Our Food

Here at PDQ we keep it fresh. And we make it fast.

What’s our secret sauce? Every morning we start from scratch with farm-fresh ingredients. Serving up homemade sauces, dressings, candied almonds, and croutons crafted in house. Every day.

Every hand-breaded tender, dreamy sandwich, and hand-tossed salad is made-to-order in our check-us-out open kitchen. Just like the ones in fancy restaurants and on cooking shows. Wave to the team, they’ll wave back.

We keep things simple and do them the right way. Because that’s the only way we know how. No added steroids. No added hormones. No nonsense. Just delicious food that makes you feel good.

It’s a difference you can taste. It’s food, the way you want it. Want an ingredient added? Something changed? Just ask us. We’ll do it with a smile.

It’s our never-ending promise to you. And what we serve seven days a week.

Very Best Vendors

Our beverages, condiments and extras are sourced from local favorites – Grillo's pickles, Pederson's bacon, Joffrey's and more. They’re our kinda people.

Christie’s Cookies
No substitutes. No shortcuts. Only real butter and gourmet ingredients handcrafted with integrity and quality. Cookie variations are made with the finest chocolate chips from sustainably farmed cocoa beans, juicy California raisins, pure Madagascar bourbon vanilla, Heath® toffee crumbles, the finest brown sugar, Saigon cinnamon, and exotic macadamia nuts imported from South America and South Africa.

Grillo’s Pickles
Grillo's Pickles began with a 100-year-old family recipe, originated in Italy, and a pickle cart. Travis Grillo only chose the highest grade, naturally crunchy cucumbers, adding fresh (never frozen!) white California-grown garlic and organic, fresh cut dill. Just like they do today for all their fans, like PDQ. All Natural, low Calorie, Fat Free, Vegan, Certified Kosher, Gluten Free, Raw Grape leaves as a natural preservative.

Turano
For over a half century, the Turano family has followed European traditions to bake the freshest, highest quality artisan-style breads and a variety of rolls. Sharing a favorite family recipe from past generations, we use authentic time honored techniques to ensure exceptional old world flavor in each and every bite. The Turano family invites you to explore and share our passion for quality breads and the celebration of family.

Pederson’s Bacon
Pederson’s Bacon starts with real farmers. They work with self-sustaining family farms because they’re good stewards of their land while using no growth hormones or antibiotics, no nitrates, and are able to produce the best all natural bacon we’ve ever eaten. Easy enough, right? Seasoned. Smoked. Sliced. It’s a natural process with no complicated steps…kind of like their bacon…no nonsense, just natural.

Southeastern Mills
Through four generations of family ownership, Southeastern Mills has evolved into a sophisticated food company. Made from scratch quality, their perfectly blended seasoning mixes are the key to making your favorite meals even better when you’re short on time. Southeastern Mills newest element continually raises the bar for what we can expect from ourselves as we serve our customers.

Tillamook Cheese
Tillamook takes special pride in their history. For over a century their farmer-owners have been committed to providing families with the most consistent, best tasting, highest quality dairy products made in the most natural way possible, and their origins stretch back even earlier. It takes a lot of hard work to produce their high-quality dairy products, and it is a long tradition of excellence that makes them who they are today.

Joffrey’s Tea
100% Specialty Grade Arabica Beans for their coffees, and only the finest leaves to produce their black, white and green teas and tisanes. Sweet or unsweetened, they are a local Florida favorite with a passionate following across the country.

Cheerwine
A one-of-a-kind bubbly soft drink with a hint of wild cherry for a legendary taste - because it’s legendary. LD Peeler created Cheerwine in 1917 in Salisbury, NC (next door to Tenders) amid a sugar shortage during WWI. It became an immediate hit. And almost 100 years later, Cheerwine is still a family-owned business, with L.D's great grandson leading the company.

Hunter Farms 
Harvey B. Hunter started Hunter Dairy back in 1917 in Charlotte, NC. Mr. Hunter needed a way to get the milk his farm produced to the market, so Hunter Farms was born. Hunter Farms has worked hard to continue to grow and keep pace with new ideas and technology. From the very beginning, Hunter Farms has been synonymous with quality. With Hunter Farms' all-natural ice cream mix, it helps create our tasty hand-spun milkshakes here at PDQ.

Coca-Cola
The Coca-Cola Company is the world’s largest beverage company, offering over 500 brands to people in more than 200 countries. At Coca-Cola, they are serious about making positive contributions to the world. That starts with reducing sugar in their drinks and continuing to introduce new ones with added benefits. It also means continuously working to reduce the environmental impact, creating rewarding careers for their associates and bringing economic opportunity wherever they operate.

Simply Heinz
Grown, not made. It’s not merely a slogan. It’s a product truth. Every tomato in every bottle is grown from Heinz seeds. Each year Heinz tests 300 tomato varieties to find the sweetest, thickest, juiciest ones for their ketchup. Most of the farmers who nurture the seeds and grow the tomatoes have done it for generations. No genetic modification techniques used here. And they’re as proud of Heinz Ketchup as we are.
