Restaurants: PDQ Opens in Cary
Cary, NC — PDQ, A new fast-casual restaurant, has opened in Cary. They serve tenders, salads and sandwiches with an interesting claim to fame: no freezers or microwaves.
PDQ Opens in Cary
The new PDQ in Cary is a very attractive and unique building, both inside and out, with bold colors and architecture. It’s located in the rapidly rising SearStone development at the corner of Davis and High House.
This is the third PDQ in the Triangle and the fourth in North Carolina. The restaurant chain started in Florida in 2011.
PDQ stands for “People Dedicated to Quality.” Nothing is frozen or microwaved. The tenders are hand-breaded, the salads hand-tossed. They serve chicken and turkey, no beef.
There’s also hand-turned milkshakes and fresh squeezed lemonade.
Report from the Field
PDQ was rocking at lunchtime today. Big crowds swarmed in after Green Hope’s freshman orientation, but the large staff kept it moving with wait times for food virtually non-existent.
The fries were crisp, and salads, sandwiches and chicken tenders all received enthusiastic endorsement from my party of six (three kids, three adults).
PDQ’s location at the corner of Davis and High House brings the number of fast-casual chicken joints in the neighborhood to three – Chick Fil A at Stonecreek, and Bojangles and PDQ in Searstone.
And, if I am not mistaken, Rudino’s serves chicken, as does Doherty’s and Cafe Caturra.
That’s six places to get chicken on one corner.
From now on, we’ll have to call the intersection of Davis and High House “Chicken Corner.”
