We knew it was coming to West End, we just didn't know when -- until now.

P.F. Chang's will (finally) open this July, and good luck to you if you try to eat there for the first couple months. I'm not sure there's anything Lubbock loves more than a getting a new chain restaurant. Although that's one less excuse to travel to Dallas, Austin or Houston.

P.F. Chang's has over 200 locations, with 20 in Texas. Lubbock has had the fast-casual version of P.F. Chang's for many years: Pei Wei. The fare is very similar. However, P.F. Chang's has more ambiance, most expensive entrees (like salmon) and is a full-service concept.

I've only had P.F. Chang's once during a trip to Las Vegas. It was a nice place and the food was great. The restaurant itself held up to all the surrounding glamorous restaurants that Vegas offers. I'll definitely try Lubbock's location, but probably not until December when I can get a parking space.
