“Outstanding Service and good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Go here for the great service alone! They go out of their way to serve their customers with respect, kindness, and a positive attitude! We got a platter of the fried and grilled chicken strips ( for a party) and both were good. I often get a salad with the grilled strips- they are well-seasoned and flavorful. We have always had good luck here and appreciate their good service!

“Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

I am completely puzzled that the fried chicken strips are their main item but lack flavor. I had the grilled chicken breast which was tasty and tender but nothing memorable. The taste of the food at PDQ makes Chic Fila look like Divine Gods. Wishing them well as the parking lot has some detrimental issues.

“They live up to their name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very quick service through the drive thru. The young lady who took my order was very pleasant and thanked me for my custom. I had the chicken strips meal with honey mustard dipping sauce. The food was hot, well prepared and delicious. It has become my go to restaurant when I am in need of a fast (very) food fix. Much better than the large chain restaurants found on the same street.

“Fast and Fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I have eaten several times in the last few months and have never been disappointed. The salads are fresh and loaded. The sandwiches are fantastic, my new favorite is the fried turkey breast. Shakes are thick. Fries are great. This location has a good selection of fresh brewed tea and a coke freestyle machine. If you are looking for fast food with a little flair PDQ has it it.

“Refreshing new restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Our family had 2 crispy chicken salads - one with garlic ranch and one with honey mustard and a chicken strips basket. The salads were super fresh with crisp lettuce, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, and cucumbers complemented by the best chicken strips!!!

Great homemade dipping sauces! Everyone loved the sweet hot sauce (buffalo with mango?) and the buffalo blue.

Only a few menu choices but what they have is excellent. If you want chicken - GO HERE!!!

Priced like a fast food restaurant but provides an atmosphere like a great sit down restaurant. Love the hand washing station immediately inside the door! Great idea!!!

Food was ready before we finished getting our drinks. Kids liked the 'freestyle' coke machine (100+ flavors) and I enjoyed the fresh brewed green tea (Joffrey's).

Dessert??? Yes please! Yummy hand spun strawberry shake and, like others said ... GET THE APPLES AND TOFFEE DIP!!! So yummy and only $2!!!

We will be back - maybe even tomorrow!!! :)
