Naturally you must like Chinese food or forget coming here. We loved it! 3 adults two kids age 6 had dinner here in Aug. 2016. We ordered one appetizer (edamame), two entrees and two vegetables. There was plenty for everyone and after paying entertainment park prices (Legoland) for lunch this seemed like a steal at only $55 (or so) for... More

Decent food, not so far from LEGOLAND. Decent Service. Parking can be challenging. Tricky parking spaces.

Hubby ordered the BBQ Chix entree and I ordered a large bowl of the spivey Chix soup. We planned to share. The soup was brought out first in a nice covered soup Dish. The potion was very, very generous and this was the best soup we had ever had. Very hot, delicious flavor, meat & veggies cooked just right. The... More

I have been to many PF Changs locations (all over CA, AZ, NV, etc) and this had to be the worst one hands-down. The food came out kind of cold....too little meat on the plates versus the trimmings....and the service was really cold. It took too long to take our order when the restaurant was only 10% full (it was... More

See some of the other reviews weren't so great, but we had absolutely great service. Seated immediately, orders taken shortly thereafter, and our drinks and food came out minutes later. I had a very nice noodle dish and my wife had a delicious orange peel chicken. Mixed drinks were pretty good too. Plenty of parking and right across the street... More

Busy restaurant but yummy food! They have a nice atmosphere, casual and slightly upscale Asian food. They are good for a family dinner or a date. Easy to get a vegetarian meal!

We frequent PF Changs as we travel because you know what you are getting (they are all pretty much the same) and our kids love the food. While this particular location was very convenient (we had been across the street at the Premium Outlets), it was not one of our favorites. There were only 2 other families in the restaurant...

PF Chang's do not vary much and that's why people go to them. You can ask for gluten free soy sauce. I like the lettuce wraps. Go early, as they can get really busy.
