  3. PDQ, which stands for “People Dedicated to Quality” or also referred to as “Pretty Darn Quick,” specializes in fresh food fast that is made-to-order with only the freshest ingredients. With no microwaves or freezers in the restaurant, PDQ exceeds all fast casual restaurant expectations.

    At your convenience, we would love to invite you to come try a complimentary lunch or dinner for you and a guest and take a “Fresh Tour” for a behind the scenes look at the food preparation and execution.

    PDQ specializes in fresh food fast and prides itself on delicious hand-breaded and grilled chicken breasts, made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and hand spun milkshakes with eight standard flavors and a seasonal shake. New menu items include all white meat, honey marinated chicken nuggets and a Cali Club sandwich, featuring fresh avocado and perfectly crisp bacon. PDQ’s sauces and dressings are homemade every day and sides feature healthier options such as fresh coleslaw with blueberries or apples with a toffee dipping sauce.

    With 45 locations in nine states, PDQ is rapidly growing. Restaurant Business Magazine recently named PDQ as the #1 fastest growing small chain in America, Nation’s Restaurant News chose PDQ as a 2014 Hot Concepts recipient and QSR Magazine named PDQ its July 2014 One to Watch. All menu items are under $10 and combo meals start as low as $7.69.


    Please let me know if you are interested in a complimentary lunch and Fresh Tour at one of the two Cedar Park locations, located at 2920 South Lakeline Blvd and 4501 183A Toll Rd. I will be happy to coordinate with our restaurant manager the date and time you are interested in visiting the restaurant.

    Many thanks,
