PDQ review


PDQ workers prepare food with care and quality.

Colt Beat, Memorial Staff Writer

Yet another chicken restaurant has appeared near 2nd and Bryant. PDQ, which stands for People Dedicated to Quality, joined Chick-Fil-A, Raising Cane’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken on Jun. 25th.

From the start, founders Bob Basham and Nick Reader believed that food service should be friendly, fast and efficient. They also believed that food should be well prepared and inexpensive.

PDQ shows that they care for customers through their dedicated workers and exceptional food. The franchise promises that their food is made fresh. They also assure that their chicken has no added hormones or steroids and is prepared without the help of a microwave or freezer. This promise goes back to prove that the Q, which stands for quality, starts with the PDQ workers care and value of the customers.

The facility is breathtaking due to its interesting architecture and appropriate decor. Green walls, surround sound systems, corn hole games and a chicken statue all encompass that PDQ is a fun, trendy restaurant that satisfies entertainment needs. Also, the restaurant is kept clean and organized so that one can feel right at home due to the family friendly environment.

Upon walking into the restaurant, one is greeted with a welcoming staff member that is eager to satisfy a customer’s hunger. Patience and acknowledgment is shown from the PDQ workers when one orders from their massive selection. The menu varies with salads, chicken nuggets, tenders and sandwiches. Along with the main dish, homemade sauces, milkshakes, cookies and delicious sides are available to complete the meal. After ordering, the food was hot and ready two minutes later. When tasting the food that is made in a fast manner, one can tell that their meal was well prepared and full of flavor.

Overall, my needs as a customer were met at PDQ and I truly appreciate their wonderful customer service. The food was not only marvelous but it is prepared quickly. My order consisted of chicken nuggets, french fries, zucchini fries and a chocolate milkshake, all for a grand total of thirteen dollars. From the amount of food that I had received, it is obvious that the price is reasonable. The chicken nuggets are crispy and tender and the french fries are tasteful and not too greasy. The zucchini fries contained more batter than actual zucchini, which gives the consumer a burst of flavor. The milkshakes are creamy and rich. Every option that PDQ offers will ensure quality food all for a reasonable price. Personally, I cannot wait to revisit the restaurant and try more of their tasty options.
