Angus Barn chef creates sandwich for PDQ
Walter Royal, the longtime executive chef at the Angus Barn in Raleigh, has created a new sandwich for the fast casual restaurant chain, PDQ, to benefit charity.
Royal’s creation combines fresh chicken marinated in his signature cracked black pepper honey and served crispy with bacon, pickles and shredded lettuce on a brioche bun with a homemade barbecue ranch sauce. Royal is the Iron Chef America-winning chef at Raleigh’s longtime, beloved steakhouse.
The sandwich costs $5.99 each or $8.99 as part of a combo meal, includes a side and a beverage. For every one of Royal’s sandwiches sold, the restaurant will donate $1 to the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness.
The sandwich will be available at the restaurants starting Oct. 9 at six North Carolina PDQ locations, including in Wake Forest, Cary, Durham and Raleigh.
