Fast food to the next level. Every time I eat here I get the grilled chicken sandwich with fries, which is delicious. They use fresh ingredients and make most of the menu from scratch, for example the last time I was there a worker was cutting fresh lemons for their homemade lemonade. I asked her about it and she said... More

I would consider PDQ above average for fast food, but I find it just ok - I don't quite understand all the raving reviews. The chicken tenders are good and the milkshakes are good. The fries, however, are as soggy and greasy if not soggier and greasier than Five Guys' fries. The overall ambience of PDQ is pleasant and the... More

Ate lunch here today- we eat here often. One of us had the grilled chicken salad and the other the grilled chicken sandwich- both were excellent. There is a huge sink right in the restaurant to wash your hands before eating. The restaurant was extremely clean and we are always happy with their friendly service. A shout out to Kelsey... More

We stopped here on the way to a show in downtown St. Pete. It exceeded my expectations in every way! The chicken tenders have an amazing breading and I love the real blue cheese dipping sauce. The fries are flavorful and skinny. They remind me of Five Guys fries, except thinner and a little crisper. Yum! The crispy turkey sandwich... More

This is FAST food and when I say fast our order for 3 people were out before we even had time to finish making our drinks, so that's a plus. Restrooms are clean and modern and they even have a washing station outside of the restroom if you don't want to go to the restroom to clean your hands. Everyone... More

If we're ever in NE St Petersburg, the kids always want PDQ. The chicken strips are the favorite. They're selection of dipping sauces is pretty good. I personally like the Sweet Heat, but the kids enjoy the Chipotle BBQ. PDQ puts their Sweet Heat sauce on a Crispy Turkey Sandwich which is also pretty tasty. The fresh made pickles top... More

Went here with the family, here is the only comparison I can come up with Chicken Sandwich + CHIK-FI Chicken Strips edge PDQ (tip get 4 strips, 3 isn't quite enough) Cole Slaw + CHIK-FI (PDQ has blueberry coleslaw - sounds extraordinary but isn't) Fries = for me, I love waffle fries, but old fashion greasy fries are still the...

We visit PDQ frequently but went recently with a group of friends. They had a "Teacher Appreciation" night where they gave free meals to teachers- we felt very appreciated by them and we all enjoyed our meals! A big thank goes out to them from many, many teachers! We have had many items on their menu but enjoy the salads... More

Really some of the best chicken strips I've had. They look thin at first but they are very meaty. They have the right amount of batter. The dips are great! Loved the creamy garlic and the chipotle. The fries are seasoned well and have a great flavor and will go well with whatever did you choose.
