Recommended Ratings & Reviews
PDQ is one of my go to places for lunch, the rice bowl with crispy chicken is my favorite meal at PDQ, they also offer plenty of sauce options!
The service was top notch at PDQ in South Tampa and the food was even more amazing. I had the Chicken Tenders with Fries. They both had just the right about of seasoning but I was not too impressed with the sauces. They are good but could be improved. The soda machine is one of those new Coca Cola machines that let you choose your flavor of typical soft drinks and has like 150 varieties. The Fries are freshly made and they cut the potatoes right there in the restaurant. I love the open kitchen and how clean the place was. They even have a sink outside of the bathrooms where you can just wash your hands. Finally, the speed of service. When they say Pretty Darn Quick, they mean it. The meal for three was on the counter in about 30 seconds. I highly recommend checking out PDQ!
Pros: The service, the food, the cleanliness and the soda machine!
Cons: It is located on Dale Mabry and I usually stay away from this area of South Tampa as it can get really congested.
Pros: This place is fantastic. Amazing, from-scratch chicken tenders, fresh-cut fries to die for, and an awesome coke freestyle machine. Got our food in literally 30 seconds.
I got the chicken tenders and they were perfect! You will also not find better french fries ANYWHERE, these are the BEST! I liked the new coke machine so you can mix flavors and they have a sink to wash your hands without having to go into the bathroom. Overall great food, service, quality, and atmosphere. The outdoor patio is an excellent touch.
Pros: Quick and Quality food, great atmosphere, employees are friendly and helpful.
