P.F. Changs!

A P.F. Changs just opened in Warrington. I am going to try it one of these days but was wondering what people think of it?

  1. Better than most chains but still a chain. Give it a try and see what you think.

    1. If this thread:

      is any indication of your expectations, you'll hate PF Chang's.

      1. Try Sangkee, in Chinatown or Wynnewood, instead.

        1. Although it's a chain, it's one we go to occassionally. I love their hot & sour soup, lettuce wraps, etc. It's sort of americanized Chinese, like tex Mex instead of mexican

            Tex-Mex isn't actually Americanized Mexican. It started as part of the Indian culture, once conquered by the Spanish adopted the foods from there and then moved to the border. The history is more complex than my little blurb, but I wanted to at least make a point of saying that.

          2. It's gross and greasy. There are so many non-chains that it seems silly to even try it.

              Is it silly because it's a chain? Because I don't agree that PF is gross or greasy, even if it isn't exactly high cuisine.

              In any case, I agree with one of the above comments that, if the past is any indication, the OP will probably not like PF Changs. However, I maintain that people who go to PFC aren't the same type who stay in Philly & eat at Olive Garden - the food at PFC are of a slightly better quality than that, albeit overly salty.

              In any case, I recommend the OP try out PFC when the chance arises but would not make an excursion out of in.

                What's worse than mediocre Chinese food? Overpriced, mediocre Chinese food at a chain.

                As HHshames posted, there are too many local Chinese places that are good to waste time and money at PF Changs IMO.
