Simple but very good ordering. Go to counter, place order, find your table, and wait for them to call your name to pick up order at counter. Tenders are excellent. Variety of dipping sauces to satisfy any taste. If you are inclined malt vinegar is available for the fries.

Went for carry out on Sunday after church. Despite the place being very busy, we received our large order quickly. Chicken tenders are moist. Good variety of dipping sauces no limit with order. If going carb free, sandwiches can be made into wraps. Fries were only okay. Apple slices with toffee dip delicious.

Tenders provided fast service and a low key atmosphere. Great for a quick lunch or dinner. My teenage kids ate their fill! Good option from other fast food restaurants.

We had sandwiches, salads and tenders and everything was excellent. The shakes were the best I've had in years.

The service is always great and the orders are ready pretty quickly. A great alternative to traditional fast food stops.

If you are looking for a quick, casual and healthy meal, there are options for you at Tenders! Tenders offers traditional chicken fillets with fries and a blueberry coleslaw. The fillets are amazingly moist and tasty. Yesterday we tried two of several salads with your choice of fried or grilled fillets. There is an option to add avocado or bacon,... More
