“Good food, fast service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Nice little spot in Cornelius,I had a great chicken cesar salad, my daughter had a chicken sandwich, the service was really fast, you order at the counter, then they call your name. Nothing fancy but a nice spot for a quick bite to eat, reasonalbly priced, lunch was $13.00

“Awesome place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

One of my very favorite places for a quick bite. This is the original PDQ's and a great chicken place. Everything is always fresh (never frozen) and the french fries are freshcut as well and perfectly seasoned. Love their dipping sauces (garlic is the best) and the any-flavor-you-want Coke machines are the bomb. Best chicken tenders place ever.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

The menu is small but that's okay because what is on it is done well. They are the best chicken tenders I have ever had. The homemade sauces were super.

“If you like Chicken Tenders, this is the place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

The title says it all: not much variety, but if you like chicken tenders they're top-notch here. Fresh tasting, nicely cooked, good sauces. They've specialized - and it works! Not a fancy place -but the environment is a step up from the large fast food joints. Try it INSTEAD of those big franchises for a good bite.

“Simple done right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

While I appreciate a wide variety of foods, I totally have to respect a place that does one thing and does it well. You come to Tenders for chicken. That's it. Chicken tenders. Fresh, never frozen (they don't own a freezer). There you go, chicken, fries, and a drink (maybe some cole slaw). The lines are out the door for a good reason.
