PDQ to Open in Frisco

How many of you have children who eat almost nothing but chicken nuggets and fries? To me, it’s a horrible fixation for kids and adults. I blame McDonald’s, but there are plenty of other contenders. All of you stuck on Raising Cane’s chicken strips can hit me now.

In mid-March, PDQ will open in Frisco (4585 Preston Rd.). People Dedicated to Quality will offer “hand-tossed” chicken tenders, sandwiches, salad, fries, homemade dressings and sauces, milkshakes and malts. Their goal is to create  high-quality food, memorable service, and genuine hospitality.”

The burgeoning chain started in Tampa in late 2011. They must be doing something right: There are 18 locations across the south and another six in the works. I’m anxious to try their blueberry coleslaw.

Hand-tossed milkshakes makes me think of Harvey Gough, the curmudgeon behind the counter at Goff’s. Whenever you order a shake to go, he poured it in a white sack. That is if he didn’t kick you out before you ordered.

  1. PDQ chicken tenders really are the best around and there are seven sauces made fresh daily to accompany them (sweet heat is great for sriracha lovers!). The salads are fresh and the French fries are real potatoes that are “punched” then baked then fried. Many of the operations folks come from Outback so the service standards are incredibly high.
