Anybody know what happened to Panda Express? I always thought their food was good and there was always a good crowd there.

I never thought that they were that busy. But I always thought they were overpriced for the quality.

Closed down due to finding mucus in the food.
Real reason we closed

Unfortunely we had to close due to low sales. Our brand is widely accepted across the country but for some reason we never did well in Hickory. We just opened our 1,600 store and will continue to grow. Maybe we will give Hickory another try someday. Check us out at www.Panda Express.com

I think the strip of Hwy. 70 between Hickory Toyota and Valley Hills Mall is like a dead zone for restaurants...Buffalo's Cafe, Mama's Pizza, Fudruckers, Sagebrush Steakhouse, Firebonz, Panda Express, etc...

Maybe it has to do with the difficulty getting in and out of those places... As far as Buffalo's maybe if it weren't for a sink hole twice they’d still be in business.

My wife and I ate there once, and that was
one time too many.
I can't imagine it stayed in business as long as
it has.
Why, oh why, did Ragazzi's close at that location?
They had the best food and I still long for their
North and South dish.
We about had a hissy-fit when we learned they
were closing.
Not so for Panda Express.
A Steak and Shake would be a good replacement
at that location,
or:
Bring back Steak and Ale
Bring Donna's down here from Hudson
Bring Charlie's Chicken from Maiden
Bring the Chop House from East Tennessee
Bring Ol' Bobs BBQ from Statesville
Denny's
Church's Chicken
Popeye's chicken
Logan's Roadhouse
And lots of other possibilities.
Something good, this time.

Greetings:
A look at Panda Express from the inside - Yes, I have to admit I was an employee of Panda Express!!!!

Folks - I'm here to tell you Panda Express is perhaps the worst example of a restaurant that I have ever known - they buy the worst products, such as #4 vegitables - and are a genuinely dirty establishment - the customer service even stinks - but even worse thatn stinks - pandas view is that customers owe the company - ""You should be happy your getting to pay for a disgusting and over priced meal.

Is this a vent -- well, perhaps because I hate them -- but what I have written is the truth..

BOYCOTT PANDA EXPRESS -- Chinese owned BS Organization.

You people saying buffalos is gone...they just UPGRADED from behind the mall to a new bigger location across from Barnes & Noble....maybe it's ghost Buffalos. Hate that place, but still, get your damn facts straight. Idiots.

I'm guessing by your name and attitude, by calling someone an
"idiot", we won't be seeing you in Sunday School and/or church in the near future.
There isn't any way that you know the Lord as your Savior with
that attitude.
I hate that for you.
Forever never ends.
Frankly, "wailing and gnashing of teeth", and "just touch my
tongue with a drop of water for I am tormented in this place"
doesn't sound like a place where I'd care to spend eternity...
and I won't.
If you die today, that's exactly where you'll end up...in hell.
You can never escape hell. It goes on and on and on and on.......
Write all you like in answer to my email.
I won't ever come back to this site.
I won't give you the satisfaction of thinking I'd see
your venom-spitting.
Try to enjoy your short life here on earth.
You surely won't enjoy the spirit life you have coming soon.

There was a Buffalo's Café located on 70....there was a sink hole that formed in front of it...they closed down. This is not Buffalo Wild Wings that you are talking about. Get YOUR facts straight before you call other people "idiots".
