I am a huge fan of Panda Express; friendly staff, good portions, and open kitchens where I can see the staff preparing the food. For me, this makes a Panda Express a regular stop for me! I am a big fan of their surveys, and that way I get a free entree on my next visit! If you need a... More

Went to get some late dinner at 8:30 tonight, doors were locked. Says they're open until 9pm. At my past jobs we would get in trouble for closing early...maybe they should've put a sign up to let people know. There was another customer trying to get in as well.

Chinese fast food as its best. Panda Express is a good option when burgers and subs get old. This restaurant looks new and is run by friendly people. I went with the orange chicken - triple and fried rice with a Pepsi and was happy and full.

This is fine if you want American Chinese food fast, but it has turned American Chinese food into McDonald's, but at least they have some healthy options.

My wife and I have generally been disappointed with Chinese food -- especially buffets. Panda Express is not a buffet, but it does have all the food in front of you as you walk in. With that being said, we were impressed with how clean the restaurant was and how friendly the staff were. The food was also remarkably good.... More

went here for dinner and ordered the Kung pow chicken. First off, the service was very friendly and had outstanding customer service. I thought that the food was very good as well, very fresh. The price was just right for the amount of food you receive. The restaurant looked very clean! Keep up the great work, will most definitely be... More
