We were traveling from north of Dallas to Houston and stopped here for lunch. We had our Labrador with us so we needed a place with outside seating so she could be with us. This Panera was a perfect choice. The food was excellent and the manager noticed we were sitting outside with the dog and brought us an extra... More

Really like that they have such a large menu, with so many options. They have committed to all fully clean food by end of the year, so they will have my business for a long time to come!

Our past experience is that the food you get at Panera Bread is comparable at each of their locations. However, this particular Panera Bread is a cut above because of the staff. They are amazing! My husband and I went there for breakfast. Of course, there are too many choices of wonderful pastries, etc. etc. So I asked the lady... More

We recently tried the newly advertised Panera Broth Bowls, one with Chicken and Wontons and one Italian Chicken. Both were very salty and had very little meat. We complained to the cashier, who promptly sent the manager over. She was very pleasant and offered to replace our meals with anything else we would like. We declined the free meal offer,... More

We have eaten here quite a few times. They never disappoint. The wait staff is friendly and very professional. One of the things we really like about this Panera Bread is the seating area is divided up in a way that helps keep the noise level down. This particular occasion was a group of 10 people from our office celebrating... More

Usually quite busy at lunch time but lines move quickly and food is served promptly. Breads are very good. Nice selection of sandwiches, soups and desserts.

The food is good. I have only picked up from this location and there has never been any problems with the food or otherwise. I do have to say that we experienced outstanding customer service today. We had placed our order and then we were unable to pick up the food right away. After 40 minutes and unable to leave... More
