on the sauce spiciness. But I think most people like this special touch.
The food came quickly, drink refills came quickly and I was impressed that the crowd didn't phase the kitchen. The food was good. I think of PF Chang's as an Americanized Chinese restaurant and is chain consistent from outlet to outlet. The food rarely wows but often hits the spot for a reasonable price.
The best time to go to Chang's is for Happy Hour. They offer it throughout the restaurant, not just in the bar. Cheap tasty bites and reduced drink prices are great. We didn't go to happy hour at this location but I recommend checking it out.
