We had lunch at this Panda Express and I had the mixed vegetables and chicken teriyaki, and a chicken egg roll. The egg rolls are usually very flavorful but this one was kind of blah. Doesn't make sense as this is a chain. Otherwise the veggies and chicken were delicious!!! Great place to stop for quick lunch!

The restaurant was out of the side that I wanted so I just downsized. They must of had a big rush before we got there! Anyhow while my husband and I were eating our food they brought over the side that I originally wanted. Nice staff!! Very Accommodating. We would definitely eat here again.

Located on busy section of street, has roomy, well lit dining area. Clear signage of whether to go right or left when you come in would be helpful as you find your way to counter to place order. Prices reasonable at this chain restaurant and brown rice is now available as a choice instead of fried rice, steamed veggies or... More

We have eaten at panda express many times. This time I got the shrimp and a chicken dish. The dish was very bland. When I asked for salt we were told the restaurant was out of salt, so other than adding some sauces, we were disappointed.

I don't know what they use to cook with but for me the taste isn't pleasant. The food always seems to have an oily after taste! I have tried it more then once and at a different location....Not something I will ever try again.

This restaurant is very large and clean. The food is displayed nicely. There is plenty of dining space. We always have the orange chicken. It was good, as usual. The day we visited, the counter staff appeared to be sharing some great story or joke on their headphones. The guy that waited on us, while very nice, was totally not... More

Every visit to Panda Express is consistent. Good food, adequate portions with no waste and the food tastes fresh. My favorite is a bowl of black pepper chicken with chow mein. It's cool how you can choose your side: noodles, white rice, brown rice or mixed vegetables. Dishes are pretty heavy on the salt.

This place was pretty good when it first opened, but it has fallen to the same trap that most huge chains fall into: bland food that has been neglected too long and dries out, or just tastes like frozen, warmed over stuff you get anywhere else. Some of the items aren't bad, but there is a small, genuine Chinese restaurant... More
