Started by the same brains behind Outback Steakhouse, PDQ serves up a variety of chicken tenders, sandwiches, salads, and more in a fast-casual and contemporary setting.
We visited PDQ ("People Dedicated to Quality" or "Pretty Darn Quick") back in December for our Taste Tour of 813 and can definitely attest, they've got a great concept on their hands.
In addition to deliciously fresh and fried chicken tenders, they've also got great, hand cut fries, shakes, and a Coke Freestyle machine with over 100 different soft drink choices.
The next PDQ will open at the Shops at Wiregrass around May, followed by a Carrollwood location in June, a St. Petersburg location in July, and a North Carolina one at a yet to be determined date.
PDQ officials are also eyeing future locations in Sarasota, Brandon, Clearwater, and the USF area. Stay tuned as more news develops regarding the ever-growing PDQ.
