The OG Orange Chicken
Dubbed the Chinese Food King, Panda Express has been serving tray after tray of American Chinese fast-food cuisines since 1983. Sure, everybody knows that they’re famous for their sensational Orange Chicken entrée. But did you know that there’s a very good reason why it says ‘The Original Orange Chicken’ under it on their menu?
That’s right! Panda Express is home to the very first Orange Chicken ever made. Impressed yet?
With 2,200 locations as of 2019, they are indeed the largest Asian segment restaurant chain in the United States. Panda Express had its fair share of humble beginnings, previously only opening outlets at food courts and major shopping malls. However, you can now find a Panda Express in various universities, airports, casinos, amusement parks, and even military bases.
Besides being a trailblazer, we think that Panda Express also deserves a nod of approval for prioritizing their valued customers’ health. Their Wok Smart dishes boast an array of fan-favorite items with a guarantee that they contain at least 8g of protein and calories amounting to no more than 300
If Orange Chicken isn’t your thing, you may be tempted by other bold flavors from Panda Express. Dishes like the Kung Pao Chicken, Beijing Beef, and the Black Pepper Angus Steak are all fan favorites. These classics are available online for pick-up or delivery!
Ways to Order
There’s just something unique about everyone passing around those little take-out boxes of Chow Mein and Fried Rice at the dining table. It’s just not enough to settle for what you’ve ordered alone. With that in mind, allow us to provide you with a little guide on how to have the best Panda Express delivery experience for your next Chinese take-out craving

The app versions of all the listed delivery companies are available both on Google Play Store and Apple’s IOS App Store. Take full advantage of the various membership perks or discounts that these apps offer to enjoy your Panda Express at a lower price.
2. Panda Express Website and App
Unfortunately, all the convenience that popular delivery apps provide does come at a cost. More so, if you opted not to pay for the app’s membership fees. You’ll likely find that your bill at the checkout page is a little more expensive than what you would pay at their physical restaurants.
No worries, though! Panda Express has its very own website and mobile app where you can enjoy online delivery or pick-up services as well. What’s more, they do not hike the prices up as high as their delivery partners do. Just find the store nearest to you and start placing your order!
