Visited on 11/15/13 at opening of store for the day. The prices may be higher than corporate fast food joints but keep this in mind; you are supporting a small business. I would have liked a combo option but at this time one is not offered. They offer several different drink options from fountain soda to bottled products. The fountain soda taste a bit off on the mix and would do well to improve the customer experience by having that fixed as it seems there is more carbonation than syrup in the mix. I tried Dr.Pepper, Pepsi and the Mountain Dew. Due to the mix problem I found the Dr.Pepper and Pepsi unenjoyable, Mountain Dew can still be pretty good on a mix issue. Now to what you really want to hear about the food. I got the large Philly Cheese Steak with mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mayo, and cheese and let’s not forget the meat. I had thought about doubling the meat but was pleasantly surprised to find the sub over flowing. The bread was very soft with no hard spots I could find and tore easily when bit into. The vegetables in the sub were also very good and did not taste like they were mushy. The cheese was very good and did not taste like some cheap imitation cheese that some corporate chains use. There was so much cheese it every piece of food had it and it was over flowing when I opened the wrapper. The steak was very good, it was tender and flavor rich and I felt there was more than enough in the sub. I also had an order of fries. They are very good as well; although I can’t tell you the brand they appear to be shoe string and were cooked just right. The inside of the restaurant was very clean and seemed to offer ample seating for the small space they have. The counter space was also clean with good spacing with a display cabinet showing off various cookies, drinks and sauces. The kitchen also appeared very clean and organized. The shelf to the left of the register front has condiments of sauces and extra items to add to your sub. The menu did offer a good selection of items like different types of subs that are not all steak, burgers and a few other items. I did not check the restroom but if I had I would have expected the same kind of cleanness I had already seen. I would recommend to come here for cheese steaks and to support a local business. In the end prices may have been higher than what you would expect (keep in mind small business) but I felt I did get my monies worth. Out of 10 points I would give them 8 out of 10 points. That’s a light 8 based on issues with the fountain machine which could be easily fixed.
I moved to Denver from Queens almost 2 years and since that time I have basically given up on the Chinese Food industry out here. The choices were so awful in fact that resorted to the Panda express chain because at least I knew what I was getting for better or worse. Then I moved to a different part of Aurora and tried these guys. What a difference!!! Not only did it taste like it was straight out of a NYC Chinese food restaurant(to those of you who don't know NY has the best americanized Chinese food), but the prices were fantastic. The people who run it call me by name, and are cool to talk to. highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -Lost in the Midwest
Every other buffet restraunt I've been to in the metro area has been a hit or miss experience. Either the experience was enjoyable or so-so--same place--different day. I appreciate the "consistancy" of Mr. Panda's in terms of good taste and good prices. And, I especially appreciate Mr. Panda's extended lunch buffet hours! Makes it nice for those of us who want to have a late lunch, or early dinner at an affordable price! For those looking for crab legs, just pay the dinner price and dig in! ;-)
