Opinions about Pei Wei Asian Diner(s)

I was en route between Springfield and Radnor today and stopped at Pei Wei on Baltimore Pike. Seven foot high menu panels greet you with an interesting selection of fusion dishes. Service is in a rather cavernous, cafeteria-like atmosphere with blaring disco music. I had the two egg rolls for $4, the Mandarin Kung Pao for $8 and a self-serve soda for $1.86. The rolls were OK, the Kung Pao OK, but the 10oz. mound of rice was overkill. Overall, in terms of value and ambiance, a rip off. Many local restaurants have excellent lunch specials for half the $15 price tag with tablecloths, wait service and comfortable seating. Its not on my return trip list.

I understand they are a national chain with new outlets in Cherry Hill and City Line. Anyone else carry similar sentiments or did I miss something?
