Lao Sze Chuan - are the chain branches any good?

Was wondering about opinions on the food here as I was hoping for a good or at least decent option when I don’t feel like driving downtown to asiatown.
We have one opening around the corner soon and I was browsing the menu, wow is that a large and expensive menu.
I’m sure I’m going to give it a go, but what’s the consensus?

Have not been to any outside the city but the one up near Argyle on Broadway used to quite good. Now I want some three chili chicken … sigh

The restaurants can be quite variable, which is not surprising. The quality of the chef controls. We pretty much only do the LSC in Chicago Chinatown which can also vary in quality depending who is in the kitchen. But we are pretty ingrained. The only restaurant that both of my kids insist on visiting when they are in town.
