PDQ–Fresh, Fast Foods

We visited PDQ way back before Christmas and now just finally wrote a post on them.  Right off the start, full disclosure, you will not find any gluten free friendly statement from PDQ on their website (http://www.eatpdq.com/) or in their restaurant.  We did find their Falls of Neuse location’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PDQFalls/posts/398763470199919) which referenced a gluten free menu coming soon and that if you talk to the folks in the restaurant, they can work with any allergy/intolerance.  With that said, we decided to go ahead and try.  We mentioned in the past our daughters do not seem ultra-sensitive, so with some precautions, they seem to do fine.  Just for the record, PDQ says their grilled chicken and fries are gluten free, as the fries are cooked in a dedicated frier of soybean oil.   The girls also like the Coke Freestyle machine.  If you did not yet find one of these, you can find them in places like PDQ, Moe’s, and BurgerFi.  It is a touch screen that lets you make a large variety of drinks.  For instance, not just Coke Zero, but maybe you want a Cherry or Vanilla Coke Zero.  Our girls love these!

Again, I would not recommend this for anyone with large sensitivities to gluten.  For us though, like places such as Mellow Mushroom, zPizza, and others, where contamination could occur, we went ahead and tried PDQ.  No noted side effects, so we will probably try this again sometime.  You can find many locations on our Raleigh Cel Kids Google Map (click here) at Falls of Neuse, Wake Forest (on 98 by Carolina Ale House), and in Cary.
