Panda Bowl Express would be considered a "fast food" restaurant, but only because of the prices and the way you can get your food. The quality of the (yummy!) food and (abundant) portions are really something out of a Chinese restaurant. Panda has spicy or mild food, authentic Asian food or Americanized Chinese food, dine-in or drive-thru. It has a kid's menu (Chinese food or regular old chicken nuggets with fries) and a kid's playground outside (I guess the old locale used to be a Burger King or something). The food isn't heavy or overly greasy, but the portions on the large combo are pretty big so I'd advice the small bowl if you're on the run.
