a typical americanized chinese food type of fast service restaurant with a twist, having a full bar at the same time. PF Chang's is the most sucessful americanized chinese cuisine restaurant in the mainland and has more then 130 stores. PF Changs is the epitome of the American-Chinese Cuisine (differentiated from chinese cuisine by making veggies as garnishings instead of being the main draw as the same as meats.) is is the number one Chinese Bar cum restaurant in America. The chain was founded in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1993 by Paul Fleming and Philip Chiang. The restaurants serve American Chinese cuisine from a menu originally conceived and planned by chef Philip Chiang. "P. F. Chang's" is the namesake of Paul Fleming (P. F.) and Philip Chiang (whose surname is simplified to Chang.)

Favorite Dish: PF Chang’s chicken lettuce wraps are good, quickly cooked spiced chicken served with cool lettuce cups; crab wontons filled with creamy rock crab meat served with a spicy plum sauce on the side; and Sichuan chicken flatbread, Chinese scallion flatbread grilled with Sichuan marinated chicken, layered with melted cheese and served with a creamy Asian slaw but the best are the stir fried large scallops at $ 17 an order plus the cute fortune cookie (really an american invention since there are no fortune cookies in china ok!).
