Ubiquitous Chinese fast food restaurant Panda Express is touting its new extended summer hours by giving away an order of orange chicken.
You can get a single serving of the entre after 9 p.m. tomorrow (June 24) night. The usual restrictions apply.
Panda Express locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire.

I’ve written about what is probably the best deal on Chinese food on Tuesday, with Magic Wok’s $2 single-entre bowl deal.
But what do you do the rest of the week?
Recently-opened Wok N’ Grill, 905 N. Waterman Ave., San Bernardino, has your answer on Wednesdays, at least.
They’re offering the same deal as Magic Wok, only a penny cheaper — a single-entre bowl is $1.99 on Wednesdays.
While not quite the spectacle that Magic Wok was, a short line queued up the entire time I was there last night.
Panda Restaurant Group, Inc., which operates both Panda Inn and Panda Express here in the Inland Empire, is among the many restaurant chains (and local restaurants) donating to the relief effort in Japan.
Through the end of March, Panda Express, Panda Inn, and the non-I.E. Hibachi-San restaurant locations across the country will have in-store drop-boxes allowing guests to make contributions of any amount.
All guest-donated proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.
Also, contributions by the company’s 18,000 employees will be donated to the compassion relief organization, Tzu Chi Foundation, which is currently providing two hot meals per day in Oarai Town to the thousands of displaced people living in shelters.
The best part? Panda will match 100% of the proceeds collected at Panda Express, Panda Inn, Hibachi-San locations and by associates nationwide.
Panda Express locations can be found throughout the Inland Empire. You’ll find Panda Inn at 3223 E. Centrelake Drive in Ontario.
As they’ve done in the past, Panda Express is celebrating the introduction of a new entre by giving it away.
The Chinese fast food restaurant is giving away a single serving of Golden Treasure Shrimp today (March 9).
All you need is this coupon.
The new entre consists of tempura shrimp, with red and green bell peppers in a zesty citrus sauce. It debuted March 2.
Panda Express can be found throughout the Inland Empire.
I’m not sure how long this deal has been going, or how much longer it’s going to be offered, but on Tuesdays, Magic Wok is offering a single-entre bowl for only $2.
I discovered the deal when we went to Redlands’ Citrus Plaza to check out the new Cafe Rio.
As crowded as the new restaurant was, the older one next door was equally so.
I guess to compete in this economy, you’ve got to be willing to slash and burn your prices.
For one day, anyway.
The regular price for the bowl is $4.64, so on Tuesdays you save 57 percent.
Yesterday I went to check it out for myself.
Panda Express will be celebrating the return of its Firecracker Chicken Breast by offering a coupon for a free single-sized portion of Firecracker Chicken
Breast to its Facebook fans on Thursday, February 3.
February 3, not coincidentally, is the first day of the Chinese New Year celebration.
The entre consists of strips of marinated chicken breast, red, green and
yellow bell peppers, sliced onions and red chili peppers cooked with Panda’s original “firecracker”
The limited-time menu item is available now and will only be available until March 1.
Gung Hay Fat Choy!
99 Ranch, the Asian supermarket
stalwart, is planning to open at the end of the year on the southeast
corner of Archibald and Base Line in Rancho Cucamonga. 99 Ranch (or is it 99 Rancho?) will
be catty-corner to the 99 Cents store.
The grocery store will
replace Albertson’s, which closed April 2009. It will be the second 99
Ranch in the Inland Empire. The other one is in Chino Hills.
Attention Panda Express fans!
On Wednesday (March 10), you’ll be able to get a free single serving of their new honey walnut shrimp…if you’re a fan of theirs on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.
They’ll be posting coupons for the free entre on those social networking sites.
We here at Dine 909 are Facebook holdouts. Or you could say we’re Twitter snobs.
Of course, Panda Express has only tweeted twice. I guess they don’t have much to say.
But we’re now following them on Twitter, so we can get our coupon!
The new dish is “made with fresh tempura shrimp, wok-tossed in Panda’s signature gourmet honey sauce and topped with glazed walnuts,” according to a press release.
Sounds delish…log in and get ready for Wednesday!
Update: Follow this link for the coupon.
Earlier this month, P.F. Chang’s launched a new Happy Hour, which runs from 3 to 6 p.m. every day.
A quick glance revealed nearly all of the items on the Happy Hour menu are at least $2 off their usual prices. Most of the items I compared were $3 less.
Happy Hour items are priced from $3 to $6…get it? 3 to 6 p.m. — $3 to $6 prices? Clever, huh?
Of course, there is one item (a glass of Pabst Blue Ribbon) that’s only $2, but let’s pretend we didn’t see that.
We stumbled upon the Happy Hour this past Friday afternoon at the Victoria Gardens location in Rancho Cucamonga.
The result? For $20 and pennies per person (including tax, but not tip), we had a delicious, filling meal that included a wide variety of food, a high-end Margarita and dessert.
Follow the jump for more details.
Once again, our friends at Pick Up Stix have graced our email inbox with notifications of deals.
So, we here at Dine 909 are passing them along to you, Our Gentle Readers.
And their timing couldn’t have been more perfect, since one of the deals occurs on Tuesdays and the other takes place on Wednesdays.
In actuality, the dated deals are extensions of currently-running offers. Tuesdays (after 5 p.m.) brings two chicken entres, steamed white or brown rice and two vegetable egg rolls for $9.99. Wednesdays, you can purchase their cream cheese wontons for only 25, with a minimum purchase of two.
No coupon is necessary for either of these deals.
However, you can either click here for a coupon that gives you a free entre with the purchase of another, or you can click here for a gaggle (I believe that’s the correct term) of coupons that includes that buy-one-get-one-free coupon and others, including $5 off $20.
Thanks again, Tom!
