Las Vegas is home to burger wars, chicken wing skirmishes and now the battle for your chicken tender dollar is heating up. Set to rival Raising Cane's, Original Chicken Tenders and Strip N Dip Chicken Strips, PDQ is on its way.

PDQ, which stands for People Dedicated to Quality, was created by former Outback Steakhouse co-founder Bob Basham and Nick Reader, former CFO of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The small but focused menu specializes in crispy chicken tenders with choice of homemade sauce, fries or blueberry coleslaw. They also serve chicken sandwich and salads. No red meat.

Their other gimmick is to elevate the fast food environment, design and service to give the impression of a fast-casual destination, rather than a take out joint.

The Las Vegas branch will occupy 4,296 square feet with a drive-thru at the corner of Sahara Avenue and Richfield Boulevard and include a main dining room, plus an enclosed "sun room" patio.

The quickly expanding venture has locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Texas. Construction has yet to start on the City-approved project in Las Vegas.
