The "fast casual" chain is renowned for its chicken tenders, and they seem to be a hit in the ol' Carroll-hood. Diner feedback was positive at a recent training just before the restaurant's grand opening on Aug. 12. The company's founders include Outback Steakhouse co-founder Bob Basham.
The menu isn't terribly elaborate; not as much variety as, say, Evos, but it does offer some staples with a healthy bent; items that aren't processed, fried in lard, frozen or packed with MSG.
Whole wheat buns, hand-cut fries and low-cal options help make a visit to the speedy, spacious eatery one that wouldn't get a disapproving look from your doctor.
PDQ opened its first eatery in 2009 as Tenders. Its approach to quality, friendly service and cleanliness ensured popularity pretty dern quick.
