Chicken. Just Made, Better. That’s where it all starts with award-winning PDQ restaurant – short for “People Dedicated to Quality.” PDQ, which recently opened next to Paradise Valley Mall, offers chef-driven recipes and mindful ingredients typically found in a fine casual restaurant with the value, speed and convenience of the fast food and fast casual segment. Beloved throughout the country for its hand-breaded chicken tenders, PDQ crafts delicious salads, sandwiches, bowls and hand-spun milkshakes fresh in store, every day. All of PDQ’s 12 homemade sauces and dressings are made in-house each morning.

“We are so excited to be a part of this incredible community,” said PDQ Operating Director Kristy Haase. “We have already had the opportunity to meet so many people in this area and look forward to introducing PDQ and our delicious food to everyone.”
The PDQ menu features something for all ages. PDQ uses fresh, never frozen chicken for all of its tenders, sandwiches, salads and bowls and crafts its menu items from scratch and made to order. The chicken options include crispy or grilled and pair perfectly with the homemade sauces, with favorites like Sweet Sriracha, Creamy Garlic, Buffalo Bleu, Honey BBQ and more. The sandwich section includes fan favorites like the Buffy Bleu, Cali Club, Pimento Crunch to name a few. Salads like PDQ’s Classic Crispy or Yia Yia’s Greek salad and bowls like the Saucy Bowl and Thai Peanut all feature fresh ingredients prepped daily in-house and every meal can be Just Made, Better with a delicious side like fan favorites zucchini fries, fresh apple slices with homemade toffee dip, tots, queso and others.

And don’t forget to wrap up your meal with a hand-spun milkshake – Chocolate, Oreo and Heath are just a few of the mouth-watering choices – a fresh-baked cookie, or one of PDQ Coca-Cola Freestyle Floats.
